GEEK ALERT ! Omega-3, Omega-6 ...To fish or not to fish!!!

An essential debate

ASBMB.org

"{He continues, “It is generally viewed that EPA and DHA confer cardioprotection. Consumption of EPA and DHA are recommended for the prevention of cardiovascular diseases. The question then comes up from a metabolic perspective: Can these other sources of omega-3 PUFA, like ALA, be converted to DHA? Yes, they can, but they’re not as effective as taking an EPA- or DHA-containing supplement or eating fish containing EPA and DHA.” (Nonfish sources of EPA from yeast and DHA from algae are commercially available.)

It’s important to note that omega-3 PUFAs are involved in a variety of biological processes, including cognitive function, visual acuity and cancer prevention. The molecular and biochemical bases for their effects on those systems are complex and not well understood.}"



For me, I take a fish supplement daily...and try to eat fish 2 or 3 times a week.
I vary the fish--Tilapia, Tuna, Salmon....but I also eat Flax(grind my own), and only by butter, coconut oil and EVOO...
.....I think variety is very important.
