hi ,

I'm wondering is it useful/harmful to take omega-3 fish oil 3 times (1200 mg) daily for chronic HBVers ?

Thanks

no it is not harmful it is a must, but the quality and concentration of epa and dha must be very high at 2-3g daily (fish oil quantity is not useful check epa/dha), most products are scam with very low dha/epa so useless.they must be filtered for metals otherwise they are dangerous because sea is all poluted

check older posts and you find best brands

these are the best brands with the most quantity of dha/epa, you have to reach about 2g daily to have an effect so just comapre:

this has 2.7g epa+dha

this has 0.87g epa+dha and i take 3 pills daily which makes 2.6g

do you take epa+dha even with heptech?
There is Polyenylphosphatidylcholine I thought (probably wrongly) it is more or less the same as Omega 3

yes i do

Polyenylphosphatidylcholine and omgea3 fish oils are different things

fish oils have shown on studies to reduce overall inflammation and fatty liver, i just saw a study few days ago on a big amount of people _(general population, no diseases) and long time showing an increase of life of about 2,2 years
