"I have no tears whatsoever, but these give my eyes moisture, and my eyes are not very dry anymore at all. it all depends on the weather. I do take two a day though. but its worth it. Nothing worse than dry scratchy hurting eyes. these have been a life saver for me. well worth the money."
"Since MegaRed was referred to me to lower my cholesterol, I have been taking it every day. My cholesterol has been great and I have been regular every day since. That is also an added plus to this med."
Pros: small size makes it easy to swallow, no fishy taste
Cons: there are absolutely no cons that i can see!
"I don't like regular fish oil because I have fish burps for the rest of the day after I finally get the huge softgels down. MegaRed is so concentrated that you only have to take one small softgel and they are easy to swallow. Costco-size is cheaper than a lesser size on other websites and in stores."
Pros: healthy and it really works on lowering cholestrol, it actually taste really good., i'm a non seafood lover and love mega red
Cons: refrigerate to keep fresh, if it smells return it; maybe rancid
"I bought this product for my husband who at the time had high cholestrol count of 240 and his doctor wanted to put him on Lipitor. We wanted a healthy alternative and decided against Lipitor and tried Mega Red. He was recently tested after 30 days of using this product and we are happy to say his count is now at 204. This is by only taking the product. No change to his diet or exercise. I myself can not stand the smell or taste of fish and take this product everyday with no problem. It has a pleasant non-fish taste to it and NO BURPS! Thank you Mega Red."
"This is part of my daily regiman to take one of these plus a multi-vitiman. I like the no "burp" fish taste and my Dr. says my blood work is perfect at age 65. Even though I eat meat and dairy products daily."
"being that I can't stand taking regular fish oil, this was recommended to me. It's 1 a day, which is easy, and has NO aftertaste whatsoever. My cholesterol numbers have improved, too. Love that Costco offers $5 off coupons!"
"I've been taking these for a month. I have NEVER experienced any after taste at all. Not even an essence of that dreaded "fishy burp" - nothing. They have never upset my stomach. They are super tiny, and oh so easy to swallow! I don't know what smell people are referring to - I guess they fixed that problem. They don't stink to me at all.
I was looking for an algae derived Omega-3, for environmental reasons (plus mercury levels, and after taste) - but couldn't find one at Costco. This was a good alternative. Tiny krill don't have the mercury levels like large fish & they are not in danger of being overfished (though again, I would prefer the algal which can be grown in a controlled environment).
I'm really curious to see if my cholesterol dropped - I'll take my levels after I complete the bottle. I was hoping these would help reduce my monthly girl cramps... but I didn't notice a difference yet. I was only on these for a week at that time, though... so maybe next month will be better!
Just make sure you don't have shellfish allergies (friendly reminder).
I'll update the review as I learn more... but so far so good!"
"I'm on my third bottle and a really like it so far. It's small, making it easy to swallow. And it doesn't smell or taste like fish (I hate seafood). I'd like to think it's making me healthier, but don't have any tests or numbers to prove it. Give it a try!"
"Have used this product for about 3+ years upon suggestion from my docter and always purchase from the most reliable and friendly store Costco. Previously used fish oil which had an aftertaste and were frighteningly huge to swallow. My wife also uses Mega Red too. My 4 star rating was because I am not qualified to know if they are beneficial or not. I would otherwise give Mega Red a five star rating."
"This product said that it provided omega-3 oil without any fishy aftertaste and it does. It actually has a very pleasant odor. I quit taking fish oil pills because they were very unpleasant, this product isn't."
