I have had a severe fish/seafood allergy my entire life! It sucks. Basically, I've been severely Omega-3 deficient since birth. I'm trying to correct some hormonal imbalances and optimize my omega 3:6 ratios but I'm not sure the best way to go... (more)
I am looking for a site that sells really good antarctic krill oil particularly in bulk so I can get the lowest price, any suggestions?
While I'm not too worried about my diet / supplements, I am wondering if I can better optimize it. Right now, I supplement with Nutrasea 500mg EPA / 1,000mg DHA. In these studies, it seems that DHA might have a greater link than... (more)
I know most tribal populations had access to fish, some of which have 2000 dha/epa every 6 ounces. Most fish oils only give 200-300 per caplet, i'd have to take up to 9 caplets to get near those numbers. My question is, why are people saying to... (more)
I know getting vitamins/minerals from food is best, which I try to do. But I also know I don't have a "perfect" diet and supplements may benefit me. Basically I am undecided on whether I should take a multivitamin. In the past I have always but... (more)
Study shows that DHA increases the permeability of tight junctions in the gut. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12591548 I know you always hear contradicting things: too much salt, not enough salt, too hard of exercising, not hard enough. But... (more)

Americans are known for having the world's most expensive urine due to the many supplements we take on a regular basis. Since going paleo, I have drastically cut down on my vitamin and mineral supplements due to not needing them with such an... (more)
I've noticed that a lot of people keep saying that we're poor converters of ALA to EPA and DHA, so we should get our omega 3s from meat and fish. The latter is true, but grass fed beef contains ALA, not EPA and DHA. ALA is the same fat in... (more)
Hello, There are many sources which state the n-3 fat in pastured beef is DHA/EPA rather than ALA. E.g. from KGH: "DHA/EPA are found in pastured butter, beef and lamb, and fatty fish." There is No Such Thing as a Macronutrient Part I -... (more)
So my wife was given some supplements from the nurse (trial boxes) and told that she should take these and stop taking any regular DHA supplementation (I know she possibly needs the folic acid, but that's a separate discussion). Anyhow the... (more)
I know that Omega 3s are essential fatty acids and you need to supplement with fish oil. I Googled omega 3s and Wikipedia states that ALA (Alpha linolenic acid) is also an essential fatty acid. I know that ALA is the short chain fatty acid... (more)
Are polyunsaturated fats necessary in our diet at all? I am having difficulty researching this and sorting through all of the BS which gets planted on all of the pages of results. I am sorry if this is a dumb question LOL but I have been so busy... (more)
My new bottle of "Omega 3 Liquid" arrived today, which totals out per 5ml: 825mg EPA / 550mg DHA. Earlier today just after lunch I didn't have a teaspoon at hand so just filled up the bottle cap and slurped it down. Nice! Well if you like oily... (more)
Hey All, I was just wondering what the latest verdict on this fish oil is. I know a while ago, they used to list the combined EPA and DHA levels, and Robb Wolf himself said that he had done some research and found their brand to be pretty solid.... (more)
Kirkland brand's not good anymore. Cheaped out, ultra low on the DHA/EPA, ultra high on the misc other components. They've got others there though like the wild salmon one that's better
I tend to do a good amount of fishing, so I've been trying to figure out the Omega-3/EPA and DHA levels for freshwater fish. Outside of Salmon (difficult to get in the Midwest), Walleye and Perch are my favorite fish to eat. I was somewhat shocked... (more)
I am trying to find out new ways to obtain DHA in my diet. I know some algae are an excellent source but I do not know which algae are in fact a good source, in particular which edible algae since I would like to eat it, rather than supplementing.... (more)
Currently I take 1 tablespoon of Carlson's cod liver oil each day. Before I buy more, I just wanted to take a survey on what everyone takes. I know I need a lot of DHA because I'm following the AI protocol. I listened to the Healthy Skeptic's... (more)
I hear algae DHA being recommended as a pure form of DHA by various paleo gurus, but when I went to the store to buy some I noticed that its packed in sunflower oil and soy. So is there a specific brand to buy?
Try it in liquid form. Deva, O-Mega Zen, and Dr. Fuhrman offer it.
A few years ago when I was still veg*n but transitioning to paleo I started taking flax seed oil. One effect it had was that my gums stopped bleeding. After reading about some negative effects of lignans and the fact that DHA is the more usable... (more)
