I use fish oil and I switched to enteric coated fish oil (the Fishol ones that Vitamin Shop as well as Wholefoods sell) after I first saw reports that they absorb better, i.e. superior systemic absorption too. It pretty much eliminates the fish breath issue too. Anyway, I can't really say if it is helping, but it doesn't seem to hurt, and I figure it may have fringe benefits for combatting heart disease, etc.. I've been taking around 6 of them a day, usually with meals but sometimes on an empty stomach with water. They don't get to the colon as far as I know - they are designed to be released in the small intestine, and I reckon this is closer to the goal at least.
