My eyes are dry, my scalp is flaky, and i'm ready to ditch the wal-mart brand tablets...

Anybody notice any noticeable differences by changing/starting up a new Omega 3 suppliment?

I'm a college student with no access to grass-fed so supplementation is pretty important in my case.

I recommend upping the dosage to 2-3 times that, at least for a week or two to see how you feel. It sounds like you aren't getting enough.

1400 mg liquid capsuls 2 times a day (triple strength (each tablet has 900mgs))so 1800 omega 3s total...plus I eat canned salmon a couple times a week.

How much are you taking? It sounds to me like you aren't getting enough. Maybe you need to up your dose considerably? Walmart brands are really low in EPA/DHA. I personally take 4,500mg a day. I use GNC's Triple strength.

NOW brand Neptune Krill Oil. I take 500 mg/ day since I don't eat enough fish regularly.

I have NO joint aches or pain when I supplement. I'm 49.

Canned sardines.

Frozen wild salmon.

Once you've moved to a pharmaceutical grade fish oil pill you'll be paying WAY more than if you'd just eat the fish.

If you have to get a supplement then the following are really good:

Omega Swirl Fish Oil: Best tasting by FAR. Highly absorbable.


Oceans 3 Beyond Omega: Contains a high dose of Astaxanthin.


Wholemega 1000 Mg: All natural pressed oil. Contains natural Astaxanthin.


Carlson Laboratories Super DHA: Highest levels of DHA per pill...

I like Coromega. Some people still hate the taste but it think it pretty nice, and no burps. Very convenient for travel too as (unless I'm missing something) they are almost impossible to spoil (vaccum sealed, opaque container, vitamin E mixed in).

ditch the fish oil supps & replace with oily fish.

& try adding some GLA (gamma linolenic acid) for the dry eyes (and skin), ie, from a good 'cold pressed' non-gmo evening primrose oil (ideally 10% gla, some are 8%).

(google - "gamma linolenic acid" "dry eye" - )

Carlson's Fish or Cod liver oil (lemon/orange naturally flavoured with beef gelatin capsules). Super!
