  • How much fish oil

    Not really sure hoW to figure out my fish oil dosage. My pills say 1,000mg pills (300 EPA 200 dha) I've been taking 5 pills 4 times a day to get 20g(4g dha) . Is this enough to get all the benefits?

    Yes that is more than adequate.

      Could you eat some fish instead of all the pills? I have about 10ml of oil total then eat fish every couple of days. Fresh fish has got to be better than pills.

      Bought 20 small fish yesterday ($5.00) but cooked them to nicely as the kids taste test turned into me only getting 9 fish after my 2 sons ate the other 11.

        1.86g of EPA and 1.5g of DHA have been shown to improve muscle protein synthesis. For rheumatoid arthritis, fish oil providing 3.8 grams/day of EPA and 2 grams/day DHA has been shown to be beneficial, so I would assume this would also provide joint health benefits in someone who does not have arthritis. For reducing high blood pressure, 2.04 grams of EPA and 1.4 grams of DHA per day appears to be beneficial.

                Is there anything wrong with taking all your fish oil pills at once?

                I've been taking five with my last meal that is protein and fat.

                    No problem! If you like the liquid fish oil, I prefer Carlsons brand.

                      Carlson's is great but Udu's Oil has a a complete Omega 3-6-9 profile and has a nice nutty taste to it.

                            For the most part there is benefit of spreading out the doses. Omega-3s are anti-inflammatory partly from their conversion into prostaglandin-3 family molecules, but also because they're cox-2 inhibitors. So the more frequently you dose omega-3s throughout the day, the more you'll avert your body from being in an inflammatory state.

                            This is useful at least if you suffer from inflammatory-mediated pain (think achy joints for example).

                              So, what your saying is that you favor a more nutty flavor? Sorry just had to go there.
