    Which do think is better?

    A Pill that has 1200mg of Omega 3 Fish Oil

    or

    A Pill that has only 800mg of Fish Oil, but has 400mg of some of the Omega 6 and 9 fats.

    Both would be taken 3 times daily

    Oh and the Complex would cost a bit more:

    Fish Oil Only - 400ct. for $10
    Omega Complex - 240ct. for $12

    whoa, yall surprised me. I thought yall would be more for the complex. Ceaze, im pretty sure i dont get enough omega 6 in my diet like you say. I'm thinking about just switching back and fourth on them.

    Here is the exact specs on the complex

    Natural fish oil 800mg

    Borage Seed Oil 50mg

    Flaxseed Oil 150mg

    Safflower Oil 200mg

    these are the exact 2 I'm comparing. Oh and it was 1000mg for the fishoil, not 1200mg, my bad.

    Most western diets apparently have a ratio of 20:1 of omega 6's to omega 3's in their diet when ideal is somehwere closer to 3:1.

    More likely to get it from tuna than fishoil from salmon.
