Omega-3 Fish Oil - benefits? What to try?

hi there - i'm new to the topic of fish oil in general - i know there are a lot of options - i was curious - i live in canada and i got referred to this site - can anyone vouch for how good this product is? what should i be looking for when i read the breakdown of its contents? what makes one fish oil better than another??

i'm reading terms like IFOS - can anyone help?

this is what i was referred to - does anyone have an opinion?

Fish oil is a good source of omega 3 fatty acids. These fatty acids work to reduce inflammation throughout the body.

Check out Carlson fish oil. It contains 1600mg omega 3's per serving and doesn't have a lot of filler.

Hi,
I think omega-3 is one of the most important supplements that we should take on a daily basis.
In the book "The UltraMind Solution" (which is an awesome book on how nutrition influences our thoughts, emotions, memory and learn capability)they recommend to take twice at day 1000mg with a EPA/DHA ratio of 300/200.
You can read more of the benfits of omega-3 in a post I have written two days ago. The post it's called:
"5 nutritional supplements that have drastically improved my life".
I hope I have helped you.
Cheers

Fish oil also contains a good amount of vitamin D (calciferol) and vitamin E (tokoferol)which is highly beneficial for us. The high protein ingredients are also the part of the fish oil.
