i'm thinking if its more economical and beneficial if i eat canned sardines at least three times a week.

Good Reviews about Omega 3 Fish Oil..


I've heard so much good things and reviews about omega 3 fish oil and its benefits before that's why it's give me reason to try it since im a sick person with a lot of sickness..

The brand i used is the Maxalife. It's my friend suggestion and also i read info before about their products in magazines and flyers. And i'm just amaze about the results. It's more than that i expect. maybe because it really helps the brand i chose.

fish oil does have a lot of benefits but as for anxiety its efficacy is questionable.

it has however been proven to treat bipolar, even better than some prescriptions it was pitted against in I imagine more than one double blind study.

lovaxa is bs, the government doesn't want us to trust natural remedies so they have to try and steal them and try and take the credit.. the ethyl properties just mean it's more efficient and processed by the body better. lovaxa in itself is probably not bs, but fish oil is widely available, they don't need to make it a prescription. it's like they're admitting that fish oil is better than all the other cholesterol lowering prescriptions they have.. yea we know but they don't need to gunk it up.

anyways to get certain results really high dosages are required. the amount of epa and dha are what really matters. you could have a 1g pill and an 800mg pill but the 800mg pill could have 420mg of epa and 120mg of dha while the 1g pill has 220mg of epa and 200mg of dha.. there's a lot of variation so reading the labels is important.
I don't think mercury is a huge concern because there are many reputable brands out there and they have strict standards; there's virtually no mercury in them.

there's a brand called Carlson that's trusted and widely available. on the Vitamin Shoppe website, a bottle of liquid is normally like $40-$50 but you can get it for like $20 cuz they have web only specials and I think it's normally on there. you can also tell them you saw it online (if you did) for cheaper while at the store and they'll match their website price.
it's 16.9fl size and 1 teaspoon is a serving; about 100 servings per container
one teaspoon has 800mg of epa and 500mg of dha, a very nice dosage, though you may take more or less than one teaspoon a day depending on what your goal is.

I do not eat fish or anything that used to swim for a living and I wouldn't dream of it, but I am able to take this liquid no problem. and I think it has less after effects than pills. the trick whether you're taking a liquid or pill, is to drink water when you take it and make sure to eat something that has a little bit of fat.. healthy fats such as nuts or some avocado or maybe cheese, even chips lol... then you shouldn't have any fishy burps or anything unpleasant.

it's a really nice product. I used to take it more strictly but stopped for a while but got more when I could afford it and now I just take it whenever..
there are lots of studies on fish oil, you can easily see for yourself what it realistically and theoretically can and can't do

feel free to message me if you'd like me to share what helpful things I've learned with you

Omega-3 is really good for you; mood and brain function also many other benefits. I take it twice a day.

My friend says he has one of those pills every day. I've heard it's pretty good for you.

True it is all about the EPA and DHA the higher the better, though some reports are coming out and clamming its just EPA but that remains to be seen. The fish oils you buy in shops and on-line wont have that much of an effect really you need to be taking pharmaceutical grade fish oil which is what all these trials have been based on. iv been taking "omax3" expensive i know! but completely worth it. 2 of these bad boys contain 1125mg EPA and 275mg DHA and i sometimes take 4 or 5! and have been for 3 months or so now, even my mum comented the other day on how she feels like she can have an actual conversation with me now...

I've used Omega 3's for a while and it does nothing for me. Not for mood, skin, or anything.

Coromega is the best brand to get. It has 300% better absorption rate compared to softgels (there was a study done)... also zero fish taste nor burps.

If you want less metals, look for "molecularly distilled".

I started taking it because I heard that it helps with ADD. I don't have ADD but I have trouble paying attention sometimes. Strangely, I feel when I take it I'm more spacey than usual, but that could just be me. I will check out Coromega.

JESUS , is just fish oil a supplement. Its not an ad or mood stablizer. Its just a fish oil that people who are run down with illness as a supplement like vitamin d. I take it i dont know if it does any good or what , im was advised to take it, an it dont cost much so hey why not. But if your looking to change you mood or cure depression with omega fish oil your barking up the wrong tree .

He gave it away as he has no use for that much. He doesn't need 4 capsules a day (equal to a dozen OTC fish oil). According to the information with it the folks who need 4 of those a day have triglyceride levels of 500-2,000. I didn't know such levels were even possible -- do they have bacon grease for blood?

Seems my brother's triglyceride levels have gone down since he stopped drinking a liter of whiskey a day.

Saw on Dr. Oz the important of omega 3! I just bought some omega 3 supplements the other day, it's apparently safe and free of mercury or any sort of acids/fats. I suppose the results won't show til after a few months.

I used to down a litre of vodka, not in a day, in one swallow to nuke me fom my mental pain. like the film 300 spartans, i used to say, TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO DIE. but later i remembered another qoute that put me off, EAT WELL MY BROTHERS FOR TONIGHT WE DINE IN HELL. great film saved my life in a way.

I have started taking cod-liver oil (I could not manage to keep down any size or amount of the capsules) for other health benefits. I find the best source of figuring out how my anxiety, depression, etc. is doing is not by gauging MY opinion, but asking those around me.

My Mood: Lurking
I started taking fish oil/omega 3, B complex, and vitamin D supplements last fall, along with my multivitamin. I did it for the other health benefits but found that it smoothed out the rough days about as well as the generic Prozac I had been on, without the sexual side effects. It doesn't help with the really low days but I found I was having more good days than bad.

I haven't been taking them as consistently lately since my schedule is off kilter with my kids out of school for the summer and I've had more rough days than happy.

Fish oil is actually carcinogenic. There was a class action lawsuit about this (in Europe or UK- I forget.) Fish get omega 3 from eating plant foods and that's the best way to get it. Raw chia seeds and hemp seeds are excellent for this.
