How many fish oil caps are usually recommended for one day? I took 2 this morning...1000mg capsules.
I usually take 2 twice a day, if I remember that is... I know some people take like 10 a day.
I take 5g of DHA concentrated fish oils twice a day (Breakfest when I wake up and last meal before bed)
I get fish oil concentrate, so I just add two tablespoons to my meal.
get 2-4 grams of epa/dha depending on your weight and fatness level and you should be straight, most 1000mg pills contain like 300 mg of epa/dha
6g/ capsules per day of fish oil for me.
do you take them all at the same time? or is there a benefit in breaking them up?
i take all 12 of mine in one dose
I take maybe two at a time...spread out three times throughout the day. I'd like to know as well if there's any benefits of one method over the other to taking them all at once or spreading them out.
Maybe less fishy breath that some here complain about.
any recommended brands/places to order from?
i've never experienced fishy breath
i usually take them all at one time at night
i got a big container from costco a little while ago... they were cheap and 1200mg/cap
which is better fish oil or flax oil or the pill version?
I bought the same 1200mg/cap fish oil. It's made by Nature Made, says recommended by pharmacists. USP verified
Serving Size 2 softgels
432 mg EPA
288 mg DHA
Really? yeah i got some fish oil caps from gnc...i know everyone here hates gnc and i dont buy much from them really, but it was 10$ for 180 caps
i got some at albertsons a while back... buy one get one free so i got 4 bottles of 100 for $15.. then at costco i got a bottle with 400 for $9
