    I take supplements which include Evening Primrose oil as I have pains in my hands caused by carpal tunnel (and I worry about my intake to calcium as take very little milk) but I don't syn them. I wonder should I syn them?

    1 tsp is 2 syns, cod liver oil, but i dont think there is a whole teaspoon in a capsule, but it would soon add up if you were taking a couple plus evening primrose oil or any others

    Thank you, I will add ½ a syn I think, there is not only about half a teaspoon in both the evening primrose and cod liver oil I should think.
