View Full Version : Looking for good fish oil research/reviews
12-15-2009, 12:11 PM
I've been tasked with researching fish oil for a new product. For those of you who have good links set aside, please feel free to share. I need ones that have lists of studies with them.
Particularly in the area of higher DHA to EPA ratios...
Thanks in advance for helping me save some time.

While I have a healthy mistrust of many Wikipedia articles, I would probably start with the the notes and references listed on their omega 3 article (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Omega_3#Notes_and_references) (WFS).
Good luck in your research. I'm always interested in learning more about the effects of fish oil (and vitamin D).

FWIK, the Ascenta fish oil has the most EPA/DHA for your buck. At least I think that's what I remember.
Frank Morel did some research on this and I think he is now selling the Ascenta ( I don't think it's for profit and I think he's buying it in bulk but can't be sure ).

There's a huge number of studies relating to dietary fats referenced in Dietary Reference Intakes for Energy, Carbohydrate, Fiber, Fat, Fatty Acids, Cholesterol, Protein, and Amino Acids. (http://www.nap.edu/catalog.php?record_id=10490) (aka The Macronutrient Report) starting on page 515 (http://books.nap.edu/openbook.php?record_id=10490&page=515).
And here's a few of my more recent finds that may prove useful.

I think these may be slightly more relevant to your research than the studies I've already posted links to.
Effects of an open-label pilot study with high-dose EPA/DHA concentrates on plasma phospholipids and behavior in children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. (http://ukpmc.ac.uk/articlerender.cgi?artid=1069868) Note: this is some actual research from Barry Sears!
