    I don't know a lot about these supplements pertaining only to bodybuilding, what benefits do they give. Do you recommend them?

    They bring greatness.

    in all seriousness- good for partitioning and a whole heap of other junk. They're part of my standard basic supplement regimen.

    i'm starting to grow gills on my cheeks.

    I almost drowned b/c the oxygen filtration system hasn't been fully adapted by my genetic mutations.

    It's not strictly because most people in here lift weights or exercise. Unless you eat some type of fish everyday, you might want to think about taking fish oil capsules (recommended one gram per day).

    I just ordered some to start taking mostly because of its benefits in regulating cholesterol in the body (my mother's side of the family has a history of high cholesterol, but I have been able to keep mine at a healthy level with diet and exercisep). It also has other benefits like others have said.

    I was wondering, though, why everyone in here seems to be taking 6000+ mg every day. I have been reading up on fish oil lately, and the recommended amount per day is one gram, while taking more (three-plus grams) can be extremely harmful to your body i.e. strokes, for example.

    Yeah, people which take medication to prevent heart-diseases should consult a doctor before taking fish oil pills but a ''sensible'' amount of caps should be totally fine (1 to 6). I think negative side effects with taking too many has to do with joints or maybe eicosanoids.
