Jarrow Formulas Omega Balance - The only widely available reasonably priced EFA supplement with a decent ratio of DHA/EPA to GLA (11:1). Still less than the ideal 20:1 to 40:1 ratio, but a lot better than the usual omega GLA EPA supplements which are in the range of 1:1 to 2:1, including way too much GLA compared to EPA for long term use. Omega Balance fish oil is now molecularly distilled to exclude heavy metals, as all EPA fish oil supplements should be. See the EFA Supplement Section for more information.

Controlled Labs White Blood contains arginine and ornithine ethyl esters, which are compounds of these supplements which are particularly well absorbed and utilized by the body. Arginine and ornithine are used for HGH release regimens as well as to boost nitric oxides in the blood (the principal action of Viagra, but White Blood does it without potentially harmful side effects). While the usual recommended dosage of plain arginine or ornithine to achieve these goals can be very high (as much as 10g at a time), White Blood performs the same function with as little as 3 capsules. White Blood is highly recommended since in addition to the amino acid ethyl esters it also contains antioxidants to decrease the potential of increased oxidation from the increased nitric oxide levels in the blood.
