The best times to take omega-3 fish oil supplements
After freezing
If you don’t like the strong odour of omega-3 fish oil supplements, store the capsules in your freezer and take them out when it’s your scheduled time to take the supplement. Freezing the omega-3 fish oil capsules will also make sure the capsules slowly dissolve in your stomach, which will make the unpleasant side effects a lot less noticeable. Just make sure the label of the particular supplement you’re using stipulates that you can freeze the product.

Before meals
Among the worst – yet most common – side effects of taking omega-3 fish oil supplements are burps and belches. To decrease these embarrassing side effects, take the omega-3 fish oil supplement right before eating meals. This will help decrease any stomach upset you may feel from taking the supplement.
 
After a doctor’s visit
Although you can buy omega-3 fish oil supplements over the counter nowadays, you shouldn’t take the supplement until you’ve discussed the potential side effects with your doctor. Remember – omega-3 fish oil is a natural blood thinner and therefore may affect clotting times in your body. Furthermore, too much omega-3 fish oil can heighten your risk of skin bruising and internal bleeding. If you have irregular heart rhythms or severe heart disease, you should avoid taking omega-3 fish oil supplements.
