Why do I need omega3 and 6 if I am taking fish oil capsules.
I am on blood pressure medication, and have been told to take one baby aspirin per day. Is there any reason that it would be unwise for me to take fish oil because of this?
Just a response to Mary, Omega3 and Omega 6 are both found in fish oil capsules.
I just recently came across this website after deciding to go with Fish Oil to help with my coronary system. I have suffered five heart attacks and having two stent implants, I took the advice of a doctor and purchased a bottle of NatureMade "Burbless" 1200mg Softgels. After reading several postings here, I got the bottle out of the cabinet and looked to see what I had actually purchased. Out of 1200mg total, only approximately 500mg are EPA and DHA acids. There are 120mg of "other fish oils" counted and 2400mg of Fish Oil Concentrate.
These numbers started to confuse me just a bit until I looked up the label and saw the other things that were offered with these capsules. Listed are Saturated Fat, Polyunsaturated Fat, Monounsaturated Fat, with 25mg of Cholestrol. Isn't all of these items bad for your heart? According to several Cardiologists in two different states that attended to me through five MI's and two main arteries having 98% blockage in The Widowmaker(LAD) and 100% blockage in The Right Coronary Artery, these doctors told me not to consume these particular things.
I am now shopping for more healthy fish oil to make my life better.
Thanks for the info guys.
