    Anyone use the brand or have any feedback on Nordic Naturals? They were recommended to me by a nutritionist.

    as for flax seed - awesome to get the ALA from that BUT the downside to ALA is that it's harder to get dha from that than getting it from a straight source. that's one downer

    Another way to think about flax is to get cracked flax seed - to get the fiber and some omega 3 benefits.

    MC, In your opinion, what is the best oil you can get in the UK?

    I never consume fish oil capsules. The product contains oils damaged from the filtration process, they began going rancid* upon after the fish died and the process accelerated after being removed from the fish and with the ecological damage caused by fishing via dragging nets combined with the overfishing/low populations, I stopped a long time ago.

    *Think of cutting an apple open--it quickly goes brown upon being exposed to air. Like the apple, fish oil begins going rancid.

    Of the various sources of fish oil, sardines are allegedly the most environmentally friendly and lower in toxins.

    But, does anyone realize it isn't how much fish oil or Omega 3 you consume? It is far more important to limit inflammatory foods, especially if you're getting them from the grocery store or local butcher in the US:think red meats (which contain SFAS, AA which are highly inflammatory), egg yolks and fatty milk products.

    Wild game, eggs are far lower in Omega 6 and SFAs...if you hunt or have gone through a military survival school, you'll know what I'm referring to. The lean meats in the wild taste different and less fatty cuts.

    If you think you need fish oil, think about:

    - What is the Omega 6/SFA content of your diet? If you live in the US and consume red meats, egg yolks, then, you're consuming a very pro-inflammatory source of food.
    - How much sugar is in your diet? How many white foods--bread, pasta--do you consume?

    Taking Omega 3/fish oil for inflammation makes as much sense as taking a statin for heart disease. You don't fix heart disease with a statin and any doctor who knows his stuff will admit this...Omega 3 doesn't fix the root cause of the issue.

    And think about the environment the next time you're reaching for the fish oil...

    Take a look at sites that discuss over fishing...cod populations are extremely low. Sardines are a better choice.

    Fish oil does not burn fat. This is a myth. "Burning fat" typically takes place where a person is in an aerobic state where fat is used as fuel or glycogen is low.

    Weight loss takes place when you're in a caloric deficit and your hormones are in balance--eg insulin levels aren't going crazy.

    Fish oil does not prevent heart disease. Fish oil reduces inflammation, which is a source of vascular disease affecting the arteries, etc. However, any diet that halts or reverses heart disease is anti-inflammatory because it removes processed grains and sugars, transfats and SFAs.

    BTW, you can halt or reverse heart disease without wasting money on drugs or worthless supplements. Simply fix your diet. And that same diet is advocated to prevent cancer by doctors and researchers.

    Hmmm...keep spending money on supplements or fix the diet, as you have to eat anyway?

    Fish oil is the only supplement I take at the moment.

    I'm based in the UK & I use fish oil from Aliment Nutrition. I take two table spoons per day.

    The specs are per 5ml teaspoon:

    (DHA) 750mg
    (EPA) 1050mg
    Total Omega 3 (DHA, EPA & Total omega-3 provided as pure fish oil) 2250mg

    Two capsules per day (2g) along with my morning eggs or smoothie.

    I eat fish 2-5 times per week depending on availability and the selection. Salmon, mackerel, tuna and shrimps are staples in my diet. Once in a while I eat oysters, mussels, and other shell fish.
