Product Review: SFH Liquid Fish Oil Concentrate
I’ve mentioned this a few times – but I wanted to get a full bottle down before I wrote a full review – gotta give you guys the full monty. Here’s the full story, when I first sat down with Mike back in February one of the very first questions he asked me was about daily habits, sleep, food, fish oil. I told him I took a shit load (8-10 pills at a time) of the generic Costco, super low EPA+DHA fish oil. Why couldn’t you just take 10 pills and have it be the same as a really high quality one? He told me to upgrade it and take note of the differences. I don’t know the science behind why liquid concentrate is better, but I have read the studies showing that it is. The difference wasn’t immediately noticeable but about 2 weeks in I did start to notice a difference.
Let me be clear – this is fish oil, not some cortisone injection, hyluronic acid or some kind of crazy new treatment. Prior to this switch I had been dealing with a nagging left shoulder injury that I’ve written about several times, it’s gone. I also deal with pretty chronic knee…we’ll say discomfort, which has also improved dramatically. I had pretty much decided that this was the price you pay to be a competitive, hard working athlete; don’t be fooled – some day to day pain is to be expected, but the chronic stuff usually has deeper roots. I’m glad I took Mike’s advice, he’s yet to lead me astray.
Now there are several brands of liquid fish oil, the Roll Royce of them seems to be Nordic Naturals but I know SFH has a pretty strong following as well so it seemed a good place to start. The price was high but not egregious and there was a good array of flavors. Though I can’t say I took chocolate too seriously, I would stick with tangerine, lemon or mint. Before my first bottle was done I ordered 2 more, I never want to be without this stuff, especially since land locked midwestern states have such great seafood! If nothing else – this deserves your 30 day trial, I’d put money on it helping you.
