> On a bottle of fish oil extract that you find in your local health food store, there will be a listing of the amount (in grams) of each of the essential fatty acids is in "one serving" (note that this may be defined to be two pills, for example). The relevant fatty acids are eicosapentanoic acid (EPA) and docosahexanoic acid(DHA). You want to take enough pills to get effective doses of these -- I *believe* that EPA is the one that's really important, but I'm not positive.

Hi Elizabeth

I bought the ones without the breakdown info in the plain packaging because they were much cheaper, so I'll just have to stop being lazy and check out the other brands for the info!

Why do you believe that EPA is more important?
