I take about 4500 mg a day - 1 T Arctic Naturals Omega 3 oil.  It makes a huge difference in my joint pain.  It lowers or get rid of all the pains that are caused by inflammation.  It's a lifesaver.  I also add GLA in the form of black current seed oil, 2000 mg per day, to help with dry eyes.   And the results don't take long to see - it you restarted it for a week, you would probably know if it made a difference or not.

Clinical trial evidence exists that supports a role for the omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids in coronary heart disease prevention. However, the results from these clinical trials have varied and were conducted in diverse population groups using several different types of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids.

I have taken 4 capsules per day for over 20 years. I can't state that they have helped me at all.

But there is some evidence suggests a role for fish oil (eicosapentaenoic acid, docosahexaenoic acid) or fish in secondary prevention because recent clinical trial data have demonstrated a significant reduction in total mortality, coronary heart disease death, and sudden death.

So I've stopped taking it. Much the same advice as taking 80 mg of Aspirin daily (not proven).

Ohiolady, borax doesn't seem to irritate my stomach.
Only use a tiny bit.  Lick clean finger & dip it into borax powder & use what sticks to finger with water.
Everyone is different as you know.
I'm sleeping so well I'm putting it down to the borax helping as it's the latest nutritional product I've tried.

Full time job helping ourselves isn't it!

I take CoQ10 since I now take a statin...heard it helps aid in the loss of CoQ10 that we lose when we take a statin, but I have read in some studies it can help aid in heart health...who knows, right?
