    Dry Vites

    Hi,

    I was reading the ingredients for Dry Vites and it was labeled as follows:

    Serving size: 3 softgels; Servings per container: 40; Amount per serving: Salmon Oil 1,000 mg (EPA 80 mg, DHA 120 mg); Vitamin E 2.5 IU; Flaxseed Oil cold pressed 500 mg (Omega-3 250 mg, Omega-6 75 mg).

    I donít totally understand how that 1000mg of Salmon Oil and EPA 80mg and DHA 120mg fits in.

    Are those 80mg and 120mg in addition to the 1000mg, or that 1000mg of Salmon Oil contributes or is equivalent to 80mg and 120mg of EPA and DHA?

    Similarily for the Flaxseed Oil.

    Thanks,
    Snow_Queen

    Snow_queen - my apologies, I saw this awhile back and sent an email to the supplier and then forgot all about it. Here is the response:

    Basically the amount of EPA and DHA listed is per 1000mg of
    Salmon Oil. So it is a ratio and a percentage. The rest is a
    fish oil base. You can titrate the amount of overall
    DHA/EPA you want/need based on how you respond to its consumption.
    Start off with 1 to 2 capsules a day and some of my patients
    find they need 4 capsules a day. I do not have anyone who takes more than
    4 capsules a day. The same applies to the flaxseed oil as well.
