Benefits of Fish Oil

I’m going to pick up some today… I wonder if one ate something like Salmon twice a week if that would do it?


Great article. I have been taking one 1000mg capsule per day, but I am now going to up that to three. There is just no way I am going to take 10 or more though! My capsules do contain just what was in the article, namely 180mg EPA and 120mg DHA.

I would say I am very deficient in Omaga 3’s, because I just don’t like fish. What’s the deal with the fish oil in the bottle? Do you know where to buy that? Bet it tastes bad though.

I haven’t read the articles yet but will when I return. I’ve been taking 1000mg a day for years. Fish oil does thin the blood though. If also taking vitamin E supplement and also taking garlic supplement, which I do both, the blood can possibly become too thin if taking too much of all three when combined (aspirin is also a blood thinner, in case one takes that regularly). For the benefits, I take strong doses of fish oil, E and garlic, but not as much as I could because years back when I was taking even heavier amounts I got a paper cut one day and it almost wouldn’t stop bleeding. Surgeons need to know, and will probably request not taking much of these before surgery. Thin blood is good, but if I’m not mistaken way too thin can also increase a chance of a hemorrhage of which possibly even a stroke could be caused. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a strong believer in strong supplements and take those and many others. I’m just saying that it’s good to be aware of any possible negatives that could occur in some strong supplement combination cases.

I’ve been using Flax Oil in my shakes. It doesn’t taste good, but you get used to it after a while. It is much cheaper to get your Omega 3 fats this way, rather than caplets. I think there is around 10g of Fat per Tbsp.


I have taken 6,000 mg a day for the past 4 years or so. My doctor found that it helps with ulcerative conditions like my colitis. Before taking it I had to pop anywhere from 4 to 8( only on the worst days of Amodium AD Advanced along with it). Now a single tablet or two keeps me good. Three during a flare up.

I swallow them straight down with no problem, the pills if you sniff the container smell really FISHY. But I can count on my hand how many times I have ever had a fish smell burp come back on me form those tablets over the years.

I know Lewd Ferrigno personally.

I take 6 caps a day when I’m eating healthy (like now because I’m dieting) - usually 3 in the morning and 3 at night with meals to help avoid fish oil burps. As wicked as the burps can be, I hate to think what bottled oil would taste like. IMO, stick with the capsules.

Beenthere is right about fish oil thinning the blood. Those on prescription blood thinners or taking other supplements that thin the blood should be careful and/or consult a doc.

My use of pharmacological doses of fish oil are for treating
osteoarthritis. My intake is typically 12-16 g/day. My clients who are
using fish oil take from 4-8 g/day.


Also, if you are taking any more than a few capsules of fish oil per
day, you may want to increase your vitamin E intake. The evidence is
stronger that increased PUFA intake depletes antioxidant substances in
the plasma (it would be interesting to see the corresponding tissue
concentrations of antioxidants, e.g. liver, etc).

BTW, Costco and Sam’s Club both sell big bottles of fish oil capsules for about $6.

Icelandic cod liver oil is good stuff, barely tastes of anything. Would that be beneficial?

>I wonder if one ate something like Salmon twice a week if that would do it?

From here:

1,000-milligram fish oil supplement each day - the amount found in a 3 1/3-ounce serving of broiled salmon

If this is correct, eating salmon 2x per week isn’t much compared to taking several capsules each day.

Cod liver oil is extremely high in vitamins A and D. I wouldn’t take megadoses of it.

I remember my grandmother pulling me off to the side one day, when I was a little five year old kid, and telling me that she always took a teaspoon or tablespoon (I forget which) of cod liver oil every day, and she wished so much that her children would do the same. But they just wouldn’t… they hated the taste of it. This was about 1964.

She had six children, and lived to an older age than ANY of them did. From three to ten years longer than any of them, depending on which one you pick. She lived to be 84. They died at ages between 74 and 81.

I don’t know if this means anything. I don’t know why she told me such a strange thing at such a young age. I don’t know why I even remember it, but I do. For some reason she must have felt that it had importance, that’s all I can think of.

It’s not the most “romantic” idea to have “planted” in your brain, is it? But as I got older I remember it. She was old, and on the weekends we would go visit her farm and help out. She and I were standing on the front porch of her house, while dad was mowing her lawn out front. She started telling me this fish oil thing while he mowed the lawn.

I can say this: I take my fish oil. :) Been doing it for two years now, ever since dad died of cancer. Oh, grandma died of natural causes, did I mention that?

Fuck the taste. Hold your nose if you have to. Be a man. Deal with it.

Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of fish oil…

My mother is pushing 60 and has had joint problems. Her doctor and our chiropractor both said that she needed to take more of these fatty acids - flaxseed is a pretty cheap way to get some of them. You can get it at health food stores or Trader Joe’s.

You really think flax oil tastes bad? I just buy it in it’s own container and drink from it everyday.

Just be aware that flax oil is not as effective as fish oil.

I’ve been taking Flaxseed Oil on and off for a year and a half now. I’ve just started moving across to Cod Liver Oil. From everything I read, it is much more efficient at getting the EPA’s and DHA’s into the body. I take it in liquid form, about 5ml’s a day. It tastes pretty bad, but in my protein shake it isn’t very noticeable.
