Omega3 fatty acids -> Canola Oil

Omega3 fatty acids -> Canola Oil

We already spend enough on supplements.

1 tablespoon of Canola Oil has aprox 1 gram of Omega3 fatty acids.
In fact those eggs that claim to have 100mg of Omega3 get that way becasue they feed Canola Oil to the chickens.

I buy a good brand like Wesson, I also tried the store brand from Kroger. The good stuff is relatively tasteless and you can drink it, the Kroger brand tastes like crap.

Are you sure about it really contains Omega3?

Usually vegetable oils contains the “pre” fatty acid to O3.
Linolensyra in Swedish, which would be linolicacid or something in Enghlish.

Most people can convert linolicacid to O3 but far from all have a sufficient function to do that.
Many people in northen Europe (Scandinavia) have problems with this and do much better on real O3 from coldwater animals like salmon, makrell, shrimps and such.

I eat raw coldwaterfish a couple of times a week to get O3 and first class protein.


OK Pan you are right, but it’s more complicated.
Plant sources have LNA which is a Omega 3 EFA
Our bodies convert LNA to DHA but the conversion ratio is low
DHA is what we want , So by eating fish you are getting a better source of O3, and your body doesn’t have to go through the conversion process.

I’m very new to veganism and searching around gives contradictory information. There are doctors who say veganism provides everything necessary and others who say it doesn’t. My specific question is: can a vegan process enough DHA? Opinions seem very divided?

Good question. Wish I could give you the “final answer”. Unfortunately, at this point, we aren’t really sure. What we do know is that vegans can process DHA, but whether or not the amount they process is optimal for human health is the big question. Vegans generally have significantly lower levels of DHA than nonvegetarians (well under half in most cases), and while dietary modification can improve DHA levels, it doesn’t bring it up to nonvegetarian levels unless a direct source of DHA is consumed. The actual conversion rate from LNA to DHA is approximately 2-5% (or less). To maximize conversion of DHA:

1. Reduce intake of omega-6 fatty acids (these come mainly from processed foods and omega-6-rich oils such as sunflower oil, safflower oil, corn oil, soy oil and grapeseed oil).
2. Limit intake of saturated fats and trans fatty acids (these reduce conversion).
3. Make most of your fat intake monounsaturated fats (olives, olive oil, canola oil, avocados, nuts and nut oils).
4. Include sufficient omega-3 fatty acids in the daily diet (flaxseeds, flaxseed oil, henpseed and hempseed oil, canola oil, walnuts, green leafy vegetables). For most adults 3-4 grams per day is a reasonable intake.
5. Eat a nutritious diet - poor intakes of energy, protein and certain vitamins and minerals can reduce conversion.

For anyone striving to maximize DHA status (e.g. pregnant and lactating women), I would strongly recommend a DHA supplement of 100-300 mg/day. There are a few plant-source (microalgae-based) DHA supplements available, although most come in gel caps. Keep your eyes open - there will be more DHA choices available soon.


One of the reasons Canola oil is high on the list is it has a good ratio of Omega 6 to Omega3s. I am presently taking 6 tablespoons a day so about 6 grams which is above the 3-4 grams above so I’m not in bad shape. (maybe not as good as I thought though)
Is a table showing content of Omega6/ LNA/EPA/DHA content of various foods.


thanks for the clarification, I read so much but only remember the general trend.

A question: what is canola oil??? Is there a seed, grain, nut or something that is called canola?

Oh well… might as well do a search on the net ;-)


whats the importance of omega3 or canola or DHA or any of these fatty acids to PE?

What does the word CANOLA stand for?
“Canola” is a combination of two words, Canadian and oil.

What is Canola?
Canola’s history goes back to the rapeseed plant, but canola and rapeseed are not the same. Canola and rapeseed have different chemical compositions, therefore the names cannot be used interchangeably. In 1970’s, Canadian plant breeders produced canola through traditional plant breeding techniques. The major differences are reduced levels of both glucosinolates (which contribute to the sharp taste in mustard and rapeseed) and licosenic and erucic acids (two fatty acids not essential for human growth) in Canola. “Canola” then, refers worldwide to varieties with two percent or less erucic acid in the oil and 30 micromoles per gram or less of the normally measured glucosinolates in the meal. Canada’s canola services major markets and is internationally recognized as the industry forerunner in terms of quality. In Canada, rapeseed is now only grown under special contract and is used for industrial purposes.

What does Canola look like?
Each canola plant grows anywhere from two thirds of a meter (two feet) to two meters
(six feet) tall and produces groups of yellow flowers which in turn, produce seed pods
about five centimeters (2 inches) long. Each pod turns brown as it ripens and contains
twenty or more tiny round black or brownish-yellow seeds. Each seed contains at least
40 percent oil and so canola is classed as an oilseed.


Nutritional recommendations
Dispite the early indications of healthy benefits of omega-3 from fish, it was the work of Bang and Dyerberg that initiated the “take-off” of omega-3. Since their discovery of the health benefits of marine omega-3 fatty acids, a huge amount of research has been carried out.

The most important omega-3 fatty acids are eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Up to now clinical research has resulted in more than 10 000 scientific publications worldwide, of which more than 3000 are clinical studies. This research confirms that EPA and DHA are essential fatty acids that are important for human development and health.While the recommended daily intake of polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acids should be in the range of 0.6 - 1 gram, a “normal” diet in the Western world only satisfies about 10-15 % of this requirement.

Deficiencies of essential polyunsaturated fatty acids may cause a wide range of symptoms, including retarded development in babies and children, reduced fertility and pathologic changes in the skin and the retina of the eye. DHA is particularly important for brain development. A normal adult brain contains more than 20 g of DHA!

Prophylaxis and treatment
It is today accepted by the medical society that omega-3 fatty acids lower serum triglyceride and are used as treatment of hypertriglyceridaemia. Omega-3 also reduces blood pressure and stabilises the rhythm of the heart. It lends itself for use both as a prophylaxis and as an adjunct treatment for cardiovascular disease. Clinical observation shows that omega-3 fatty acids reduces mortality with 20 % in heart attack patients and play an important role in preventing cardiovascular disease.

There is also growing appreciation for clinical documentation on the reduction of symptoms in patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis. A high dietary intake of marine omega-3 has been linked to a delay in the development of senile dementia. There have also been reports of positive effects in patients suffering from depression.

Recent scientific publications have reported positive effects on a number of other clinical conditions, including migraine, heart arrhythmia, mental cognition in adults and attention deficit/ hyperactivity disorder in children.


I try to stay away from sites that have something to sell because they tend to make claims that have no facts behind them. So the above may only touch on the basics. The most important thing about omega 3s are cardiovascular heallth. Tha means blood vessels and capillaries. We are working our penises and what’s it made up of? Blood vessels. There are a lot of small blood vessels down there we want to encourage blood flow and when we start having problems guess where it tends to show up 1st? In the penis.

Since we are working trying to increase the size of our tools we want to make sure we have good blood flow down there. “With the American Diet of lots of Red Meat, Hamburgers and Fries is it no wonder… “a “normal” diet in the Western world only satisfies about 10-15 % of this requirement”.. then is it any surprise millions of men develop ED problems in middle age and go on to develop heart attacks?

I”m sure there are other benefits too but those are the most important ones.

I would recommend flaxseed, flax oil or certain fatty fish over canola oil for Omega 3’s. Canola oil is not a healthy oil (mainly because of its unique processing).

Here is another view of canola oil:
