Nice link.

Now the researchers simply have to try to separate out which part of the CLO had the "most" effect--A, D, EPA, DHA, or total omega-3s...the stupid thing is that they would likely use synthetic versions to try to comparatively test against the CLO "components". Bah.

I experience upset stomach side-effect of CLO, especially if taken in the morning. Start with a lower dose and not in the mornings or is it a mutter of brand or something else?

Could be brand, could be that you simply need to take it with food.

also I believe that they both use some of the same enzymes....so actually people using NSAIDs will not get real relief from taking fish oil unless they lower or remove the NSAIDs all together....just something I remember reading about a long time ago.....

This is really interesting stuff.

I'd been taking Fish Oil in high doses for month's although the benefits were there according to Dr Sear's Eicosanoid Status Report and my athletic improvements, I never really "felt" that much better.

I get mild S.A.D and in the UK the good weather can be sporadic to say the least so I started taking Vitamin D as a stand alone. No difference (yes, turns out the Vit D was synthetic).

This last week I've added CLO into the mix and already I "feel" much better. Better sence of wellbeing, better sleep etc.

Currently I've stopped Fish Oil supplementation, but is there any benefit to taking this as well as the CLO to up the n3 ratios?

Great Vitamin D article by the way Garrett - interesting part about needing to sunbathe between 10am and 2pm to get enough Vit D via sunlight exposure.

Chris,
Great observation.

One can absolutely take them both. Depending on the type of CLO one gets (high or low in EPA/DHA), it might be necessary.

The 10am - 2pm exposure time is interesting. Being that I'm really pale and I live in Tucson (32 degrees latitude), I definitely get a bit burned if I'm out much during the 10 - 2 hours. I spend a significant amount of time in the sun in the earlier morning (before 10) and often in the afternoon (after 3) and I don't get burned at all that way. I take 2000iu of CLO vit. D a day on top of any sun exposure I can manage. Here's hoping it's enough!

In autumn/winter I take 10ml of regular Seven Seas cod liver oil a day to ensure I'm getting enough vitamin D and in spring/summer I switch to pure fish oil so I'm not overdosing on it when it's sunny.

Dr G, would the daily dose of CLO you take be pretty close to what you would recommend for most people? I was reading on the Weston A. Price site that you could go even higher than that, up to 90,000IUs vit A for a few weeks if you were dealing with stress and/or some type of illness.

I just ordered some Green Pastures Blue Ice Therapeutics Gold in Cinnamon Tingle, never tried it before but it sounded good. It's much higher in A&D than what i use now, plus it's cheaper and will last longer!
