Hoping this thread is one where people can share their knowledge of the oils they have researched, and how they convert to the recommended amounts of DHA and EPA.
Here are what I think are the recommended amounts we are supposed to get:
1.15 g EPA
48g unsaturated fat
How are we supposed to figure out how much DHA and EPA are in the oils of our choice? I see ALA and LA measured in grams on my oil, but not sure how to derive the other numbers of DHA and EPA to get the proper serving. I see others just using 3.25 g of Canola oil, does this have the proper ratios of DHA and EPA or is that lacking one or both of them?
My preferred oil to use is Udo 3-6-9 oil, which comes with 6G ALA and 3G LA per Tablespoon. But it’s a blend of many different kind of oils so not sure how to do the conversion.
I’m pretty sure that if I take around 4Tbsp of this oil per day I should be fine since it was carefully blended to have the right ratios, but sure would like to know the actual numbers for comparison.
