... Eating fish (salmon) 1-2 times a week might help some. I wouldn't eat fish too much, due to mercury issues, however. I believe you can get relatively clean Alaskan salmon though. The brands of fish oil I personally like are Nordic Naturals (high concentrate, lemon flavored) and Carlson's liquid. I usually stick with the Carlson's due to price issues and it's easier to...

... If it is simply to enhance your health, then yes, 6 per day would be a HUGE amount. But if you are trying to lower your Triglycerides, taking 3000 mg of Omega 3's is what is recommended. So that would be 5 per day for your pills. ... (23 replies)
... Hi everyone... I am a 39 year old woman that has been fighting cholesterol for a few years now. I have been off statins for about 8 months or so, as they caused me terrible muscle pains that I am STILL recovering from. Anyway, after much research I decided to try natural supplements. I have been taking these natural supplements (19 pills per day) since Feb. 1 of this... (8 replies)
... Hi Stenolady, It's great that your doctor would recommend fish oil capsules. Most doctors just push increase statin doses. There is a Prescription purified form of Omega-3 fish oil, it's called LOVAZA the name changed from OMACOR. This is the highest quality pharmaceutical blend.

... Eat more calories than your body needs. I pretend to be a weight lifter so was trying to bulk and ate about 3000- 4000 calories a day and I think that's what pushed me over so much. I know these rezults seem a bit too good to be true but my diet directly before my first test was really bad for 2 weeks and from the day I got my results it's been the polar opposite. I must...

... Hi I have been taking 1500 mg of niacin in the morning and 1500 mg in the evening for about a year and a half now. Excellent cholesterol numbers especially the HDL which went up quite quite a bit after starting the niacin therapy. Started with 500 mg of niaspan ,then 1000 niaspan then 1500 plain niacin then up to the 3000. Very little flushing now . My latest... (9 replies)
... Maybe not in one month... but in 3 - 6 months, I achieved results that statins were never able to provide me in 7 years of taking them. I was never able to get below 210 on statins. Niacin, however, worked way better with not nearly as many side effects. My understanding is immediate release niacin will not hurt your liver... it's " Slo-Niacin " that has been proven to...
