    I've known JB for a number of years now so I shot him an email to get his opinion on what Laura should be doing right now in terms of brand and dosing.

    I thought I'd share the recommendations in case anyone else is curious.

    Main points

    • Molecularly distilled product
    • Omega Extra Strength
    • Omega 3, 6, 7, 9
    • Both in liquid (as opposed to soft gels)
    • During the final month of pregnancy and the first month after giving birth, Omega Joy to help prevent post-pardum depression
    • 2 tsp per day is a pretty good prescription
    • Cycle between the Omega Extra Strength and the Omega 3, 6, 7, 9 for the duration of the pregnancy
    • Final month and the month after make sure 1 of the 2 daily tsp is the Omega Joy

    Genuine Health is the company that makes these products - he has seen their quality control and research data so he's comfortable making this brand recommendation. He does say there are of course other good brands out there, but he's not seen data, so he's just recommending what he knows for sure.

    I noticed the Omega Extra Strength doesn't come in liquid, but the liquid for the regular Omega is stronger dosed than the capsules, so that must be the product.

    Good info. This is one supplement I made sure of taking during my whole pregnancy (still taking it now postpartum).

    An EFA supplement tipped heavily in favour of EPA I believe.

    Is that a brand name? Where do you get it? Is it a liquid? I confused.

    What about Vit A content in the fish oils? My dr told me to beware of fish oils because they have a lot of vit A in them naturally.

    Cod liver oil yes, but not standard fish oils (ie wild salmon)

    Isn't cod liver oil what parents used to make their kids take back in the day? Yuck! What does it do for you anyway?

    I have a question - Omega Joy only comes in capsules. How much should be taken?

    No, it also comers in a liquid.

    See the Genuine Health Website for more information.

    If I click the link I just gave, it takes me RIGHT to the page listing the liquid, right below the soft gels.
