When suggesting consuming 3 grams of fish oil does this refer to the total amount of oil in the pills or the amount of omega 3’s in the pills? ((ex. 3 pills containing 1 gram of total oil (not neccesarily all omega 3’s) or 10 - 1 gram pills with each pill containing DHA 120 and EPA 180))
3g is a good dose I agree. You should notice a reduction in inflamation and possibly a bit of leaning up. But this of course depends upon your current status.
Fish oil is something that I have mixed feeling on when recommending one. Some seem very economical but with the extreme dangers today with mercury poisoning, well it may not be worth it saving $5-10 per month. Personally I spend the extra cash on products that have been varified and we know are clean. Just my .02
That’s who I use, Sears. I know of at least three individuals who have gotten mercury poisoning from canned tuna alone. Downing fishh oil can be even more risky if the mercury has not been taken care of. So instead of preventing disease you end up slowly killing yourself.
I use the Sear’s Lab oil as well. I agree with ccardill that something that fundamental is worth the long term investment. It’s better to invest in a few basic high quality supplements than spending a fortune a several marginal ones.
Well I’m working on making food choices as cheap as possible without sacrificing too much in quality, maybe I’m not doing a good job. And living in NYC doesn’t leave much room for error in terms of the money dept.
Will be cheaper than the Barry Sears product but not as effective. Personally I use the Sears product (six g/day) and Herbal Actives Borage oil (312 mg/1 gram capsule). Another extremely concentrated fish oil product is made by OmegaBrite (omegabrite.com), roughly 90% EPA/DHA.
