Age of Fish Oil Capsules
Fish oil capsules oxidise where oxygen in the air decomposes the oil causing it to become rancid. Storing capsules in a cool, dry and dark place can increase their life but be sure to check the use by date and if it smells rancid, discard the container.

So, is Fish Oil Good for You?
The list of health benefits derived from fish oil is still impressive. When taken as a ‘treatment’ for symptoms of a disorder, consumers can gauge for themselves if fish oil is effective or not. When it comes to taking supplements as a prevention of disease, it’s more difficult to determine the effectiveness. Only you and your doctor can decide if fish oil is a worthwhile supplement. As with all things health-related, it’s always best seek professional advice from your own GP before taking any supplements.
