How much fish oil should I take per day?
You should take 3 grams of fish oil per day.
1.8g of DHA & 1.2g of EPA is an optimal amount of fish oil per day.
DHA and EPAs are both Omega 3’s. There is a 3rd Omega 3 fat also. A plant based fat called alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). ALA is commonly found in walnuts & flaxseed oil. In order for ALA to be beneficial to the body, it must be converted into DHA & EPA. The body conversion rate is not very effective, so supplementing directly with DHA & EPAs is more beneficial.
