Thank you LG1. I will certainly try your suggestion! May I suggest to you the small cans of fish? I buy small tins of mackerel, herring trout, sardines oysters etc and we put on our salad a few times/ week. Very easy and tasty.

Both Nordic Naturals - Omega-3 Phospholipids and Dr. Mercola's krill product (which you need to be very rich to afford) list phospholipids as a separate ingredient and the DHA in both of these products is docosahexaenoic acid which is the same ingredient found in all omega 3 supplements. I question whether these products have what Rhonda is talking about, the phospholipid form of DHA.

Responding to LG1 and agreeing with Josiah.

In this recent post I expressed worry about how much phospholipid-bound DHA is in the Nordic Naturals product. See also some of the following comments. The question is not yet resolved.

Next, in this recent post, I did a cost comparison of different sources of phospholipid-bound DHA. Results are surprising, and if approximately correct are useful.

I am taking Ultimate Omega from Nordic Naturals. 1 teaspoon a day. 2840 Mg . It seems that it is in triglyceride form and not phospholipid form that absorbs better with the E4 allele. I believe I bought a 3 month supply of the wrong kind.

Why do we need to choose one or the other? I take 2 fish and 2 krill caps daily, to hedge my bets. I know they are doing something when I notice my fingernails growing stronger and healthier.
