DONT take any without food. eating them without food has been linked to some problems, leakeage, etc. just take 1-5 grams with food however many times a day you need

I do know that you can only really absorb about 500mg at a time so you should take it 2-6 times daily - spread out about 2-3 hours apart. Taking more than 500mg at a time has shown to decrease % absorption. I have a New England Journal of Medicine ref but I gotta find the citation to post.
Back.... for real this time

I think the leakage would but out your ass. You need to trust your farts.
I was just taking it all with supper but later started splitting it up. That seems like the best tactic. ... But always with food. I believe even if you don't leak, taking it on an empty stomach may just result in your body breaking it down as food energy rather than the intended purtpose.
Krill is also a great idea - I would take more if it weren't so expensive. So right now I take about 3 gm. regular distilled fish oil and 1 gm of krill.

lol - i've never had leakage from fish oil and ive never really paid attention to taking it with meals versus an empty stomach. I eat every two hours tho so I guess my stomach isn't really ever empty except when I first wake up.

The best time to take fish oil or flax seed oil is anytime you are taking in protein, shakes or food. If you only take it one time per day, the best time is before bed with your casein protein. If the oils are bothering your stomach, a trick I have learned is to keep them in the freezer. Freezing the gel pill does not have any adverse effects on the oil, and actually helps it to be absorbed by the body. Hope this helps.

I feel like you have to take more than the reccomended amount to get full benefits. I was a 1-3 gram a day guy for awhile and didnt notice any difference. Only when I upped it to 10+ grams I noticed all the results: skin looks great and doesnt break out, boost in test, mood enhancement, faster recovery, etc. There is a little burp action when you take 5g at a time, but I dont really mind.

With flax seed oil, you want to take 1000 mg, 1-3 times per day, with meals that are high in protein and moderate carbs (not just a shake). Fish oil is a little bit more complicated. As a general rule, you want 1000mg, and take 1-2 gels, up to 3 times a day with meals (high protein and moderate carb). However, depending on the meal your eating, i.e. salmon, and other fishes, you will not need to take as many gels/pills as you will be getting the oils from the fish you are eating.
How much you eat really depends on what the purpose of you diet is, such as bulk or recomp. I could suggest some places to buy these oils, but I am fearful that may not be allowed. With the mod's blessing, I would be happy to do so. Hope this helps.

If fish oil is leaking out of your ass, you might want to switch to a different manufacturer. Fish oil is readily absorbable/digestible and shouldn't be making it anywhere near your colon. If it does in fact 'leak' that is a good sign that it is probably not the fatty acids on the label.

I hear you on dry skin man; especially in the winter months. How soon after starting to use it did you notice a difference?
Sounds like you are using the
Fish Oil Concentrate
1000 mg "Concentrated" Fish Oil w/300 mg Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Noticed the Omega-3 with Kirkland Signature Enteric Coated Fish Oil One Per Day ones are $3 off a bottle this month, but they seem half the number of caps and not much more fish oil per cap

I couldnt even tell you when I started seeing skin improvements, just like any other supplement you gotta introduce it into your system. just make sure you take it with food, take about a gram for each % of bodyfat you got. dont take it with the postworkout meal, fats slow down digestion and you want the fastest possible gastric emptying post workout.
