Fish Oil Capsules


#1

I bought the other day from walmart "Spring Valley" Fish Oil.

The Supplement label reads as follows:
Serving Size: 1 softgel
Carloes: 10
Cals. from Fat 10
Total Fat 1g
Saturated Fat 0.5g
PolySat. Fat less than 0.5g
MonoSat. Fat 0g
Cholesterol 5mg
Natural Fish Oil
Concentrate 1000mg
EPA 180 mg
DHA 120 mg

My question is...how many should
I consume daily?


#2

I keep it simple and usually take 6-8 and then also have walnuts and or fatty fish every day.

Some say more some less. Depends on what you are going for, weight loss etc it might be better to take more.


#3

It all depends on how much EPA and DHA you want. These are the "active" ingredients in fish oil.
