    grams?

    I just started taking it again and I'm doing 5g twice daily.. thinking about bumping it to 15g but I don't know if it's going to have an added benefit..

    I take:
    10g fishoil
    4g acetyl-l-carnitine
    4g acetyl-l-tyrosine
    4g cee
    and supplement about 90g protein
    and I take 6 neurogenex caps..

    I wish Omacor wasn't prescription only, it sounds like good stuff.

    I take 6g a day. I wouldn't do anything more than 10g because of the immunosupressant effects. I'm very happy with fish oil though.. an essential supplement IMO, especially if you don't eat fish on a regular basis.

    Here's an article about fish oil.. scroll about half way down.

    Also mike, I give my dog fish oil too.. she has much better hair, her skin isn't dry anymore etc.

    The only big thing you have to watch out for is bleeding when taking in lots of fish oil

    Do you guys just give them the pill or do you use some other type of fish oil supplement? (For the dogs)

    We use a dropper and put it into her food. I can't imagine my dog swallowing the pills.

    I want to start giving Capone this for his fur and skin. I don't know if he'll eat it if it's on his food so I might just have to shove a pill down his throat everyday like when I have to give him medicine. :o

    i just put peanut butter on them and give 'em to her and she scarfs it down in a heartbeat..

    go to walmart though --- in the dog aisle there's a brown bottle called 'skin & coat oil" that you put on their food, supposedly it tastes good and it's got omega 3/6/9 and flax. it's like $3.00 for a small bottle.. myd og loved it but it's just easier to give her a couple caps of fish oil.

    and capone looks like a more colorful version of scarlet <3

    With the arthritis Mike has, 12g+ a day would be good for him; it has immunosuppressant effects at very high dosages. Anybody else would want to keep it less than that.
