Six years ago I was pregnant with my son and was told to take omega three as it was good for the memory and concentration of the fetus.

I was also advised to only take the omega 3 that had been plant derived since the fatty fish oils can also contain alot of toxins.

I hope this info helps someone out there .

kind regards.

I don't know if it's coincidence or not, but I had my over-active, lacking-in-attention son on Cod Liver Oil containing kids' vitamins for a while and now make sure that I give him fish 3 times a week, and I swear that he has settled down and concentrates better. Of course, he could just be growing up, but at least I know he's eating well...

Done my research on it, it seems the brand 0M3 has the highest content of the most important compound in OMEGA 3 capsules and cheapest over all choices in pharmacies on the CDA including the product's own site. User for nearly 3 years, I really swear by them.Cheapest is about 30 euros for a box of 3 boxes (10 Euros/box/month intake for regular dosage) found at the parapharmacy in the Nice Etoile shopping mall on Jean Medecin Av in Nice.Or about the same price maybe a couple Euros higher in the Anglo-Franco Pharmacy in Cannes on rue d'Antibes. Pharmacy prices in the area vary greatly, usually they run about 30 Euros a box in other pharmacies... 3 times price of these 2 pharmacies.Info on OM3 is here: www.isodisnatura.co.uk OMEGA 3 prevents: emotional lows, cardiovascular diseases, lung diseases, joint/bone diseases. The above site gives all in detail plus explaining which compound is most important.Good luck!

Omega 3 is a type of unsaturated fat. Examples are decosahexanoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentanoic acid (EPA). Your body can make these fats but it is a slow process. These fats help to reduce the stickiness of the blood, thin the blood, protect the walls of blood vessels and research shows they may have a role in treating depression. Oily fish is the richest source of omega 3 fats. The omega 3 content depends on the fish, mackerel containing the most (2,500mg per 100 grams). If you eat oily fish regularly you will not need a dietary supplement. If you don't eat oily fish regularly a dietary supplement may be required to meet your needs. However, the FDA recommend that you shouldn't exceed 2grams (2,000mg) per day from a dietary supplement - you should always check the label before taking such supplements.

I use and can recommend this site. I'm not sure if they're the cheapest but they're very efficient.
