Yes, I do take fish oil, in the form of krill and some salmon oil (less than 2g/day), but I also eat wildcaught fish 1-2x a week (salmon or sardines), and the occasional cod liver with its oil. The big danger with fish oil in capsules is of... (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)

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)

The best brand is called "decrease your omega 6 (so you don't overload on PUFAs) and consume shellfish instead." It doesn't exactly roll of the tongue like "Nordic Naturals" or "Eskimo-3" do, but don't let the name fool you- it's a great brand... (more)
