    I take 1 tablespoon of flex seed oil every night, not sure what that translates into for the pill form though.

    1 tablespoon = 15 mL = 15 g

    You are assuming that it has a density of 1g/mL which it probably does not.

    I take 4-6 1000mg caps a day. I've noticed a HUGE difference in my joints and energy since I upped it from 1. :mamoru:

    It's a good approximation, most oils are between 0.90-0.95 g/mL

    teaspoon is ~5mL, which translates to 4-5g reasonable.

    It seems more that people take omega 3s (specifically) for heart health, and flax seed for joints. Flax seed will help with your overall health, but if your main concern was overall health I think omega 3s would be a better choice.
