Here are a few quick facts and tips regarding fish oil:
Dosage: In studies related to muscle growth and fat loss and reduced inflammation, participants took 3-4 grams of EPA/ DHA per day. That is 3-4g of EPA/ DHA, not total Fish Oil. The actual Omega-3 content in most pills is 20%-60% and required 6-10 pills to reach a therapeutic dosage (3-4 grams). SFH Fish oil has over 3.1 grams per teaspoon with the option for 1,000 IU of added Vitamin D3.
Essential vs. Non-Essential:  Omega-3 and -6 are both essential fatty acids, meaning that they are not produced by the body and must be obtained through food/ supplements. Omega-6 does not need to be supplemented due to the abundance found in today’s diet. Omega-9 is a non-essential fatty acid and is produced by our bodies.
Sources: There are very few Omega-3 sources, the best being wild-caught, cold water fish like anchovy, sardines, herring and mackerel. Flax chia, hemp and echium are not viable sources as they are primarily ALA. Only a very small percentage of ALA is converted to EPA/DHA.
