    Hello :p

    I read on here that it is advised to take 3-6g of fish oil per day...I got some "salmon and fish oil" 1000 mg tablets from Sam's Club..it advises one per day.
    Should I take 3 tablets like advised on here, or 1 like it says on the bottle? :noes:

    1 a day is fine. Are you physically active? Do you have any particular reason to be taking this?

    its not the "fish oil" that you should be worried about, its the EPA and DHA dosages, which should vary depending on the amount of exercise you do, and depending on how much of these two EFAs you consume in a day from solid food.

    I take extra fish oil because of psoriasis.

    I was just kidding guys, I take the recommended amount on the bottle. Which happens to be 3 pills, or 3,000 mg. Should I be taking more?

    30+ a day

    1 a day isn't going to serve much of a benefit. Eat lots of them. Whoever said they were expensive, learn to buy in bulk. 300 cost $7.

    I guess it isn't that bad. The kind I got was 100 for 3.25. Just seems like my bottle runs out way too fast.

    Why would you take that many a day if you're trying to gain weight?

    EPA and DHA is why I'm taking "fish oil"

    I just said "fish oil" because that's what it says on the package :hsugh:

    Bleh...so if I have a 30% fish oil pill at 1 g each, I should take about 3-4 or so?

    Is this safe? :hs:
