    How much fishoil do you guys take, and when do you take it? I've always supplemented green tea extract, multivite, calcium, and protein of course, but I've seen numerous people say they take the fish oil caplets on here, so I picked up a bottle.

    I take 3-4g of epa/dha omega 3 fish oils

    depending on the potency of the pills you bought it could vary

    .3g per pill you got there. I'd be taking 10 of those capsules a day at my current dosage.

    5 grams per day, I take it in the morning with my shake and multi, and I freeze the fish oil caps to minimize the burping.

    Molecularly distilled aka evaporated in a vacuum aka pharm grade

    I don't think it's that big of a deal though if it isn't

    increases insulin sensitivity
    helps joints and skin
    helps prevent blood clots and the negative effects of having high cholesterol
    increases overall metabolism

    There's a ton of studies on omega-3 benefits out there, plus it's a bandwagon I can feel cool being on

    I think buying them by the bottle where you take it by teaspoon or tablespoon can actually be alot cheaper. Its what I've been doing the last 2 months.
    And I think its with cod liver oil that you really have to worry about contaminants rather than (plain) fishoil.

    I got a 16oz bottle of flax seed oil from GNC for about $7.00. I'll be switching to fish oil pills as soon as this bottle runs out because it tastes like shit.

    Hmmm I have never had acne growing up. Laast time I started working out and taking my supps I got bad acne on my legs and shoulders. I stopped working out and it went away. Now for 2 months I have been eating good, running ,taking my MULTI and FISH OIL and my acne is coming back.....

    I never knew this could be a side effect....interesting

    I've only been taking 3.4 grams/day for a couple weeks. No acne breakouts yet, but I'll be the first to do it if that's a side effect (i had it bad during my teen years)
