Huh, interesting that you say that b/c this week I'm switching from my reg. fish oil caps to Cod liver oil so I can get the Vit D benefits as well as the Omegas!!!

Wow! really! Yes, it is easily available online from reputable brands.

Oh, I also take Emergen-C (1000mg Vit C), Ashwaganda, Quercetin, B6/niacinamide, Multi, & Cal/Mag/Zinc.

do fish oil capsules' quality depend on the brand or are they all the same?

Yes, depends on the brand. Consumer reports -or something equivalent- did a study on the *best* brands. If you do a search, I don't have a link, you should be able to come up with it. They checked for taste (some leave you w/ a "fish burp" aftertaste ), accurate levels (for what they were reporting they had), & I think Mercury or other contaminants.

Just make sure it says "molecularly distilled." That is how fish oil is processed to remove both the "fishy taste" and heavy metal contaminants. If it says "moelcularly distilled" it's good to take, Nordic Naturals is one brand that's fairly popular and has a good product. All brands are about the same; you might have a preference from where the fish oil is coming from though so check and read the label. Cold water fish could mean oil from sardines, there's also salmon oil too among others.

I take:

- Inner Health Plus Capsules everyday (they have helped my immune system so much!!)
- Vitamin C when I have a cold
- Vitamin E very very rarely if I get cramps in my feet

I started the Cod Liver Oil instead of the fish oil caps.... ...... It's cherry flavor too. I was never bothered by *fish burps* that some ppl get w/ the caps but, **sorry** these DO bother me. Can I cut the taste further with some lemon? Take it before bed instead? Mix it with Emergen-C? Hold my nose?????

serenity*now, I take cod liver oil as well, but the one I have is lemon flavored and tastes amaaazing! Carlson Labs makes the best one. You should look it up!
I also take flaxseed oil, zinc, and sometimes emergen-c.

I recently started taking these drugstore housebrand "multi-all in one" tablets. I don't feel much difference, really. Although I used to be sick a lot, due my lack of proper sleep (already taking Valerian for that, but it ain't doing ****).

Does anyone actually know how much is an overdose of vitamins? I thought it was like 500% of the daily dose? I heard taking vitamin pills isn't really good. That you can overdose vitamin A really easily?

You have to take care in what you take your iron vitamin with -- the best absorption of iron is on an empty stomach with vitamin C.

Anemia could also be caused by a B12 deficiency, so taking that might help as well.

^^ Really, I heard you weren't supposed to take it on an empty stomach? I'll definitely consider the B-vitamins...I hardly eat any vegetables so that's probably a big problem. Thanks for the advice
