You Like Fish Burps?: Better to split them up. Better absorbed with food. If you don't eat three meals a day then take two with one meal and one with another. but in this case food will help. Or, take the third with a healthy snack. Taking all three at once won't hurt but you want to get your money's worth, right? Also, if you eat some salmon that day, you can skip the supplement. The "real" thing is always better ...Read more

Will taking omega-3 supplements help prevent progression of dry amd to wet amd?

Maybe: The areds 2 study conducted by the nih/nei recently reported that there was no benefit in slowing amd to taking 840mg of dha with 270 mg of epa over a three year period. However, it was also found that patients who had the highest blood levels of epa/dha also had the lowest risk of developing wet amd. More work is needed in light of the high levels of fish oil that are frequently consumed. ...Read more

It is usefull: Increased intake of epa and dha has been shown to prevent pre-term labor and delivery, lower the risk of pre-eclampsia and may increase birth weight. Omega-3 deficiency also increases the mother’s risk for depression. Babies born to mothers who had higher blood levels of dha scored better on the attention tests until 6 months of age, visual learning in older babies at 1 year and 18 months. ...Read more

None: A large multi-center double-blind clinical study performed by the nih recently competed, and showed that outcomes on vascular disease were not improved on omega-3's. The claim has been made that many such theoretical treatments of the vascular system will improve every function in the body, due to increased perfusion. The best bet is to eat lots of fresh fruits and green vegetables, and exercise. ...Read more

Does omega 3 fatty acid supplements helps prevents acne for people taking vegetarian  diet.

No: The last three real human studies of omega-threes for atherosclerosis / lipid problems showed no benefit. The vegetarian / natural foods people write about this-and-that benefiting this-and-that without needing any real basis, and there's an anecdotal peer-reviewed article, but nothing solid. Acne's treatable by 21st century medicine and if you need us mainstream physicians, we're here for you. ...Read more
