Very true, Bret. You need to be sure that the supplements you are taking are from algae and don't contain any gelatin or other animal products.

Well, I bought those algae-derived DHA capsules at Walgreen's today. The capsule is made of gelatin, and they cost 46 cents/capsule. Each capsule has 300 mg of DHA, so one/day is about right. 46 cents/day for all the benefits is not a bad deal, but I'd be all in favor of paying less.
Well, back to what I read quite a while ago. It seems we're all different in our ability to convert ALA to DHA. Here are the studies:
Taking one of the algae-derived capsules per day, is equivalent to eating a can of sardines every three days. That would be 300 mcg/day of DHA. I think that's good enough.
