Hey i heard that omega 3, flax seed oil, or fish oil can help with some of the symptoms or just make going to the bathroom less painful...anyone heard of this? my twin who has uc used to take it but said she burped up fish oil all the time and didnt notice a difference...i started taking omega 3 only for about a week and just kinda stopped..i didnt know if it was doing anything and was afraid of burping it up haha...it also said to take 3 pills a day and i was only taking 1 so maybe i should have taken more...so im thinking maybe i should start taking it again....any thoughts???

i've found that it helps me. put some food down behind the pill if you're worried about burping up a fishy taste. i've never burped up the fish oil itself. a fishy tasting burp really isn't that bad, just unpleasant for a second.

If you drink plenty of water with it (as you should with any pills) you shouldn't have issues with the fishy burps.

Hi there,

I take two Omega 3 capsule every day, I have definitley noticed a benefit since taking them.  Make sure you get a capsule that is "Enteric" coated, this means they pass through the stomach before they dissolve so you don't get the fishy tasting burps, it also makes sure that the oil has the best chance of reaching your colon.

You know what's funny...in the 2008 summer CCFC journal I recieved today they say research shows taking omega 3 has no benefit to IBD inflammation...I take omegas 3-6-9 myself and will continue to do so because as far as I'm concerned, the proof is in the pudding, not what tests on mice show, afterall we are not mice so maybe for people taking omega 3 is different when it comes to helping with inflammation in the intestines.
