    I hope they clarify the difference between Omega-3 from flaxseed oil versus fish. No mercury in flaxseed, no issues with overfishing. Is it the same stuff ??

    David Carradine was first in this particular celeb-trinity, surely? He was death by masturbation and Mickey J. OD’d – I don’t think even a swimming pool full of fish oil could have prevented those deaths…

    I think June has just been a bad month to be a celebrity. 5 dead, and the month isn’t over.

    Omega 3 oils from fish are different to those from flax. Fish oils contain DHA and EPA while flax contains alpha -linolenic acid. If you are vegetarian get the omega 3 oils derived from algae (which is where the fish get the oils) from not from flax.

    Oddly this trial will use 2000IU a day, a value already shown to be to low for some illnesses. The greatest effect on MS was seen at 14000IU a day and after a year there was no signs of any overdose. Do they want it to fail.

    Why would any study of D3 (chloecalciferol) be restricted to only 2000 i.u. per day? This amount is insufficent to maintain a blood level of activated D3 of 50 ng/ml. The EXPERTS (those who have spent decades studying D3) recommend at least 5000 i.u. and even more in the fall and winter.

    Anyone who has supplemented with D3 knows of the difference this compound makes in EVERY aspect of normal life. Simply stated when I supplemented with D3 within 48 hours EVERYTHING in my body felt better. After 3 months my resting pulse when from 72 to 61. BP-always healthy- dropped 5/3. Joint pain: Gone. Blues: Gone. Muscle strength: up 15-18%. Gums stopped bleeding. Cholestreol dropped from 210 to 167 and I eat anything and everything loaded with such stuff.

    Vitamin D3 supplementation is the single most important health issue in the U.S. and for that matter the world outside of the tropics

    PERIOD!

    Within 5 years activated D3 will be recognized as this generation’s miracle drug equal or exceeding antibiotics in theraputic value. I already know this to be factual based on irrefutable reports of “grey ” studies yet to be released – pending peer review.

    Everyone needs to supplement D3 and do so immediately. 50 ng/ml serum concentration gives virtual immunity to EVERYTHING that kills the modern man.

      I agree. I was stunned when I last had my cholesterol and HDL checked. After 2 years on vitamin D the levels are now almost too good to be true. Have also modified my diet as well but do not believe diet alone could have resulted in such levels.

    If you are interested in vitamin D you should take a look at http://www.vitaminD3world.com The site has good summaries of the data and offers a new preparation of vitamin D in a micro-pill formulation. The pills have been formulated with cellulose which absorbs water very quickly. This ensures that the pill breaks up very quickly to provide for maximum absorption. The micro pill is tiny and tasteless. Many vitamin D pills on the market have very poor dissolution properties resulting in poor absorption.
    The site also offers to supply customers with a free supply of 400IU for their children and it also has a good newsletter.
    best regards

    I had my cholesterol checked and my triglycerides were 363 and by HDL was down to 40.

    Getting old doesn’t have to be hell but after 40 you do have to supplement.

    the other very concerning aspect of the Vital trial is that fish oil contains variable amounts of vitamin A and we know this may counteract the effects of vitamin D. To test two experimental agents at the same time is bad science and they have managed to find possibly the one molecule on the planet that is best not combined with vitamin D to test- stunningly stupid. As someone else said on this board “do they want to fail”

    You can actually get UVB lamps that generate small levels of vitamin D. It's the treatment for seasonal affective disorder. I've read lots of great studies about vitamin D recently. When research from New Zealand just showed that on a diet, the higher the baseline level of vitamin D, the more weight subjects lost over time.
