What is the recommended intake in mg/day of DHA/EPA to improve skin health, elasticity, and memory?

Dear MS,

The recent research (news item) on our website for October 1st, 2007 provides information on a recently-published study employing DHA/EPA supplementation for the improvement of arterial elasticity. The daily dose in this 8-week study was 900mg per day of DHA/EPA (combined). If you would insert 'skin' in the search box on our home page, you will get a summary of some of the studies performed to date on DHA/EPA omega-3 in relation to skin. Insertion of 'aging' in the search box will bring you to the Zutphen Elderly Study where fish/omega-3 consumption was studied in relation to cognitive decline over a 5 year period.
