Krill Oil -Omega 3
 
I have been doing a bit of research on MegaRed Omega-3 Krill Oil. I would like to add Omega-3 to my custom foods. But, I can't find the nutritional data for this supplement. I have been putting Omega-3 at 100% of the vitamin D section in the custom foods option. But, I don't think that is correct.

Can anyone help?

I don't think there is a breakdown for omega-3s (EPA and DHA) and omega-6s. They are PUFA, so I guess just enter the amount as PUFA (PUFA is polyunsaturated fatty acid) which will show up not as the amount of krill oil in mgs but the amount of omega3s in mgs. This is my suggestion.

Research on omega-3 fatty acids is ongoing in several health areas. Doctors recommend fish consumption as a good source of omega-3 fatty acids.For those people who cannot eat fish or don’t like fish, fish oil supplements with high levels of EPA and DHA are excellent alternatives. The American Health associations and World Health organization recommends for healthy adults a minimum of 300-500 mg of EPA and DHA daily. If you have a history of Heart disease with you or your family they recommend 1-4 grams a day of EPA and DHA. Krill oil has less than 110 mg in each capsule! Also, the cheap regular "fish oil" only has 350 mg in one of those huge pills. Check out Ocean Blue Omega-3 it has 1050 mg of the clinically proven Omega-3's in one capsule.

Don't believe the marketing hype of krill oil! See for yourself and read the labels and see how much EPA and DHA are present.

It is not the amount of "fish oil" or "krill oil" that matters but the amount of EPA and DHA that give you the health benefits. Also, remember that Omega-3's such as EPA and DHA have anti-inflammatory benefits in your body while Omega-6's are pro-inflammatory. You have to keep a balance. Most people eat so much Omega-6 in their diet that there is absolutely no need to supplement an Omega-6.

I started with Mega Red and switched over to Krill Doctor Professional 1200 mg . It seems to be more powerful and working better for me.
