Omega-3 is helpful in lowering triglycerides and may have beneficial effects on the heart, may increase level of vitamin a and d; however the level of vitamin a may become too high if you consume too much of fish oil. So do it with moderation, as always consult your doctor. ...Read more

Can i start taking fish oil or do I have to ask my doctor first? Which brand is the best to help with depression. Is nature maid fish oil a good one?

Can i start taking fish oil or do I have to ask my doctor first? Which brand is the best to help with depression. Is nature maid fish oil a good one?

OK to start but also: Fish oil is perfectly safe; you don't have to ask your doc but should tell him or her. Fish oil can improve results when added to drugs for depression but it's not yet clear how much it helps depression by itself. Choose a brand that's purified-nature made is, so it's ok, but one that is also esterified, like nordic naturals, may be better absorbed. While fish oil can help, see comment for more:. ...Read more

Both has omega 3: Omega 3 is an essential fatty acid that our body needs and it's a healthy fat. Both fish oil and cod live oil has omega 3, however cod liver oil has additional Vit A and D.

It depends: No universal answer; it depends on your diet and genetics. No sure what type of omega 3 ; 6 is in that one, but salmon oil has epa ; dha.

Can I take vitamin A (from fish liver oil) and vitamin d3 together? If so will it help with acne?

Can I take vitamin A (from fish liver oil) and vitamin d3 together? If so will it help with acne?

Acne Treatment: I understand your concern about Acne. Some patients have had good results with fish liver oil and Vitamin d, possibly due to Omega-3 fatty acids in fish. There are no clinical research documenting the benefit. Acne can become worse due to hormones, stress, carbohydrate-rich foods —bread, bagels and chips, and exposure to sun. See a Dermatologist for treatment. See a Psychiatrist for stress. ...Read more
