How Much Omega 3 Mg Needed
Omega 3: According to the fda, it is safe to take up to 3, 000mg of omega 3 (dpa and epa) per day. It’s not the same as 3, 000mg of fish oil. A 1, 000mg fish oil usually contains about 300-400mg of omega 3 (dpa and epa). One capsule of prescription omega 3 Lovaza 1, 000mg contains the total of 840mg of omega 3 (465mg of epa and 375mg of dha). The daily dose for Lovaza is 4 caps/day or 3, 360mg of omega 3/day. ...Read more
Generally 1g per day: For the general patient population 1 gram per day of an omega 3 fatty acid fish oil supplement would be sufficient to reduce cardiovascular risks. The supplement should contain EPA and DHA. For patients with high triglyceride levels of over 500 mg/dL, we would recommend prescription Lovaza, 4 grams per day. ...Read more

Can I take 5 tablets omega 3 daily for 3 months, each contains 60mg dha and 90mg epa and 150mg omega3?I Suffer depression.
How much gap betwen antacid & B12 sublingual 1500mcg. can we take multivit, calcium carb(500mg) same time as B12 supp? how much gap for vit c & b12?
Wouldn't take: antacid at the same time you are taking your supplements b/c you are reducing UR stomach acidity further that you need that to digest or help your MVI (multivitamin) get absorbed better. B12 can be taken alone sublingual. It's not digested. You can take it along with your MVI (multivitamin), and Vitamin C. Space your calcium tablet separately as it can act like an antacid itself (Tums?) Greens can interfere with Ca absorption. ...Read more
Vitamin C: The quality of vitamin c tablets (and powder) is rather standard. The key thing to keep in mind is that vitamin c has a half-life of about 12 hours so no matter how much you take it will leave your body in that amount of time. Thus, it's best to take vitamin c twice daily, A.M. And P.M. Hope this helps. 500 to One K mg each time. ...Read more
Varies on dose & : Diet. Just as takes time for cholesterol to build up, takes time for omega-3 to help lower blood lipids. Generally at least 2-3 grams (2000-3000 mg) per day are needed to be effective. Enteric-coated caps help prevent "fish burp". Diet of good fats (polyunsaturated, no trans or saturated) & low glycemic index carbs added to lean protein, fruits & veggies help. Exercise is beneficial, too. ...Read more

NotFish; 2Omega3Fats: Evidence is mostly 1 (epa), possibly a 2nd (dha), omega 3 fatty acid from phytoplankton; harvested from fish (easier/?$), along with whatever else. About 1, 000 mg/day of epa tends to lower LDL particle concentrations ; in trials have ?ed death rates ~12-15%. >4, 000 mg/day of epa (less so epa+dha), tends to ? blood triglyceride fat concentrations (far more effective: stop all sugars ; most carbs). ...Read more
Omega 3: Dose of Omega 3 depends on what you are using it for. If not on a blood thinner a typical does is 2 1000 mg caps daily for general health. Check w/your doctor. If you are lowering triglycerides it depends on the level of the triglycerides. If used as an anti-inflammatory check w/doc but one MAY need 2 - 3 X the average dose. Quality is important. Nordic Naturals is a good brand. Peace. ...Read more
I take amlodipine 5mg Atenolol 50 mg daily. Vitamin D2 50,000 units capsules for 12 weeks for Vitamin Def 25. Can I take Mag 07 and Liver Rescue 5+?
Would avoid: Mag07 and Liver Rescue are self-described laxatives and herbal supplements. As with all herbal products, they are not regulated for safety, purity & effectiveness. I wouldn't recommend them for anybody largely because of lack of effectiveness vs danger. I would be especially careful to avoid laxative-based supplements if I were taking meds that lower blood pressure as you are. Good luck! ...Read more
