what brand fish oil capsules does everyone take? what daily mg do you guys take?
I usually take 10g/day.
Costco (Kirkland) coated. 3.4 grams/day.
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.
so shoudl i be taking somethign in the realm of 5g to get the effects since I'm on the larger side?
or should i just load it up like a lotta people seem to do and take 10g?
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.
shit that's a lot
12 kirkland enterically coated ( about 3 and 2.4g of EPA DHA)
Costco Brand. $10 for 400 capsules.
2 with every meal for a total of 10 to 12 per day...i just gotta get in the habit of taking them
