Fish Oil Confusion

I’ve got Kirkland Signature brand from Costco.

It has

850mg “Concentrated” fish oil with
440mg Omega-3 Fatty Acids.

How many of these should I take a day?

Should I take more if I’m doing Low Carb under 30 carbs a day?

How many Flameout would I take with the fish oils?

also would I take flax as well?

Well first off, given the amounts you’ll be taking over time, is it free of contaminants? Molecularly distilled?

also, do you have the EPA/DHA levels/ratios?

Personally I take 4-6 Flameout and 20-30 of the other daily

Oh and from what Lonnie Lowery and others have stated, yes costco has tested out fine

USP has tested and verified ingredients, potency and manufacturing process. USP sets official standards for dietary supplements.

each softgel contains

natural fishoil concentrate 850mg
Omega 3 EPA 240mg
Omega 3 DHA 200mg

phill, it’s none of my d*mn business I guess, but why take fish oil in addition to Flameout? Interesting about the costco stuff.

CW recommends 6 Flameout & 2 tablespoons of Udos choice a day - thats about 36g…

I take 20 costco oils a day

To get a closer balance of Omega Three’s in my diet to go along with the other fats. Plus the higher dose really aids my joints and arthritic hip
