This is an all in one kind of post as you’ll see.
I just started to take fish oil capsules. Gosh, when I opened that bottle for the first time, it smelled like rotting fish. I wanted to puke but I got through it. In a short period of time, my soreness has gone down quite a bit and feel like my mind is more focused. I just started it so we’ll see what kind of results I’ll have in the long run. Its a well received addition to my arsenal.
I wanted to know, overall, what kinds of stories people have relating to fish oil. I know time and time I’ve read on T-Nation to take the stuff, but I never heard many people talk about what it has done for them. I heard it mentioned to help with weight loss, work as an anti inflammotory, and more but no one talks about it…or I missed it.
Additionally, the kind I bought said that it had filtered out all the mecury and blah blah blah. Is that possible or is it a gimmick? Should I be considered with the mercury content in them?
What’s the big difference between taking fish oil and flax seed oil?
And lastly, how much do you take a day?
