Could somebody remind me the benefits of fish oil? Are they cholesterol-related?
Check the links on the first post of this thread.
From Hobby’s Link:
“The typical fish oil capsule you’ll encounter is 1000 mg fish oil; we, however, are more concerned with the EPA and DHA content of that 1000 mg. In most cases, you’ll find 180 mg EPA and 120 mg DHA per capsule. A good rule of thumb (especially based on the results of the clinical trials) is to consume 3-6 g combined EPA and DHA per day; at this capsule size, you’d need 10-20 capsules per day. For this reason, liquid fish oil is a great alternative. “
Obviously that is a lot of capsules, and the idea of consuming fish oil in liquid form doesn’t appeal to me.
Those who supplement with fish oil, how many capsules to you take per day?
