Using chlorella, wheatgrass, algae as sub for fish oil
I was wondering if anybody had any idea of how much chlorella, wheatgrass, or blue-green algae would have to be ingested to equal the amount of EPA/DHA in fish oil.
I've read before that is where the EPA/DHA comes from in fish oil and it's also probably where it comes from in grass fed meat and eggs in the grasses ( besides bugs ).
I've yet to try wheatgrass juice but I caught myself staring at it in the store in one of those lil bunches that you can grow at home tonight ( or attempt to maintain ).
Thoughts? I've taken chlorella or blue-green algae and some other green foods and besides disgusting my roomates haven't seen or had any issues with them. It makes for some flavorful concoctions but perhaps I just don't mind it ( especially when mixed with pureed fruits or veggies ). Actually blended veggies tend to have a much sharper taste anyways.
I've been meaning to get these green superfoods back in me. I've been trying to eat my veggies being red and romaine lettuce, spinach, brocolli/cauliflower, celery and carrots, green peas. Well, that's about it besides cilantro and onions. I haven't ventured into many other vegetables just cause it's daunting enough to just eat these.
I did find these Omega 3 algae caps and they looked pretty expensive considering how much EPA/DHA is in 3 caps ( 270mg DHA/75mg EPA ).
