I always like to see the research on this stuff. http://www.nutraingredients.com/Research/Omega-3-review-Half-a-gram-needed-for-heart-benefits


Great read.

half a gram doesn't seem like too much ... some capsules contain one gram or more each (I take 10-15 grams per day).

I take Spectrum, which supposedly filtered for heavy metals and stuff. Plus it is quite concentrated with 1000mg combined EPA and DHA per two pills. I am taking 8 pills per day! Trying to see if it will let me reduce my steriod use a notch.

Dr-A - how convinced are you about the helpfulness of L-Glut? And what about pyridoxal alpha-ketoglutarate? Never heard of that one.

How much DHA do you get out of the two caps? Wouldn't that be 4 g total if two pills = 1000 mg, and you are taking 8 pills?

I'll tackle that other question when I get a second.

I got into talking about my UC with a doctor who was doing a nutritional seminar and he recommended a product from another company that had l-glut. I started looking at the ingredients for this and the main difference was the inclusion of Pyridoxal alpha-ketoglutarate (PAK). Started looking into why they use it, and it helps with absorption and recylcing of L-glut. Suppose to help with build up of glutamate too. PAK is one form of B-6. Took me awhile to find a company that sold a tab that had 500 mg of this stuff but I did, and take that when I do the powder. I could have saved myself alot of trouble and just ordered the original product that had the two together (1500 mg L-Glutamine and 500 mg PAK), but its cheaper my way, lol.

I think it has helped. I haven't had the bad spring flare up as usual.

Sorry, I was wrong. These Spectrum pills have 360mg of EPA and 240mg of DHA per 2-pill serving. In my 8 pills per day, I am getting almost 4g of polyunsaturated fat, but only 2.5g of DHA/EPA combined.

So many supplements to try! Turmeric, Omega 3/6, L-Glutamine, Probiotics, Bromelain, Boswellia, aloe vera juice, bee propilis, pyridoxal alpha-ketoglutarate. Is a lot of pills to take an a lot of money to spend. But, if they lower my pred...

Have you guys seen Minamins? Custom vitamins for various aliments. For UC, they put in Tumeric, L-Glut and Bromelain (plus fiber, probiotic, B6).

Should try the Carlsons stuff when you run out. The super DHA formula with 1 cap has 1 g fish oil with 5:1 DHA to EPA ratio. Which is huge in comparison to most others.

Can't find anything on minamins?? Have a web addy? I am still experimenting on Capsicum too. Can't figure out how to take it without pooping fire, lol.
