Actually, the recommended dosage on my package is 3x daily (Yeah, you read that right). So, that would equal 3000mg per day.
I've actually been curious about trying some oil, in place of the pills, but I've always been scared away by how horrible I expect it to taste. How effective is the flavoring they use? I tend to think that a fish oil/orange taste would be even worse than just plain fish oil.
Although the softgels do go down easily, I too choke down a vita pak (GNC Mega Men) every day, so it wouldn't be bad to replace a handful of my pills with a teaspoon of oil.
