> Lar,

I'm sorry to phrase it this way, but the optimal dose is the amount that works for you. It's too variable to define that way, although statistics (averages) are sometimes used, many times its forgotten that these are statistics.

> Also, do you think the ratio is very important (some formulations claim to have the 'best' ratio)?

I think the emphasis on EPA is inappropriate, but that's my opinion. I like to think natural oils are best.

At least some of the time (you needn't take it every time, with the fish oil), you would probably benefit by taking a GLA source (evening primrose, borage, or black currant) with your fish oil. The combination of fish oil + GLA has rather potent anti-inflammatory potential.
