With your omega-3 pills you might want to consider flaxseed oil in the future. Its got omega’s 3, 6 & 9. Its actually more important to get the ratio’s right rather than just heaps of one. But at least you have it in there, i find essential oils are a great sup.

Totally disagree with this.
Modern diets already contain way too much omega 6 & 9 and small quantities of omega 3. Omega 3 is lacking is everyones diet.

Also, flax seed oil is very poorly converted into DHA/EPA by the body. IIRC the conversion rate is something like 7%, and thats only if all the required thing are present for conversion to take place.
