Q. from Ed: Dr. Costa, do you take fish oil yourself?
A. from Dr. Costa
Yes Ed, I absolutely do. The benefits to taking omega-3s are numerous. Personally, I take an omega-3 daily for cardiovascular, eye, brain and joint health and have for many years. Beyond that, I recommend a fish oil supplement for nearly 75% of my patients, depending of course on their personal cases.
