  • Fish Oil

    Hello All,

    I have been reading a lot about Fish Oil and the benefits of supplementing Omega 3's into my diet and it got me thinking, for those that do this what benefits have you seen? I know what benefits Mark lists and other sites I found on google, but I was looking more for individual results. So if you don't mind:

    1) What benefits have you seen? (Omega 3 supplementation)
    2) How much do you take daily?

    Thank you in advance! I was thinking of starting with 2 g per day (pill form).

    Thanks,

    Drifter

    A took a bunch in the beginning, to balance out years of too much O6. But now my diet is pretty balanced, so I don't worry about it.

    It does help with weight loss, inflammation, etc.

        Robb Wolf has recently changed his thinking on the benefits of trying to adjust the O3:O6 ratio by initially taking mega doses of fish oil. The reasoning is that the body can only uptake a limited amount to use for cell building and repair. Flooding the body with large doses of O3 does not increase the rate of turnover. It's important to eat balanced O3:O6 fats and eventually the ratios in the body's cells will come into balance.

          Yeah, when I started, the prevailing strategy was to bombard the body with fish oil. We learn.
