Allergies are apt to be more active with an Omega 3 deficiency? Hmm very interesting. Is there another way to get Omega 3 without the fish oil capsules?

I am also the moderator over at the Uc forum and many of our members there are on the fish oil which seems to help them but the other half is like me, they can't tolerate the fish oil. I have tried it numerous times in the past and unfortunately it makes my symptoms a lot worse then without it. Very interesting articles though, thank you :)

This definately should be looked into for people with allergies. Anyone with allergies will try almost anything to help alliviate their symptoms. Do you happen to know if this will help asthma sufferers as well?

Hi Sherry,
Sorry to jump in. Have you tried flaxseed oil supplements? This is also an omega-3 supplement and you might have not so hard of a time with this. I currently take this and have not had any problems.

Des, you can jump in anytime you want :) No, I haven't tried the flaxseed yet and it's something that I will definately look into. If Omega 3 will help my allergies then I think I will pick some up on my next visit to the health food store, is this is capsule form too?

Yes it is Sherry and you can get probably anywhere, I get mine at my local CVS. It looks like any other oil capsule. :)

Well I'm not entirely sure on asthma because I havent really looked into it but according to my friend liam he is doing much better. He used to get a lot of cougthing at night... now that has gone he says.  He takes
 
A multivitamineral (cant give name on here)
EGCG Max Supplement ( equivelent of 10 cups of Green tea )  - This I highly recommend!  PLus it would definintly help with allergies -  Don't take at same time as food (interefers with absoprtion of certain vitamins/minerals)
Omega 3 supplement - Everyone should be getting n-3 but 90% of people are deficient, but omega 3 is now being introduced into foods like yogurts in small amounts.
 
Whether or not you believe simple things can help, you should give these things a try. When I had problems I think that I was going to be stuck with them for life! But with a bit of researching and understanding nutrition and supplements I overcome my problems. 
 
I hope you try some new things and see what happens.  Also, things don't improve over night, give it a few weeks atleast. 

Your body and Brain NEEDS omega 3 for proper function, it's a very important fatty acid. You should be getting it in diet somehow regardless if you have problems or not :)
 
if you were to get flax seed oil or something that has omega 3 you should store it in a COLD DARK place to slow down oxidation which would be harmful.
