Anybody realised that the price has increased 10% for international shipments? Just compare the prices to a few months back!

Cannot use single day code ELEVEN11 on omega 3 since omega 3 is on sale. Bummer, i thought can use it and get 15%+11% off on omega 3.

which is the best currency to use for payment in iherb sg?

i used sgd but credit card charges a fee when i received my bill.

When I use ASOS, there are certain currencies, that after converting to SGD is actually few dollars cheaper! So wondering if iherb has the same situation!

Hi can check fish oil omega 3 vs omega 3,6,9 got what different?
Is for my parents
No one replied?

Let me try.
Omega 3 is a great anti-inflammatory supplement
2 components in Omega 3 : EPA & DHA
DHA : very useful for young school age kids and old folks because it help boost brain & eyesight.
EPA : anti-inflammatory qualities for active lifestyle, so great for sports pple & gym rats

Omega 6 has its uses but too much of it becomes inflammatory.
Our diets have too little Omega 3 & too much Omega6. So we need more of the former & dont need anymore of the latter.

Omega 9 is quite a good neutral oil
I buy Neuvida for cooking.

So dont waste money to buy Omega 3-6-9
Get Omega 3 for your parents..
Check out the excel file mentioned below if you dont know which to buy.

Hope you find my summary useful

Currently I want try order iHerb to Moscow as I there too, I going to get fish oil, glucosamine. I started back to gym for a month, any other supplement to suggest that I should take to ?
Spoke w a friend who goes to the gym.
He doesnt do all sports supplements like BCAA & dunno what amino acid, testo etc,
He upped his Omega 3, & he takes CoQ10, Magnesium & whey protein & L-carnitine as well.
You take glucosamine for your joints ? Try Curcumin too. It works

Omega 6 has its uses but too much of it becomes inflammatory.
Our diets have too little Omega 3 & too much Omega6. So we need more of the former & dont need anymore of the latter.

But U need the Alpha or Gamma linolenic acid ( GLA), 2 highly potent fatty acids that is broken down from Linolenic acids found in omega 6.. ( LA to ALA, GLA ect)

Gamma Linolenic ( GLA) is beneficial to health and highly potent inhibitor (80% effect vs EPA/DHA - 55% effect ) of enzymes and binders that cause inflammation and prostate cancer , particularly the alpha 5 reductase that is also known to cause genetic hair loss

Problem is since there is an abundance of omega 6 in most diets. the body cannot effectively break down LA to to the beneficial acids and the conversion is pretty poor resulting in deficiency .

Only highly mediterranean diets rich in olive, oil, sunflower oil, and primrose oil , borrage oil ( highest) ,grape oil and other plant based sources contain these specific acids of omega 6 in their natural form

So u have take omega 3 with the specific omega 6 acids like ALA, and GLA supplements

I had tried various medi but my face seem to be always oily. Probably is the food i ate too. There's once i accompany my girlfriend to a nails salon at Novena. (Bling Bling Nails Novena) They can do nails for hours...sigh. i was recommended to do foot spa treatment at $58, i am amazed leh. Feel comfy and relax, did some scrub and wrapping and light massage. Thank God,I also enjoy the service while accompanying my dear.Thumb up.
