So we know what NOT to get in a Fish Oil.
Now what is left? (link)
I googled Fish Oil, and HAL went crazy over here!
Millions and millions of hits. Like this:
"Top Fish Oil Brands at Livestrong
Zone Labs ............ 200 DHA/400 EPA
Omega 3 Plus .............. no listing of amounts!
Xtend Life Omega 3 .................. 280 DHA
Nordic Naturals .................. 800 DHA/400 EPA" (link)
Many of these also have a base of soy bean oil.
1,000 mg capsule = 1 gram of carrier/oil...
One gram of soybean oil has about 567 mg of Omega 6.
Some of them have Vitamin E or D added, too.
Fish oil is so HOT right now -
They even charge you to look at the reviews and comparisons!
Incredible. Top Secret Inside Information for sale.
Some are even selling memberships to Fish Oil Clubs.
Not to mention, the pills are like $60 a month - and up!
Man, did I ever pick the wrong career!
$500 a year for your monthly Fish Oil re-up....
AND just look at all the things Fish Oil is said to cure!
Acne, Alzheimers, Bunions, Depression,
Weight-Loss, Zombie-ism, and many more ailments!
Eh- what can ya, do, eh?
Learn as much as you can about Fish Oil.. for starters.
With OUT for the hype.
Know that small amounts of DHA are no good.
Small amounts of EPA are no good. (link)
In fact, if you want to buy those lesser products,
it might be better to take your money,
and give it to your fave group - for the holidays!
Some people asked me about my own supplements.
Remember - it wasn't that long ago that I lived
on Monster drinks, and Advil, and Trident gum.
Trident is not really from the Ocean...so it doesn't count!
... a pretty strict - and typical LoCarb diet!
The ONLY requirement was that the carbs were low.
Now, I take my health MUCH more seriously.
Still I'm just learning and evolving here!
I'm still in my long-term weight loss phase.
I take a Multi-vitamin...
Alive! - for now. (link) I'm always trying new ones!
This one is pretty good.
I also take an SL B-12. (link)
I take vitamin C at night.
And I take my Omega 3.
I have taken Cod Liver Oil... Carlson's.
240 EPA /300 DHA
There are Primal Kits out there (link)
That have 900 EPA/600 DHA
This one is popular with the CrossFit/Paleo
crowd... but almost too strong for me! (link)
Over 5 grams of EPA/DHA (triglyceride form.)
Nature Made (Walmart)
660 EPA/500 DHA (link)
[fish burps reported]
Vita Cost Fish Oil (link)
360 EPA/240 DHA
[no fish burps reported]
And by the way - I have no affiliation, or endorsment
with anyone ...ever... no group or product.
Just so you know. This is all just my own observation.
click my pic!
HOWEVER, the very best way to get more Omega 3's
in your daily and weekly diet -
is to eat more Salmon and Oily Fish!!
AND limit the Omega 6's.
You can not take enough Omega 3 to cancel out a bad diet!
Keep all PUFA's down to a dull roar -
for the inflammation caused by the excess Omega 6's!
I love it when we are all able to learn together -
as we go! What kind /numbers do you take?
