I have been taking the caps for a couple of months. I take about 3 a day and within a few weeks noticed a big difference to my skin. I might have thought it was all in my head but other people noticed too!! I'm a strict vegetarian and don't get enough oil in my diet. Maybe thats why the little bit I started taking helped.
The ones I take are hermatically sealed. I broke one open and tasted it and it doesn't taste off.
