So I've recently been given these Purity Products Vitamens and or Pills. One of them is a fish oil omega-3 pill and the other is an Advanced D Pill. These bottles together each with 60 pills is a total of almost 100 bucks. I did not buy them so don't tell me Im wasting my money. I am told that they are super concentrated so they will of course cost a lot more but also be more effective. I have been taking them for a couple of days now and I have noticed for about 4-6 hours after I take them I burp and ton and the burps literally taste so bad that they make me want to throw up. It's not only burping either. My poop almost smells like fish oil as well. I am very confused and I was wandering if this was normal and if I should stick with it or maybe too strong and I should lower it down and get some Optimum Pills. I read on the back of the fish oil bottle and it contains 650mg of EPA and 500mg of DHA, if that matters at all.
Please let me know any help is welcomed! (EVEN IF ITS A HYPOTHESIS)

I got the fish burps sparadically with NOW, but not so much with ON's, which states right on the bottle "No fish burps."
I am gonna try some of Controlled labs soon.Current Stack

Regardless, take with food, that typically helps the burps. Or put them in freezer that will help as well. Otherwise, change to something like Controlled Labs OxiMega fish oil which rarely if ever causes burps. Unfortunately, this is just what happens when you intake a lot of epa/dha.

2. Freezing slows degradation in the stomach allowing more to pass into the intestines.
3. Some fish oils contain the lipase enzyme, thus assisting in fatty acid digestion.
4. Try reducing the amount of air swallowed upon ingestion.
5. Taking them just prior to food [may] help as well.
