1 gm of krill oil (420mg omega-3) and 1 gm of fish oil (500mg omega-3) is there any different in terms of efficiency and absorption?

1 gm of krill oil (420mg omega-3) and 1 gm of fish oil (500mg omega-3) is there any different in terms of efficiency and absorption?

See below: Both are good sources of omega-3's & both should be purchased from reliable sources. Major concern is possible mercury contamination, which is more likely & in higher concentration in fish as they are higher in food chain & toxins are more concentrated. Krill come from deep antarctic waters where toxins are less likely to be found. Sources also recommend astaxanthin (an antioxidant) be present. ...Read more

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

Hello. Can I have omega 3 and multi vitamins together in the same time without any side effects (i have glovit multi vitamins 32 with amino acid)?

Hello. Can I have omega 3 and multi vitamins together in the same time without any side effects (i have glovit multi vitamins 32 with amino acid)?

Likely yes; however: There is no harm in taking them together; however, b vitamins are commonly nauseating. This may increase the "repeat" (burping up the taste) of the omega oils. I would suggest taking the them at different times to prevent nausea. Several smaller doses make the vitamin available throughout the day. Take the oils at bedtime to minimize tasting repeat if it does occur. ...Read more

Does coconut oil pulling help? And what does it help? And what are side effects?

Probably not. : Apparently it's supposed to remove toxins. Pesticides, mercury, lead, antibiotics, etc can all be taken in the diet and are difficult to remove. Best to not take them in.

Please tell me if oils like mineral oil on skin are safe and if they can have any side effects?

Safe.: Contrary to what you may have read on-line, mineral oil is pretty harmless. If you apply it right after showering, while your skin is still moist, it will seal in the moisture and relieve dryness. If you have very sensitive skin you might get pimples or bumps from plugged up oil glands — but you won't know unless you try it. ...Read more
