That _is_ a lot of fish oil, is it helping? Again, since most people don't need such high doses, but I assume you're feeling better with it, I'd want to look into why this is what your body needs (and like Wuwei said, YAY! for looking into this pre-TTC, I was clueless back then, totally clueless).
I've talked to a scientist who believes this dose is closer to what moms should be taking who are having children and nursing back to back. This is totally my thing and I'm just being cautious with getting enough omegas for me, nursling, and hopefully baby to be. THere's a lot on the net about 9 grams of omega 3 being the theraputic dose for lots of health problems.
|I'd also consider a prenatal (or multivit) with real folate instead of folic acid. In the US, Thorne is an easy one to get, it's available online a lot, not sure if you can get Thorne online. Real folate is good for everyone, folic acid is okay for most people, but some people (probably those who need it most) don't convert it well into folate that your body can use.
I get cracks in the corners of my mouth when I slack of my prenatals, so I'm thinking that's b related. Whether I have folate issues I'm not sure. I will look into that prenatal, but I really love mine. It has lots of chelated minerals, calcium/mag, that I would have to probably supplement most other prenatals. It's six huge pills a day, so they are really packed.
