Q. Fish oil makes me vomit. I am aware of the benefits of omega 3 fatty acids, but I am at a total loss for a source that my body tolerates. I have tried many oral forms and all have the same effect.
Is there a suppository or other route of administration? I can’t even take multi-vitamins that contain fish oil.
A. As far as we can tell, no one sells a fish oil suppository. You’d have to be rather desperate to take it by that route.
You might find that eating fish is a perfectly reasonable alternative to get your beneficial omega 3 fats. A couple of servings a week should be enough.
Other sources of omega 3 fatty acids include walnuts, flax seed and dark green leafy vegetables like spinach or chard. Getting adequate omega 3 fats from plant sources is difficult, however, because our bodies do not use those fatty acids as efficiently as fish oil.
