Hello Everyone, can someone tell me whats the difference between Fish Oil tablets (omega 3,6 & 9) Supplements and GLA (Gamma Linoleic Acid), i think is a omega 6 supplement. The fish oil tabs, has all 3 omega's but small amount of each, while GLA has a higher amount of fatty acids.

Which one should I consider or better yet, which one are you using for your Omega intake? Thanks in advance

I think...think...don't quote me on this...but the omega 6 and 9's can be made naturally in the body, so really all you need is the 3's. Something like that

Hello Jason, if the body makes it, its probably a small amount needing supplement to have a decent amount of it. Thank
