Wiley's Finest Easy Swallow Minis (Fish Oil)

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I know a lot of times people want the health benefits of Fish Oil, but they have a hard time swallowing the big softgels, so they don't bother. Not long ago I wrote about Wiley's Finest Liquid Fish Oil (taken by the teaspoon full).  There is an alternative that you may prefer, and that is Wiley's Finest Easy Swallow Minis.



Sized 55% smaller than the traditional 1000mg capsule, these are much easier to swallow.   They are a smaller dose (630mg), so you take two of them, instead of one.  You can take them one at a time to ensure they are easy to swallow.


You can see the size difference between a regular sized Fish Oil capsule and the Wiley's Finest mini. The mini, of course, is on the left. And though it is smaller in size than a traditional capsule, it must be noted that each mini has 30% more Omega-3s per soft gel.  That's a big deal. :)


My husband takes fish oil every single day, and he likes the minis.  I take Fish Oil occasionally, and while I don't mind the larger pill, the smaller one is much more pleasant to swallow.  The directions say to take these with food. I took two this morning with toast. :)


If you're looking for convenience, ease of swallowing, and you don't want to take the liquid form, the Alaskan Wild mini swallows from Wiley's Finest are probably going to be a sure bet.

You can learn more about Wiley's Finest by visiting their website.
You can also follow them on Facebook and/or Twitter.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

I have taken Fish Oil for years. I think must people don't fully realize the benefit of the Omega 3s.. or how their body is deficient without them. I tend to swallow pills two and three at a time, so size isn't the issue for me. However, not all fish is created equal. Pay attention to those Omega 3s!

Jenna Em said...

I remember my mom making my brother and I have a tablespoon of cod liver oil. It was more than dreadful, so I salute this easy swallow method!

Sue @ This Mama Runs for Cupcakes said...

Awesome! I take fish oil daily and it is a huge issue to swallow those horse pills every night...will have to check these out!! Thanks! #SITSBlogging

Sara Bushman said...

I have taken Fish Oil pills before, but the size has always been such a deterrent!! Love this review, definitely going to keep this company in mind when purchasing Fish Oil in the future!!

Good they are small, those big arse ones are hard as heck to swallow

Roni Faida said...

The smaller ones are easier to swallow for sure. I took fish oil in the past but stopped, I don't really know why! #SITSBlogging

Renae of Simple Sequins said...

OhOh. Fish oil. I have a reason I say, 'OhOh". My sweet angel mother thought I was not a healthy child so she spoon fed me cod liver oil until I was about 8 {after my tonsils were removed}. I cringe at any idea of fish oils to this day. I know that most don't have a taste, etc. The idea - uh-uh.

Thank you, Rosey, for your nice comments and the realization that the picture was to be pink and gray in the shirt. I'll have to do an indoor post with that shirt so perhaps the colors will be actual. But thanks anyway. ♥

Stephanie Farley said...

I don't take fish oils but my husband does. His HDL was to low so we are trying to raise his good cholesterol. I had no idea there were mini capsules!

Stacey Gibbon said...

I'm glad these are small. I tried taking Fish Oil Capsules before - but I always gagged on them, when I tried to swallow. Will have to look more into these. Thanks so much for the great review!

Thanks for the information. Love love, Andrew. Bye.

Stacie said...

About the only way I can handle fish pills is to put them in the freezer! :) Looks like these are nice and small at least!

Felicia Franceschelli said...

I'm not sure I could swallow those big pills. I don't take vitamins often but I probably should start!

Theresa Mahoney said...

Wow, those really are much smaller! I love that because I am one who does have a hard time swallowing larger pills/vitamins.

Renee Weatherford said...

I guess I already use the small ones because I've never had a problem with getting them down. I take 3 daily...

Kung Phoo said...

I am not sure i could get these down even though they are mini.. maybe its just the thought of it? very informative post thanks!

Ann Jones said...

I like that they're smaller, the regular new are huge! My husband for whatever reason gets horrible burps from fish oil and can't take them. He tried and it just didn't work :)

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

This would definitely make it easier. I don't like taking huge pills.

alissa apel said...

I have some of those. I don't have a problem taking bigger pills.

Lalia Frolick said...

Love that it's a smaller size! I personally don't take fish oil, I take borage oil capsules. But I have ALWAYS had such a hard time with many pills and capsules because they're HUGE and I end up gagging on them. The size of these capsules is WAY better. Thanks for sharing!

Leslee said...

I haven't taken fish oil, but my husband has. The size of these capsules would definitely make them easier to swallow.

Shauna@Satori Design for Living said...

Good to know there are smaller options out there!

Kas said...

I've always heard that fish oil is good for you. A Smaller sized pill would definitely make me more eager to try it.

Rosemary Nardone said...

thanx for stopping by my blog! I have tried these before, but stopped as not sure I want to take them daily. I read so much that the supplements are not that great. Interesting information however, Thanx !! From SITS tribe.

Sandy Sandmeyer said...

How much more convenient those minis are. I hate trying to swallow those large fish oil capsules. My husband is forever getting them stuck in his pill container that he carries on his keychain.

NewMrsAdventures said...

Being someone who does not like swallowing those giant pills, this is great to know! Thanks for sharing!

Masshole Mommy said...

I hear all sorts of good things about taking fish oil and I love that these are smaller and easier to swallow.

ray_garf_kohler@yahoo.com said...

My hubby encourages me to take fish oil on a regular basis. I am taking the generic kind.

MikiHope said...

I am allergic to iodine (which fish sometimes contains naturally) and can not get large size pills down my throat. As a result I stopped taking fish oil although I probably need it desperately! At least these are small enough for me to swallow and if I take only one pill maybe I won't get all itchy (which is what iodine does to me)

menopausal mama said...

Fish is awesome for you---I take it every day!

Mama to 5 said...

I have heard great things about fish oil and the health benefits.

Celebrity VIP Lounge said...

Wow, those are some big pills but I suppose if they are good for me!

Binky said...

I take fish oil and it does seem to have helped me.

Heather Jones said...

Those omega threes are so important! I definitely like the smaller size!

Betty Taylor said...

I haven't taken fish oil for a while, but I might have to try those little ones. I hate swallowing those huge ones.

bxcrochet said...

I find it hard to swallow my vitamins. I love how much smaller it is.

Elisebet F said...

I'm happy to see this! I wish more vitamin brands took the hint. I have a terrible gag reflex and have trouble swallowing pills.

Beth said...

I'm a huge fan of fish oil! Regular pills are so difficult to swallow, so this looks like a great product.

Tough Cookie Mommy said...

My husband took fish oil every day when he was a kid and he swears that it kept him from getting sick.

Fam Guide said...

i love the idea of mini pills. I have a very hard time not gagging on pills and this sounds very positive.

ReviewsSheROTE Pamela R said...

I don't take fish oil...but if I ever have too I'll hunt down the mini's =D

Fit Armadillo said...

Great review-thanks!

Mary said...

May have to give these a try. My husband is really pickey so I will try anthing to get him to take fish oil.

valmg said...

I've never taken fish oil, but understand it's supposed to be very beneficial. I'd have to go with the smaller one, I can't manage large pills.

Amanda Taylor said...

Those are small! Why do some companies make such big pills!

Cococute Manaloto said...

This are good - the size is really perfect

Petro Neagu said...

I love fish oil, I take one every day. But yes, their size is quite hard to put up with so these minis are just what I need. Thanks for the tip.

Kisa 'Yuki' J. said...

I really should get into taking fish oil gain. The size of these is perfect for me since I have a hard time swallowing things.

Maddi'sMommy said...

I've heard such good things about fish oil and omega oils.

Elise said...

These look really great. I keep falling off the fish oil wagon because I hate taking the great big gel caps.

Kristi Maloney said...

It's nice to know that Wiley's has a smaller fish oil pill like this. I do take fish oil and they are the big ones. I don't have trouble with them fortunately.

Vinma said...

Fish Oil is great for health- I take it in the capsule form everyday. But the one I take is a bit big. it is a bit hard to swallow. Wiley's sounds great!

Sarah said...

Oooh, those are little; nice! I take the big honking ones and sometimes they just feel like they get stuck in your throat. May have to check this out.

Nicole Adkisson said...

That is a noticable size difference! I hate the big softgels. Might have to try these. Although even when it's a pill I still feel like there is a small after taste with fish oil.

Anonymous said...

I've heard that fish oil is great for you, but I've never even tried it! Perhaps I need to...

Colette S said...

I have a hard time with any pill, so I'm always delighted to learn of a mini pill !

~ Noelle said...

that is great they make a mini gel one - for those that aren't big on taking them, this is a big deal

Mistee Dawn said...

They definitely look much easier to swallow. Thanks for the info.

Emily Stephens said...

These look so much easy to swallow - I have such a tough time with the larger pills. Wiley's sound fabulous!

Lady Lilith said...

Nice. I like that they come so small. I hate swallowing such large pills.

Pam said...

I have heard so much about the benefits of fish oil, but I have a hard time getting my kids and husband to take it in the traditional form. I bet these would be good for my family.

Ave T said...

I remember that as a kid, I really hated those big capsules. It's good to know, that there is a smaller version available now.

Angel said...

Nice review. :) We use algae oil and flax seeds to get the omega 3s straight from the source.

Lawna Noe said...

I really have a hard time taking big pills. I think these smaller ones are a great alternative.

Sarah-Louise Bailey said...

I've heard a lot about how good fish oil is meant to be - they also seem to be so big so its nice to see these are a lot smaller in size. x

Anonymous said...

Finally they are considering the fact that we can not swallow such huge pills. Fish oil is so good for so many things, this will make it a lot easier to take.

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

I don't have a problem swallowing pills no matter how horse-gigantic they are. But it's always nicer when they're small. I used to take fish oil and kinda forgot. I need to do that again.

Jennifer Zimmerman said...

I can usually handle swallowing larger pills, but I don't like it. I would definitely prefer these.

Shalunya TheChronicBeauty said...

I have recently begun taking Fish Oil but I don't mind the bigger pills. I understand the benefits of taking Fish Oil are numerous. Thanks for sharing this post!

Mommy 2 J.A.M. said...

I love fish oils they are so good for you. I like that they are easy to swallow as some are so big and hard to get down. Thank you so much for sharing.

Ashley Wintters said...

The smaller the pill the better in my opinion! I do like what the fish oil does for you, but every pill I've ever found has a horrid smell!

becca said...

i have never taken fish oil before but i heard it really good for you so may have to check into if the doctor says i can

Nikki said...

I need to take fish oil more often. I love that these are tiny, so much easier to get down!

Eliz Frank said...

This a fantastic product and I take it every day. I love that that contents are pure. Its pricey but worth it.

Melanie said...

Thanks for sharing; I'm suppose to take fish oil but the pulls always drive me crazy... thanks for sharing about a smaller version.. sooo will have to check it out..super excited

Cheap Is The *New* Classy said...

I used to take Fish Oil but I stopped because it was so hard to swallow. I might have to try these out. :)

Courtney Pies said...

I definitely would like this smaller size of fish oil capsuels. I have been wanting to start taking fish oil supplements, so I will have to try these ones out!

momo said...

(Wiley's Finest Easy Swallow Minis (Fish Oil) I am going to try these the next time I go to buy fish oil pills again. The bottle I have right now are like hoarse pills and they leave that unwanted fishy taste in your mouth also.

ReDo It Yourself Inspirations said...

I'm so glad you shared this. The brand I have are large enough to dose a cow. Thank you!

(Terry) My Journey With Candida said...

My Hubs just started taking Omega supplements. I have been doing them for a long time. Haven't tried Wileys yet.

Henrietta said...

I have a really hard time swallowing pills so it's nice to know that these come in a mini, hubby and I really should start taking fish oil!
