If you are on the 17 Day Diet, the 10-15 grams 3 x a day is only for 1 – 2 months. You typically see a large amount of fat loss because insulin sensitivity is greatly improved, and then you back down to 5 grams 3x a day. that equates to 25$ every 5 weeks. Which I admit is still pricey, but is worth it in my opinion. I can only suggest you try the 17 Day Diet and determine that for yourself. If we are so deficent in them the effects will be greater with initial low supplementation and rise until some point of saturation. 17 Day Diet and Fish Oil Why? because fish oil is used for a large host of functions.

It’s about those 2 acids directly, which used to be in heavy abundance in our food supply 2+ centuries ago but now is nearly devoid due to current farming practices. The “rat studies” are studying gene expression and other cellular functions, not the body as a whole so they are actually quite applicable, as cells function nearly identical regardless of the species they are in. They go into great detail about omega-3’s positive effects on fat burning and fat storing. As far as the immune effects, I am not surprised. Just last year a law suit was filed against 10 of the top selling brands including gnc, cvs, and twinlabs, for contamination of pcbs and mercury, which are known to be very toxic. It’s why I always stress quality, and in the studies I provided, the type of oil is specified. I’ve always been a big supporter of carlson’s because they are known for their quality, I know others exist, but am not as familiar with them. I looked at the study your article referenced, and the oil was not referenced, so who knows what generic kind they used. His Triglycerides on the other hand are perfectly fine, which indicates that although he has high total cholesterol, he doenst have fatty blood.

So first of all you need to check whether or not your insurance covers and and how expensive a VLDL test is. CRP and the “usual” LDL test should be pretty cheap though.
