    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

    do you take them all at the same time? or is there a benefit in breaking them up?

    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.
