    flax/fish oil dosage question


    I have flax seed oil and fish oil pills (i know, pills).
    Each flax pill is 1000mg, each fish pill is 1200mg.
    I've been taking 2-3 fish oils daily. Now I take 1 flax in the morning, then 1 fish at lunch and dinner. What's the best ratio to take them or should I just take one or the other?

    Thanks

    I take 9 grams of fish oil per day (3 x 3 caps spread out) and one tablespoon of flax every day.

    6 grams of fish oil should be enough for most users. Too much fish oil may become pro-inflammatory. So you should be adjusting the intake of EFA's based on your diet.
