    kirkland brand, usually 3g a day but i've been slacking the last month or so. Gotta get back on it, especially since I've messed up joints twice in the last week.

    You need 2.7g+ of EPA/DHA a day to get the anti-inflammatory effects.

    Depends on the potency of the caps you take. Most fish oils on the market have .3g of EPA+DHA per capsule, so ten caps is 3g of EPA/DHA.
