Does anyone know how to calculate the GLA's in a product if it doesn't list it on the label?
I was looking at Beeyoutiful's Omega 3.6.9 and this is what it says:

"Each serving may typically provide the following naturally occurring fatty acids:
Omega-3: Fatty Acids: 690 mg (EPA: 72 mg, DHA: 48 mg)
Omega-6: Fatty Acids: 600 mg (EPA: 72 mg, DHA:48 mg)
Omega-9: Fatty Acids: 420 mg"

Does DHA count towards any of the EPA or GLA count?

I don't think I am supposed to be getting all my GLA's from EPO,
so I was hoping the Omega 3.6.9 would have some of the GLA's.

Beeyoutuful is NOW relabeled.  If you check this link
http://www.iherb.com/Now-Foods-Super-Omega-3-6-9-1200-mg-180-Softgels/325?at=0
 you will see the GLAs.  I believe this is a misprint on their label.  You might want to contact their customer service and let them know.
