What are the effects of fish oil on gut flora?
I took some wild salmon oil (pill form), and my bowel movement was an absolute disaster. Fasting and doing some bone broth + sweet potato + massive butter to get back on the train.
Effect of the oil, or gelatin from the pill? Didn't seem like any weird additives were present.
I cannot stand much oil either, or butter for that matter, if it's not consumed with lots of other stuff. Especially eating some 'hard' food before I eat oils, and drown it with at least a normal glass of liquids. Although I have to take 3 1000mg (standard size) pills before my tummy starts to protest, with only 1 it's not very happy but not sad either.
How much did you take?
Describe disaster. If we can't talk about poop, we can't talk about shit. (See what I did thar?)
When I first started taking fish oil I had a little diarrhea that went away with continued use. I highly doubt gelatin caused bowel problems, any other ingredients?

If that does not help, there is a chance you are allergic to fish or on of the other ingrediënts. If you are allergic to fish:
That should eliminate the last part of a possible allergy.
