Do you know how many studies there are that proves the efficacy of omega 3 on not just CHD but also dementia, inflammation etc? Thousands!!

At 61, I can attest that omega 3 definitely works at least for me. TG is low. Blood pressure is in the healthy range. Excellent for aging joints & also dry eyes if you have them like me.

I take min 3 grams of omega 3 per day: that’s 6 caps of double strength fish oil. This dosage works well for me & I can tell if I lower the dosage to say 2 grams of omega 3 instead of 3.

I read your links with interest, & not all debunk Omega 3 Fish Oil.
1. admits Omega 3 is useful to rebalance Omega 3/6 ratio because our poor food choices to "avoid the numerous diseases " (in the last para)
2 & 3 refers to a study (ASCEND) that Fish oils do not prevent heart attack or strokes in people with diabetes but "The study also does not negate the possible beneficial effect of fish intake in the diet because of other possible health confounders in fish"
4. is on Body Bldg supplements
5. is on Probiotics
6. admits "omega-3 fats do have a role to play in human health"

So Omega 3 supplements has beneficial health effects because it rebalances our Omega 3:6 ratio. It is already well known to the research community that Omega 3 is still an excellent supplement for its Anti-inflammatory Effects.

Just look at research papers (studies/clinical trials etc) published in Google Scholar just for 2018 alone: 10800 hits
https://scholar.google.com.sg/schola...=en&as_sdt=0,5
The positive benefits for Omega 3 is still mind boggling.

Not sure which Omega 3 to take? Then check out the price value comparison tables in this excel file: GET319.xls & you'll find that the Best Value Omega 3. Look at the links (for CoA, Labdoor, EDF) given for each brand in the excel file.

Going to order my Omega 3. Happy Hunting!

Thank you. All this while, I got eat but not so high dosage like you. Should I increase the dosage like you? Recently so many news about Omega 3, so I want to hear few more times from the expert like you before spend more money on it.

You need to experiment with the dosage as to what will work for you. My 3 grams of omega 3 works for me but may be too high for you because every person is different.

Haha... I also used get319.

Had a little problem just now.
Ordered 6 bottles of Jarrow to be sent with CJ Express but I was billed with Singpost $2.74

Got the CSO to reverse it.

Imagine the Cart & Checkout pages differ!
Need to double check your final bill before confirm

Definitely not GNC - their prices are totally ridiculous in S’pore.

I take Jarrow DHA-EPA Balance. It’s double strength fish oil. Read the details on the label.

The main reason for my relatively high dosage is because my risk of CHD is pretty high as both my elderly parents had strokes when they were in their late 60s.

Yes it thins the blood but very little or even zero side effects unlike blood thinning drugs like warfarin.

2 years back I had a tooth extraction because I was having a toothache. I was still on 3 grams of omega 3. The blood clotted as usual after the extraction. If it was warfarin it’ll be a totally different ball game.

For fish oil and omega-3 supplementation, it's important to take note of the EPA and DHA content.
For gen population, aim for 1-2g of EPA and DHA combined, this is approximately 2 capsules of Jarrows. People with special conditions like CVD, inflammation and pregnancy may need to take more.

IIRC the Cochrane review mainly looked at studies where the dosages were below the effective doses shown in trials, hence the conclusion. The key takeaway isn't that fish oil is a waste of money, it's that doses below levels known to be therapeutic don't do ****
edit; pg12 - dose range of 0.4-0.7g was cited
