omega-3

Avatar f tn Also Flax Seed Oil! These are great for anyone to take regularly. They have the Omega 3's we need, the good fat. It nurishes the brain, helps us to think better, more clearly, helps the skin, hair and joints. There are no bad side effects at all that I've ever heard of. Like I said, we all should take these. It's very good for you! I have a friend who was very into the natural things and had two boys who had ADHD.
Avatar n tn Fish Oil? Omega-3 fatty acids maybe? I see some research that suggests that the fatty acids MAY be beneficial for alzheimers and people with chronic fatigue syndrom. But note the use of the word "may." I find no FDA studies which say that fish oil had demonstrated a positive effect on people diagnosed with panic and axiety.
612551 tn?1450025775 It seems our friend the dog also benefits from a good dose of Omega 3, as sound in fish. We have our Westie on a sweet potato fish formula kibble and I wonder if it could be improved by breaking open a one human (the type we may take 3 or more of a day) fish oil capsule and drizzle it over the main kibble meal. Yes, I have read the advice on feeding some canned food too, and am working my way up to that.

Avatar n tn has anybody tried omega 3 fish oil supplements for adhd treatment? I just read about it online and was wondering if anyones tried it...my daughter currently takes dexadrine but it just has too many side effects..she's 5 and can now fit back into her size 3 pants and they are too big. She used to wear a size 5. she's losing weight so we've requested numerous blood tests to be done..just looking for something else to try in the meantime..
377493 tn?1356505749 I don't mean to be the party pooper, particularly as I'd be delighted to find a way of getting omega-3 since I've gone off fish entirely and can't bring myself to so much as look at it... but I just coincidentally read something that said that just as some fish can be high in mercury, so can fish oil supplements and apparently there are no studies one the mercury content of fish oil supplements. Any thoughts??
Avatar f tn Sorry, forgot about the omega 7 oils. These are found in fish oil, along with the omega 3 oils, but in the process of isolating the oil the heat used will often kill them off. There's a new fish oil supplement by New Chapter that supposedly doesn't kill them off. As to their effectiveness for your vaginal health, I don't know. I do know that evening primrose oil is helpful for that, but again, have no idea if that will do anything to rid you of an infection.
Avatar f tn No, cod liver oil should be avoided. You can get fish oil (that's not from liver) which is great for you and baby.
Avatar m tn Paxiled, I've tried Omega fatty acids in the past.. The fish oils (Omega 3's) , the plant oils (Omega 6's) Omega 9's are a different class I believe..and Primrose goes in the Omega 6 category. But yeah, just taking those oils alone never did anything for me. Its something with the Primrose oil that does something special. I think more research should be done into it. So are you saying (or thinking) that primrose could lowers testosterone ?
Avatar n tn my hair is now just under shoulder lenght. since aug, 22. i have filled 3/4 of a gallon baggy up of hair from just my brush, not what just falls out , and what falls out in the shower. every person is diffrent though, good luck! i just hope the hair loss stops soon .
612551 tn?1450025775 Except for the usual benefits of fiber, powdered cellulose provides no nutritional value to a dog. Fish oil is naturally rich in omega-3 fatty acids, and (depending on the level of its purity) should be considered a healthy addition. From here, the list goes on to include a number of other items. But to be realistic, ingredients located this far down the list (other than nutritional supplements) are not likely to have much of an effect on the overall rating of this product.
Avatar f tn Feeding high quality food dry AND moist and some high quality fish oil could build their immunity enough to fight off the mites.
122065 tn?1241388929 Yes, I do take ******* Omega Guard which is a full spectrum of seven Omega-3's including DHA and EPA. I understand that there have been many studies on the benefits of Omega Fish oil on the eyes and body as a whole, so I started using it sometime ago. I'll continue with that and give the Restasis a good try. I have no risk factors such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes or obesity, so I think your suggestion of 2 a day is fine.
Avatar n tn We noted that she definietely benefits from a daily use of fish oil ( Essential fatty acid - Omega 3), Probiotics and a liquid multivitamin and magnesium supplement. She takes her supplements for 3 weeks and then she is off them for 1 week. If this seems to be her medication for life- so be it! This difficult experience was my inspiration to go back to school and become a Registered Nutrition Practitioner to work with kids who are overdiagnosed with ADD and other behavioural disorders.
Avatar m tn The FDA thinks walnuts are drugs If you're skeptical that what I'm saying here is true, take a look at the warning letter the FDA sent to Diamond Food, Inc. back in February concerning the health claims the company had been making about its walnuts. Diamond Food, Inc., a large producer of nuts and nut products, had put some information on its website about the health benefits of walnuts (which are rich in omega-3 fatty acids).
612551 tn?1450025775 I'll look at the package to see what is lists for Omega 3 verses 6. One of Wilson's (dog) chief problems is skin problem and hair loss. In the past it has also included Yeast infection and in his ears too. His current bout of hair loss doesn't seem to have any dermatitis? Yeast,, no much itching or smell. I do shampoo him in a prescription shampoo to fight Yeast, about once a week. I'll move forward with caution on the Flaxseed.
Avatar m tn A wide variety of supplements have shown some benefit in reducing anxiety and/or depression. Fish oil has been found to be helpful for both depression and anxiety. Supplementing with fish oil with a high percentage of the omega-3 fatty acid EPA has been shown to improve symptoms in moderate and major depression (although not in mild depression) and may help to improve the effectiveness of various antidepressant medications.
Avatar n tn I've taken my medical-grade multivitamins for almost 3 years now, but I only took my omega-3 fish oil, rarely. In early March 2011, I began taking a very concetrated form of fish oil in liquid (not capsule) form (Carlson is the brand name- probably could be found in many whole foods stores). Also, I began taking Chloroxygen (concentrated chlorophyll from plants) to help detox my body since March 2011. Within a couple weeks, my folliculitis CLEARED UP!!
529981 tn?1212853666 Also I have tried, salycylic shampoos, tar shampoos, jojoba oil, AND nothing seems to help. Please help me and my hair. I am a busy college student, who unfortunately does not have the time and money to deal with this.
874521 tn?1424120397 Olive oil doesn't have the same effect and cod liver oil in amounts to work in this regard is unsafe. Fish oil or flaxseed oil work but best to get the concentrate of the fatty acids in fish oil. As an actual medication that can be used if a psychiatrist approves it and as I've posted the FDA approved anti-cholesterol medication Lovaza which was developed from fish oil is in fact in experimental use as a mood stabilizer.
Avatar f tn The third ingredient is vegetable oil… a generic oil of unknown origin. The ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids in any oil is nutritionally critical and can vary significantly (depending on the source). Without knowing more, it’s impossible to judge the quality of any item vaguely described as simply “vegetable oil”. The fourth item is calcium phosphate… a nutritional supplement used as a source of both calcium and phosphorous.
Avatar f tn I take high does of fish oil (omega Liquid fish oil about 4 grams, which is 12mls per day, have for years, also take garlic tablets, have pysillum husk every day, have done that for Year. I eat oats/oatbran with prunes or berries every day, plus cinnamon on my oats for breakfast, Any other advice would be great. I exercise every day 44yrs female, not overweight.
144210 tn?1273092382 I have NASH (and hep C), and I take omega 3 in the form of salmon oil. Am I exacerbating my cirhotic condition? Thanks.
483733 tn?1326802046 (Check with your doctor to determine whether fasting would be appropriate for you). The omega-3 oils, present in flaxseed oil and in cold-water fish, such as tuna, salmon, herring, trout, mackerel, sardines, and cod liver, are especially helpful in relieving morning stiffness and tender joints. GLA (gamma-linolenic acid), an omega-6 oil that is present in primrose oil, borage oil, and black currant seed oil, has been shown to augment the anti-inflammatory effect of the omega-3 oils.
4437866 tn?1388123224 Salmon is good for mothers-to-be; it’s high in omega-3 fatty acids like DHA, which studies show have a variety of benefits for pregnant women and their fetuses, and salmon is a fresh water fish, so the likelihood of mercury poisoning is low. Myth #5: You can’t eat sushi. False. Sushi is permissible except for mackerel, shark, tilefish and swordfish. And don’t eat too much tuna — no more than 12. oz (about two maki, or rolls) per week.

4437866 tn?1388123224 You shouldn’t eat smoked salmon while pregnant. False.

626901 tn?1261876405 I suffered from stage one progressing to stage 2 HS for 15 years and it wasnt until I started taking pharmaceutical grade fish oil (which gives u 1000g of fish oil as opposed to 350g as is found in over the counter drugstore fish oil) I AM ALL CLEAR NOW. For the first time in 15 YEARS. I am all clear. I take nothing else apart from this. If ur taking other meds or are preggers please ask ur doc before taking fish oil.
Avatar m tn Natural sources for safe pain relief, Unless you eat fatty fish like salmon or sardines on most days, you're simply not getting enough healthy omega-3 fats-or their anti-inflammatory benefits. You want to get two specific omega-3s in particular: EPA and DHA. The best source for both is fish oil. Aim for 1,000-3,000 mg total DHA and EPA. Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), a sulfur-rich compound can be added to the mix too.

4274823 tn?1388532698 You said that, "I talked with a registered dietitian by phone today she suggested only taking an iron supplement on a doctor's advice. I've had two ferritin bloodwork lab results in a row for "reduced iron stores", but the doctor didn't advise an iron supplement because my hemoglobin is OK." So even though some of your tests have indicated low iron, you should only take iron supplements on the advice of the same doctor that has been unsuccessful in treating you so far?
