Good work Liza, Your article is very informative and helpful in understanding the importance of Omega-3 fatty acid. We always connect omega-3 with seafood and found it rare item to eat. You made us clear about its origin and application

Thank you :)

I recently discovered about Omega 3 from Clary Sage Seed Oil. After research, I found out it provides the best Essential Fatty Acid for our body. This vegan & natural product is simply AMAZING!! Really a life changer. Omega 3 from Clary Sage Seed Oil taste great (I sometimes put it in my salad).
This site was very helpful with all the information -
I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I do :)

I'm contacting you because I have read you article about Omega. Shortly my story: I have psoriasis and five years ago it really flared up in my joints so I couldn't exercise anymore and two years ago patches started appearing on my skin and under nails. But about a year ago I started taking a new natural omega product that was suggested to me and now for all practical purposes my psoriasis is gone. I would like to know how you measure omega 6 and 3 ratio due to its importance? I use a blood test which shows the ratio and several other data analyzed by leading laboratories. For example my first test ratio was 8,4:1, second after four months 3,4:1 and third a year later 1,6:1. It`s would be nice to heard your opinion.

Great Article! One of the few great ones I've read. I take Laminine Omega. It is patented and has Omega fatty Acids 3 (EPA and DHA), 6, and 9 + CoQ10(Extended Release), Vitamin K2... It is made in USA; head office is in California. That's why
delivery and handling is free in the States. Delivery varies from 3 to 8 days.
I found this online and have been ordering it online as well . You click Join if you want to be a member and get the member's price Or click retail order if you don't want to be a member.

One more thing, LPGN sources its fish oil from Engraulis Ringens, a member of the anchovy family, found in the Humboldt Current off the coast of South America near Peru, where the waters are clean and clear. Phytoplankton that the Engraulis Ringens species consumes in this region is rich in DHA and EPA, giving the fish the highest naturally occurring ratios of DHA and EPA of any other fish species. The fish oil also
undergoes molecular distillation, and is tested before and after the process to remove gunk and toxins and ensure the safety of the oil.

While it is true that there are 3 main Omega3s that are in the standard American diet, there are actually over 11 different types. Please! for the science geeks amongst us be a bit more accurate! :)

Also, please not that in addition to SOY being bad for folks with breast or reproductive area cancers, it is also VERY BAD for people with THYROID issues. So many of us have thyroid issues and do not know that soy is poison!! for them.

don't forget your chia seed or Salba if you prefer the trademarked light coloured seed. nearly 5,000 mg per oz of Omega 3 fatty acid and you don't need to grind it.
