Coconut Oil Omega 3 6 Ratio
Doc wants me to take three 300mg of krill oil daily after my omega 3 test came back. I had been taking 1 krill plus a fish oil daily. Is this unusual?
EPA ; DHA: Fish oil and krill oil have 2 major components: epa and dha. Generally people need at least 1-2 grams of epa, and at least 500 mg dha daily. The preparations you were using may not have delivered this much of each component in the capsules you were taking, so you needed more. Please know that if you eat wild alaskan salmon, sardines, etc at least twice each week, you may not need supplements. ...Read more

Bad idea: The commercial formulas are the product of more than 60 years of lab based research and nothing you can replicate with your well meaning attempts.

What's a difference between fish oil capsules and omega 3-6-9 capsules? Which ones should I take as a diabetic?
Krill oil and fish oil are the new snake oil, both are high in omega 3 fatty acids which are extremely fragile. Omega 3 fish oils reduce triglycerides by impairing the liver's ablility to make them. However the oxidative stress caused by fish oil actually raises LDL cholesterol.
Some day we may use the phrase "this is just more fish /krill oil" or "here comes the fish/krill oil salesman". ...Read more
EPA: We all need two essential fatty acids in our diet but they have to be processed in the body to produce important metabolites that play a part in inflammation. Fish oil provides epa (eicosapentoic acid) that "dodges" the processing mechanism, thus providing a "ready made" metabolite that acts as an anti-inflammatory. This is very complex chemistry and is the simplest explanation that I can offer. ...Read more
Much debated: There are many claims regarding the beneficial effects of fish oils, but there are few randomized blinded clinical trials testing these observational claims. Fish oils lower triglycerides, and are indicated to do so, so as to prevent pancreatitis, however no studies support this recommendation. At low dose they may have cardiovascular benefits, but recent data is less compelling than older data. ...Read more
OMEGA-3: At least 300 to 600mg./ day.Get a more detailed answer ›
Possibly: Fish oil is fat. Fat contains calories. Caloric intake causes weight gain. So, yes, it's possible. Although not likely from a single overdose. The label on the fish oil bottle should tell you how many calories are in a capsule (or 2 capsules) depending on the recommended dose. There is no evidence to show mega-. ...Read more

Several good but...: About 2 grams /day. One should choose a fish oil supplement wisely as some brands are much better than others- make sure it's purified ; is in the "true triglyceride" form. My favorites are nordic naturals and omegavail by designs for health. See http://bit.

I'm trying to make my butt bigger does fish oil work? I hered if you rub fish oil like omega 3 around your butt would grow is this true?
I am not aware of this as an effective treatment to enhance the rear end.
Generally you would need to start trying to build the gluteal muscle (the largest muscle in the body) with exercise. It can respond quickly to focused activity.
Or consider consulting a plastic surgeon to discuss surgical options.
Best of luck to you.

I have costochrondritis. Does Omega-3 oil truly help lower the body's inflammatory response or is it a myth. If not, how much should I take daily?
Omega 3: Some studies claim an effect. In one study patients with back pain took a preparation and it seemed to help reduce needs for NSAIDs, but that was in that study. Any new medication and dose should be discussed with your PCP. But in that study they took 1200 mg, but the exact brand/? I don't know. Many result are VERY dependent upon which one you take.
