    All depends on your whole diet and other sources of healthy fats and EFAs you have in there.

    What tio said if you have no other source of omega-3 fat in your diet. Do you eat any oily fish or fish oil caps, or flaxseed oil or caps?

    I have fish oil caps to hand which are 1000 mg - 18% EPA / 12% DHA. I'd prefer takin the flax seed as the mains source rather than the fish oil caps but don't mind supplementing a few of these a day if necessary. Only occasionly eat oily fish, few times a month maybe. What would you reccomend nige, gaz?
