What is the best fish oil out there? Is it the one the Weston Price foundation recommends? I am afraid I can't deal with fermented foods at the moment. If you found one particular brand superior to others, please recommend. Also, if there is... (more)

I'm pretty sure there are a few threads here asking almost the exact same question... I do not worry too much about brands, but recommend krill oil with astaxanthin and phosolipids.

I'm not too familiar with omega-3 as an oil, because I take them in the liquid gel tablets 3x a day. I think some people take the oil straight up in a spoon (or something like that). I'm not sure about the absorption effectiveness of putting it on... (more)

How much omega 3 do you lose if you drain all that water/oil the fish is packed in?

You probably lose some things in addition to omega 3s, too, since the fish is cooked in the liquid in the canning process. Amino acids, minerals, vitamins. There's stuff in it. Can we put a number to it? No. Is it significant? Depends on what you... (more)

Costco sells Wild Planet sardines packed in EVOO for a very good price (around $9.99 for a six pack). The can is BPA free. Probably the most reasonable way to get a high omega 3 fish to eat. Mash the sardines with avocado for a great treat. (more)

The fish-guy at Whole Foods today told me to check out their website where they have all kinds of interesting data on fat ratios of their farmed salmon, and how they are the same as wild. I took a look but didn't find what he was mentioning. I... (more)

What are the best eggs to buy? I know pastures and bug fed are ideal according to PaleoApproved. This raises the omega 3 ratio. Can't find bug fed eggs in NYC. But flaxseed fed pastured also have high omega 3. Discuss.

Anyone know how many grams of o3 are in a cut of grass-fed ribeye? I'm trying to adjust my omega 3 intake from fish oil on days where I eat the steaks. I already adjust it when I eat fish.

The benefit of grass-fed beef is that the ratio of o3 to o6 is better, not that there's a lot of o3 (compared to oily fish). The WAPF folks say: One of the claims made for grass-fed beef is that the fat from grass-fed animals is much... (more)

When your diet mainly consists of grain fed meats containing omega 6, what can you do to counteract the effects and add enough omega 3's to make a healthy ratio?
