I have been taking cod liver oil gel-caps, three times a day for a week now. After 3 days, i am no longer oily. PEOPLE, i am insanely oily every single day of my life after about 5-6 hours of washing and after that its oil and more oil until i finally wash. I am in absolute disbelief that today i hung out with my girlfriend for the whole day,i got home to shower, (this was 13 hours!! since last wash), and I WASNT OILY. My face looked so incredible. I dont post much, and before this week i was never a pill popper. I just saw that my dad had them, im home now from college and started taking them. My diet is the same as it has been for my life, eat anything..anytime. Please someone try this....i honestly can say that these cod liver oil pills are the reason for my oil stopping.I have not changed cleansers, diet, sleep pattern, nothing! Please try, ill keep everyone posted.

Heres the ones i take cause i think all companies are diferent.

My oily friends, you have nothing to loose. This is not a mega dose method or even hard to follow. I just take three a day, breakfast lunch dinner. Somethime i sleep late and take two at lunch. why not try this?

P.S sorry that i sound extremely giddy and hyper, but i am just baffled that this is working.

That's cod oil, totally different from fish oil. The cod oil has a high amount of Vit. A and D in it whereas Fish oil has a high amount of Omega 3 fatty acids. Do not megadose on Cod Liver.

Edit: The link says it has Omega 3 but in all cod liver oils the amount is nominal at best.

You say it's nominal but it isn't. A teaspoon serving of cod liver oil contains 1g of omega 3s not to mention your daily allotment of Vitamin D which is very hard to come by for some people in the northeast during winter. It's one of the best sources of Omega 3s in fact right up there with flax seeds.

I was thinking the exact same thing! I don't know where "blackbirdbeatle" got the idea that the omega 3 content is only "nominal", but I seem to remember that the Dale Alexander brand of cod liver oil (sold by TwinLab) contains even MORE than a gram of EPA and DHA (combined) per teaspoon.

I'll add one caution, though: I would only use a product like that with added antioxidants. Those two fatty acids (EPA and DHA) are the most highly unsaturated ones in existence, and are VERY prone to oxidation. The moment I open a new bottle of cod liver oil, I immediately add 500 mg of BHT and about 750 mg of ascorbyl palmitate. I keep it in the fridge from then on. You can't be too careful! eusa_snooty.gif

I could be mistaken but I was told that while the oil form the fish's liver is high in EPA and DHA, by the time you get it in the cod liver capsule or tonic it's all but destroyed.

The fish oil is used from different parts of the fish than the liver because the fish liver is where the mercury content is highest(Just a side note) and is preserved differently to keep the fatty acids from being destroyed.

I'd just like to clarify it more. Cod liver oil is made cheaply. Unless you cold press it or hand press it the Omega 3 fatty acids will be all but destroyed(Cod liver oil, except for that really expensive stuff is not cold pressed, hence the cheap price). Even if it says cold pressed it may just be mechanically pressed without deliberate heat but there is heat in that process and it does destroy the omegas. Also unless you keep the oil in the fridge the fatty acids will start to be destroyed right away. The Vit A and E in cod liver won't prevent this process. If you've already had the cod oil at room temp for a few weeks now don't even bother putting it in the fridge right now to try and save the poor omega 3's. sad.gif

Do a search function. It has been discussed and discussed some more. The brand I think is the best is Health From the Sun Ultra Omega 3 Fish Oil. It is cold pressed without any heat whatsoever, it has no mercury(Very likely those cod liver capsules do). The cheapest proce is at bodybuilding.com. It's in liquid form and I usually take 1tbsp worth a day(Which is quite a bit like 5g of omega 3). It's just that I do eat quite a bit of omega 6 in a day and I need to get that ratio more balanced. Optimally you want 2:1 ratio of omega 3 to 6 each day(and 1 part omega 9) however the average diet is more like 1:30 omega 3 to 6, which is way out or whack. Or course getting a 2:1 ratio is expensive and damn near impossible so try to aim for something like 1:2 or 1:4 omega 3 to 6.

Of the omega 6 there are good sources like GLA. The rest you want to limit.

Oh ya, if you're a vegan you may in for some tough luck with omega 3. Flax has omega 3 but in many people the omega 3 isn't converted into the useful DHA and EPA(Their bodies can't process it for some reason so the fatty acids in the flax doesn't end up doing what the Omega 3's should). In most plant sources it's not converted but you may be in luck and be able to convert it yourself. With fish oil it is already converted and so can be used right away.

If blackbird is right about how the omega 3's are destroyed then i guess we can conclude the vit a and d are the ones responsible for my decline in oil. I really dont know if all the omegas are destroyed, and i am really am not that interested. I just know its working.Thanks for the info tho.Anyone else gonna give this a shot?

Flax increases the risk of prostate cancer.

Consumerlab has tested 41 omega3 products, none contained mercury.
QUOTE
None of the products contained detectable levels of mercury, nor unsafe levels of PCBs. By comparison, PCBs have been found in several fish including farm-raised salmon and mercury levels in fish generally range from 10 ppb to 1,000 ppb, depending on the fish. Several of the products were additionally tested for dioxins, which can be found in some fish. However, none of these supplements contained unsafe levels of dioxins.

Anyone subscribe to consumerlab? I'd like to see all 41 products tested instead of just the ones they mention on that page.

Fish oil is great. I've been eating salmon for years, and it keeps me looking young. Alaskan brown bears eat tons of salmon, and I've never seen a brown bear with acne.

Hy. How old are you? I'm 18 now. My skin is very very oily. This is the main couse of my acne.
If it really works I'll give it a try.
Is there anything particular I should watch when buying or I just buy cod liver oil? I can't order online.
