Hey, Paul J. Myself, I take 6g per day, but that’s because my BW is lower. If it were up above 200 pounds, I’d definitely be taking 10g. Another issue is how hard you’re working out. If I were a football player in camp, I can ASSURE you that, once again, I’d be taking the higher dosage. It does help with endurance and athletic performance, both.
What JB has said in the past is to start with 6g. Settle in for a week or so and then experiment by raising the dosage for a week. If you see a recognizable difference, I’d go with the higher dosage because obviously your body is responding and would benefit.
I have not experimented with different/higher dosages, but I also take flaxseed oil (which has a 25 to 33% conversion rate (if everything is working correctly) to EPA/DHA), and I also eat canned salmon. So I probably AM getting close to 10g.
It’s good stuff, Paul, the single best investment you can make in your health; good for the heart, good for the brain. The list of benefits goes on and on.
