Common Questions and Answers about Omega 3 without fish oil


1655526 tn?1330659229 Coincidently, around 12 years ago when my arrythmia took a turn for the worse, I was on a health kick, had decided to clean up my health and diet, and started taking fish oil with Omega 3-6-9 and borage oil because I had heard it was heart healthy and would lower my cholesterol. Never made the connection between the supplements and the worsening arrythmia. I was on several other self-prescribed vitamin and mineral supplements as well.
Avatar f tn After talking to this lady about being pregnant, she advised me to take fish oil and that it had great benefits for the baby and I. It helps the development of the babies brain. Has anyone else heard that too?
Avatar n tn They provide about 1 gram of omega-3 fatty acids in about 3.5 ounces of fish. Fish oil supplements are usually made from mackerel, herring, tuna, halibut, salmon, cod liver, whale blubber, or seal blubber. Fish oil supplements often contain small amounts of vitamin E to prevent spoilage. They might also be combined with calcium, iron, or vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, C, or D. Fish oil is used for a wide range of conditions.
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.
Avatar f tn I take either Carlson brand Super Omega 3 Fish Oil or the Trader Joe's Fish Oil. Carlson's can usually be found at a health food store. Trader Joe's is a lot less expensive though. I understand the sensitivity issue. Both of these brands are light on the stomach and the nose! HA!

Avatar f tn I have been having a lot of trouble with palpitations lately and I just noticed that my margarine (a high omega 3 margarine) has fish oil in it. I'm wondering if that could be causing a problem for me. Sorry if this seems like a weird question, but I'm just trying to figure this out. Thanks for any help.
Avatar m tn Oh! I forgot, you would not burp the fish oil if you take the pill each time you eat something or after every meal, I have never had a problem with it.
Avatar m tn hi there I've been on your paleo diet for almost 2 years now and virtually spot-free. One question though. Over the last few days I started taking omega 3 fish oil tablets (Solgar 700). These have led to an increase in my spots - a couple in new areas (cheek, jawline). Ive also notices the same when eating an excess of salmon. Just wondering if you could explain this? I am keen to balance out any hormone imbalance but i seem to have a sensitivity to omega 3, or perhaps is it iodine?
343006 tn?1314450071 Question : I have been on Omega 3 fish oil pills for about 4 years now, I take 3 to 6 pills per day.

Avatar f tn I wasn't aware of that either. I'm not positive but I think it's the omega 3 in the fish oil that benefits the mood of children (and adults) in which case you can get that from other sources like flax. I have read great things about omega 3 and mood disorders.. Is that what you heard - that it is the omega 3? Or something else?
Avatar m tn Quite a complex topic this but at the same time an interesting one. Omega 3 isn't just one substance, Omega three are fatty acids just like Omega 6 fatty acids found in oils and meat etc. Omega 3 are EPA, DHA, and ALA . Some experts have said that the balance between Omega 6 fatty acids and Omega 3 is key, but just as many say this is nonsense. Omega 3 do have benefits, mainly reducing inflammation in the body, such as in the arteries or joints.
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 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..
Avatar m tn In general, fish oil (omega 3) is promotes a healthy heart and I think that alone justifies taking it. When the heart is healthy, the rhythm will follow. So it should help rhythm too. I have read that it can promote dangerous vt in those with ICD. But if you have a healthy heart, fish oil will help you maintain it. There are several Omega 3 fatty acids. They are named ALA (alpha linolenic acid ), EPA (eicosapentanoic acid) and DHA (docosahexanoic acid).
Avatar f tn I am vegan (no animal products) & I take Prenatal One by Rainbow Light. I began taking them at 6wks & In my first trimester they made me very nauseous. I switched to taking them in the evenings & that helped a lot! I also take a supplement from wholefoods for DHA omega-3's that is completely fish free - it's from algae.
Avatar f tn I visited my local GNC store to purchase some Omega 3 Fish Oil supplement. I bought the triple strength, and then asked while paying for it what was the normal dosage? He and another employee said "1,000mg per day." When I arrived home their "triple strength" is only 900 mg??? I have bought others that have always been 1,000mg and that is what I have been taking. Can someone please help me with what is the proper dosage? Thanks.
403156 tn?1290153618 You can get the Omega 3 fatty acids from either flax seed or fish oil. Mine are fish oil (I do not get the fishy smell), but some prefer the other. Just google omega 3s, depression and ADD and you will find lots of information out there. But basically, they help your brain function better by giving it the much needed nutrients because our diets are usually lacking in them - unless you consume lots amounts of fish.
Avatar f tn Anyone has had any experience or heard more in depth knowledge with Omega-3 helping with Bipolar symptoms. From what I have read it mostly helps with mood swings. I'm trying to help my husband get well (of course he'll keep using Mood Stabilizer). But anything new that works and can bring about change/ better productive life.
Avatar m tn Its fairly common for someone to feel nauseous when beginning to take fish oil/omega-3 supplements. Try taking the supplement in lower doses if taking more than 1 a day. Otherwise, try taking them with a meal. Your body will eventually (usually within a week or so) get used to the extra intake of the supplement, making the nausea subside. Avoid taking too much of the supplement, as high doses can raise the body's vitamin A & D levels too high.
432888 tn?1204076151 Iv been taking fish oil pills for years.. omega 3 oils - alot of Doctors say it wont lower anything or help the heart . but my last cholesterol test showed it had lowered it normal levels good and bad - (sorry dont have the numbers) the main thing is -it does work ! I take daily 3 to 6 pills - depending how I feel - its important to eat or drink something afterwords, as you can get the burping effect ( of fish taste) if you dont ! yuckie poo !
Avatar n tn Well, can that one. Day 2 without fish oil and my heart was HORRID at work. Back to the old drawing board.....
Avatar m tn A study of U.S. medical students showed, over 12 weeks, that those who received high-dose omega-3 fatty acids (2,496 mg once daily providing 2,085 mg EPA and 348 mg DHA), had a 20% reduction in anxiety symptoms compared to those receiving placebo treatment. Treated students also had a 14% decrease in a marker of inflammation (stimulated IL-6 production) (Kiecolt-Glaser, Brain Behav Immun 2011).
377493 tn?1356505749 So, it definitely can't hurt to start taking them, just make sure you get 100% fish oil, without all the additives, and that it doesn't derive from the fish liver. My girlfriend just gave me a bottle she bought from QVC, they are 100% fish oil and they cost her $100, but there's like 500 pills in the bottle. Which personally, I would never pay, and I'm certain there are brands that are just as good for half the cost. Anywho...
374593 tn?1257883550 org/publications/patient_education/bp001.cfm Mercury Fish and shellfish are good sources of protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and other nutrients. However, pregnant women should not eat certain kinds of fish because they contain high levels of a form of mercury that can be harmful to the developing fetus. You should avoid eating shark, swordfish, king mackerel, or tilefish during pregnancy. These large fish contain high levels of mercury.
Avatar f tn What is true is that the Omega 3 in flax seed oil is different from that in fish oil, and flax seed oil contains more than just omega 3 oils, whereas most fish oil is artificially purified to eliminate many other beneficial oils that would also be a fish. Since you can get cold processed organically grown flax, whereas fish are contaminated pretty much everywhere now, and for vegetarians, flax is a good source of oil, but for a diabetic, fish oil probably would be a good choice.
Avatar n tn I was thinking of switching to N3 Oceanic's ResQ1250 which has about 5-6 times the concentration of EPA, DHA and Omega-3's. However, their daily recommended dosage is 4-6 capsules per day which seems to be the equivalent of taking about 30 Mega-Red capsules per day. Would appreciate your input as to whether my analysis is correct and why are they recommending such a very high dosage.
Avatar f tn The most important for the heart is EFA, which is found in largest amounts in fish oil, but flax and hemp oil are also very high in omega 3 oils. But omega 3 oils don't do the same thing as statins. Statins lower LDL cholesterol, the bad kind, whereas omega 3 oils provide the good kind of cholesterol, HDL. If you raise HDL, that will be more preventive of future heart disease than lowering LDL unless you're LDL was sky high.
