Re: Omega 3 EPA vs DHA Research and Discussion

The last few years I've just gotten my omega-3s from eating fatty fish a few times a week. Lots of sardines, some herring, some salmon.

Some believe that it's crucial to take gamma linolenic acid with omega-3s. Michael Norden has a chapter on combining fish oil and GLA in Beyond Prozac. Norden and Barry Sears (author of The Zone diet books) recommend taking tiny amounts of GLA -- only a few milligrams a week. (A capsule of evening primrose oil typically contains 90 mg of GLA.) It might be in Omega Rx Zone that Sears discusses GLA at length. He writes that people typically do well on it in the beginning, but then its benefits begin to fade because they're taking way too much of it. When I've taken the huge amounts of GLA in evening primrose and borage oil capsules, it's made me feel very irritable. What I do now is prick a capsule with a pin, squeeze out a drop or two, and then keep the capsule in a sandwich bag in the refrigerator to use again in a few days.
