I originally posted this under an apparent dead thread. Any insight would be appreciated...

I understand that EPA and DHA are the made properties that you are supposed to look at when calculating your Omega-3 dosage, right? What are other omega-3s, and should we caluclate them? Thanks.

Re: Omega-3s

Ignore them is my opinion unless they are making up a huge part of the total omega-3's. Could be anything from added ingredients such as soy or flax seed oil to various other parts of the fish oil.

Re: Omega-3s

I'm not sure how many servings are in that thing, but I'm thinking that it is WAY too expensive...

Re: Omega-3s

Price aside, what about the other Omega-3s?

What about them? More than EPA/DHA in n fish. As long as you are getting a good dose of EPA and DHA per serving don't worry about it.
