My answer is going to be purely anecdotal, but maybe it'll give you some pointers.Since reading here and there that the desired ratio of Omega-6:Omega-3 for optimal health is argued to be 1:1, I tried yesterday to eat a diet vastly superior in... (more)

This (older) newspaper article says not much of the omega-3 was lost in water packed fish, more in oil packed fish since the omega-3 is oil soluable and more leeched out into the oil used in canning. (more)

danno, unfortunately, the krill oil business is almost a monopoly. There is one firm in Canada that effectively is the only mass volume producer, and all of the name brands you buy in a store are in fact just relabeling that one company's oil.... (more)

A good fraction of it is ALA, the omega-3 not given enough credit by paleo folks (because it's the plant-sourced omega-3).

It's harder to imbalance omega-6s and omega-3s when you're not consuming tons of extracted vegetable oils daily. Meat, veggies, olive or coconut oils... You'd be hard pressed to get worse than 10:1 o6:3. If it's a whole food, I don't think we... (more)

When people talk about their omega-6 to omega-3 ratio, are they comparing recommended percentages (RDA?) of each, or the actual grams? In other words, would a 1:1 ratio equate to, say, 3g of omega-6 and 3g of omega-3? Sorry if this is a stupid... (more)

Your omega-6:omega-3 ratio should be measured in grams, not RDA. Also, there are three forms of omega-3: EPA, DHA, and ALA. For various reasons, EPA and DHA are more beneficial than ALA, so what really matters is your ratio of omega-6 to EPA and... (more)
