You don't need any salmon oil. Simply buy wild salmon and eat it (or in cans).

You say you bloat "no matter what you eat." Yet I see a combination of carbs, protein & fat in each meal. Only carbohydrate "digestion" or better phrased as "mis-digestion" perhaps due to SIBO will cause the bloat/gas/distension. You can... (more)

When I used to eat sweet potatoes, they would make me bloat like a balloon. That's my experience, maybe it's yours as well. High starch and fiber can cause your gut to become distended and swell up somewhat.

Surely it's just PMS if you're female and can be ignored and will pass. Also you might just be going to catch a germ, a cold or sore throat so just get to bed very early each night, have naps, drink plenty of water and it may pass. (more)
