I just bought it.  FIgure I woudl try it. My doc said I should try the omega-3.  But I did some reasding and Omega 6&9 looks like it could help too.
 
Curious if anyone else tried it and what your experiences were.

I personally would not take any omega 6 or 9 supplement. We are overloaded with that in our diets to start with.

I agree. In general, most folks don't need to supplement with omega-6 and -9 because they get plenty in their diet. Omega-3 is an excellent natural anti-inflammatory. If you do supplement with a blend of all three, Udo Erasmus recommends a 2:1:1 ratio with the emphasis on Omega-3.

Tons of info out there, I would stear away from the product info selling a 3-6-9 supplement and read the research. This is a pretty easy read from an actual peer reviewed journal: http://www.aafp.org/afp/20040701/133.html

Those fatty acids 6 and 9 will also compete with the omega-3's. Get a good omega-3 with at least 500 mg DHA in one cap. I would recommend Carlsons Super DHA formula.

Fruits and vegetables are not sources of essential fatty acids. Omega-6s can be found in many of our common vegetable cooking oils: soybean oil, sunflower oil, canola oil and corn oil. They’re also common ingredients in many of the foods we consume, which is why most of us have a heavily imbalanced ratio of omega-6s to 3s. The ratio of 6s to 3s is an important consideration for your health because too much omega-6 tends to gear up the inflammatory process.
 
Omega-9s are found in animal fats and vegetable oils, most notably olive oil. Omega-9s are the most abundant fatty acids of all in nature, and they are not in short supply in our diets. They are also not considered essential because our bodies can make omega-9s from unsaturated fat in our bodies.

Our bodies don't produce omegas which is why it's important to get them in...I use omega 3-6-9 with no issues.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it! LOL :)

If your diet is low in the sources of omega-6 and -9 listed above, it won't hurt you to take a balanced 3/6/9 supplement. It's folks who are consuming the standard American diet that really don't need to supplement. I take Udo's oil which is a 2:1:1 3/6/9 supplement, but I also take large doses of fish oil to really emphasize the omega-3s. In my experience, most docs don't have any advice to give regarding dietary supplements.
