My ASD son has auto-antibodies to neuro philaments in his brain, which means inflammation. We've used the EPA Xtra in combination with Cod Liver Oil to help reduce the inflammation, as EPA is known as an anti-inflammatory fatty acid. My son is progressing, so I hope it is working!
Not all fish oils are created equal - giving this a try for Type IV hypertriglyceridemia

I got this for my Mum recently who has Type IV familial hypertriglyceridemia - runaway triglycerides, high VLDL, low LDL, low HDL. She had several attacks of pancreatitis in the late 1980s-90s and has been on liver- and kidney-damaging fenofibrates and statins since. Side effects include Diabetes 2 and hypertension. Fifteen months ago, she had a "minor" stroke. Suffice to say, it hasn't been a fun ride. She used to take prescription fish Omacor but I've been wondering about the efficacy of ethyl esters. Research has shown that a 4:1 ratio of EPA to DHA is optimal for hypertriglyceridemia. She's also taking citrus flavones and palm tocotrienols Sytrinol. It's been months of adjusting and fine-tuning of dosages with more frequent cholesterol and liver function tests. The idea is to slowly wean her off her conventional meds or at least take reduced dosages. Hope this rings a few bells for anyone reading this. Be self-empowered to do your own research. Good luck!
My choice for high EPA needs.

Great taste and the right ratio that I was looking for with EPA vs DHA

Every winter my son gets rough patches on his skin. We always joke that he's turning into a crocodile. This winter we've had none of that dry, scaly, itchy skin at all. Not a single patch. This product has worked wonders!

I pick this product because I read that this proportion of EPA : DHA helps to focus better. The lemon taste is refreshing! I introduce this product to a few friends and they all like it.
