I was watching TV and saw an ad for a new Omega 3 drug from GlaxoSmithKline called Lovaza -- it's FDA approved to treat triglycerides. This is copied straight from their website:
LOVAZA Is Purified and Concentrated
* LOVAZA uses a 5-step purification process that helps remove mercury and other environmental toxins that can be present in fish oil * Each 1-gram capsule of LOVAZA contains 465 mg EPA and 375 mg DHA. EPA and DHA are the active fatty acids proven to lower very high triglycerides * The FDA-approved dose of LOVAZA is 4 capsules per day. It could take up to 14 capsules per day of an omega-3 supplement to provide the same amount of active ingredients proven to lower very high triglycerides
The funniest part is a 1-gram capsule of Flameout has 220 mg EPA and 550 mg DHA; and I'm betting it costs a whole lot more then $27!!
