We totally get it, fish burps are not ideal. With a lot of multivitamins on the market, burping after taking multivitamins is a sign that the capsule has started to break open and release its contents. It can be even more noticeable if the vitamin has started dissolving in the stomach, before it hits the digestive tract. If you’re wondering “why do my burps taste like fish?” with omega-3 oils specifically, picture a bottle of salad dressing before you shake it up: the oil and water don't mix. So any oil released from the vitamin in the stomach will float to the top, triggering a burp-back response.
But our capsule works a little differently. Ritual’s capsule is designed to dissolve later in the small intestine, an ideal place to absorb nutrients. That means that you may experience less burping—especially if you’re used to taking softgels, which may dissolve earlier.*
There are also some other factors that might make you more prone to burping, like low stomach acid or even the amount of water you drink when taking vitamins. Either way, fish burps aren’t exactly pleasant. The good news is that there are some easy workarounds to help.*
