I would like to give my stiff joints a bit of tlc and intend to take some omega oil supplements.

I can't find whether they have a syn value online though.

Please can anyone tell me whether I need to factor them into my 15 a day?

I'm not sure if you have to count "medicines" but would be under 0.5 syn I think. 1tsp/5ml/5g oil is 2 syns, so could work out from how many mg oil in your capsule . I think 1000mg would therefore be 0.4 syns.
