Re: Omega 3 Fish Oil Regimen??

Just eat a lot of eggs. The 5 on the day prior was an outlier, however.

I found this reassuring:

"It is not always easy to know whether dietary supplements are safe and if their content is reliable. CR’s test results were reassuring: All fish-oil pills tested contained roughly as much EPA and DHA, the active ingredients in fish oil, as their labels promised. None showed evidence of spoilage, and none contained a significant amount of mercury, PCBs, or dioxin. CR found no significant differences in the quality or purity of these supplements. Therefore, consumers can choose them based on price."

It agrees with what I've heard, that something about the refining of the oil actually
removes much of the mercury. Could this be a rare case where the supplement is
more healthful than the whole food ?

One of the pages I read while looking for fish oil reviews indicated that this was the case - taking the caps is the better approach.

Agree. I would rather eat fish than pills. Salmon and Tuna are my favorite.

Re: Omega 3 Fish Oil Regimen??

I look at the capsules, as a nearly daily regimine, as a correction of my (our) out of whack diet. The predominance of grain products and grain fed animals floods us with omega 6's. Farm raised salmon and other "feed-lot" fish are fed a grain heavy diet as well and do not have the same fat profile as wild fish.
