My dad is seeing an ND for numerous reasons. He suggested that my dad take around 2000-3000mg of DHA/EPA as an anti-inflammatory. My dad was going to get it from CLO, but he'd have to take an incredibly large dosage of it and then I'm a little bit hesitant of him ingesting all of those PUFAs. I remember there being some controversy over that on the native nutrition list.
Of course, add to that the issues with fish (mercury, declining ocean populations, etc) and the need for the large amount of even the HVCLO seems even less appealing.
Mercola suggests krill oil instead. Any thoughts on this? HVCLO for vit. A & D and krill oil for the DHA/EPA? Are there better sources?
