    Omega-3 Help!


    Hey Everyone,

    I have a questions regarding Omega-3's. What is the best source for balanced, ALL AROUND Omega-3's. Not just EPA or DHA. Currently my healthy fats come from Flax Seeds, 100% Natural Peanut Butter. I also eat Tuna and Salmon about 5 times a week. Is this good enough? Or do you think I could benefit from an additional supplement? If so, what would be your recommended sup?

    Udo's choice oil is a great way to add healthy fats to your diet

    I'm confused. Why wouldn't you want the highest form of omega-3s (epa/dha)?

    Udos is a 3-6-9.

    yeah Udo's has all three essential fats, other than udo's I would just recommend a fish oil supp. Tuna doesnt have much by way of fats, the salmon would but it would also depend on the type of salmon, pacific, atlantic, sockeye etc.

    If you eat flax and lots of fatty fish, you are probably getting adequate amounts of Omega-3's. However benefits have been noted at taking higher dosing.

    A relatively cheap test to see if you respond well to high Omega-3's would be to buy some Omega-3 supps (http://www.nutraplanet.com/product/n...-softgels.html which will be back in stock mid next-week are the best value ). You can add an extra 5g of Omega-3's relatively cheaply, and see if in a month you notice some of the reported benefits.
