The ratio of EPA to DHA really depends on what you are using the omega 3 for.
If you are after an omega 3 supplement just to complement your diet
(ie you dont eat 2 serves of fish per week) then you are looking at
1.5 EPA to every DHA.
If you are using omega 3 to improve joint health (ie arthritis) then
the ratio is 4.5EPA:1DHA.
Omega three to improve heart health then the ratio is 2EPA:1DHA
Omega three to assist brain performance then the ratio is 1EPA:5DHA
hope this helps?
