So it does have a little DHA, correct? I read a 7 to 1 ration, EPA to DHA. I think it's still very to get a little DHA in our diet anyway, so the amount in Omegabrite is a good thing. I doubt there are many out there that are that sensitive to a little DHA. I guess they would know if the ever ate any marine food sources.

I think it looks like a great product, especially for those that do really well with a much higher EPA to DHA ratio. I've found that with EPA and DHA omega 3s, it can be a trial and error thing. Some, actually do better with more DHA and less EPA. This would make sense as much of the good natural sources of marine omega 3s, like sardines, have more DHA than EPA. It could be that we evolution favors a higher DHA to EPA ratio, that seems to be more common in nature. Maybe where our ancestors lived in the world and the genes they've passed down to us makes a difference for some, who knows. I find it interesting that studies show higher EPA ratios work better for depression. I'm sure there is an explanation that involves the different mechanisms by which EPA and DHA work on the brain. I believe it is EPA that has more of an impact on suppressing inflammation, this could be one reason for it's effects on depression. Both EPA and DHA are crucial to brain function and brain health protection. I know DHA is believed to be very protective of eye health, and possibly against neurodegeneration, so it is just as important as EPA. Some may argue for DHA being more important for several reasons.

Whatever we think we believe about these omega 3s, they are both crucial. I guess the important thing for you and the rest of us is getting some relief and improving quality of life. If you try this product, I'd be interested in finding out if it helps you in any way. I sure hope it does Scott.
