    does anyone know if omacor (it'a an rx brand) is comparable to omega 3 efa's? i'm asking because it would be far cheaper to have an rx than to buy so many bottles a month. just wondering if anyone has any info on this.

    it sounds as if omacor was put out more for chol levels. does it work for imflammation also? i'm taking omega's for fibro and it has worked. i don't want to rock the boat but if they are comparable and all then it would be great to save some money on them ;)

    As I understand it one has to get the right balance between the Omega Acids. When we eat a great diet full of fruit and veggies, 6 to 3 ratio is something like 20 to 1 instead of the 6 to 1 that is meant to be good balance. So whatever will correct your baance I guess. Storm may know or MMe Cirrie.
