    Is consuming Fish Oil capsules a good supplement for bulking?

    ANd what amount should i take?

    I see some people on here take 10x to 20x the daily recommended amount.

    I am currently taking 3 capsules a day which is 3x the recommended amount on the packaging.

    I am 6'1 165lbs.

    And what other healthy fat/oil supplements can i take? What about flax seed oil? How does that compare to fish oil?

    if you're only taking 6 pills a day or so (about what you need for the health benefits) then it won't have any negative effects...i was mostly referring to megadosing it.

    I've heard that megadosing can make it harder to put on weight...lean or fat...
