    Fish Oil: Once a day or spaced out?


    Is it better to take your fish oil in one large dose or space it out throughout the day?

    Also I know people always say not to combine fats and carbs because the insulin will shuttle the fat into adipose...does this rule apply for good fats as well, like fish oil?

    I like to space it out. How much are you taking?? It would likely be such a small amount of fat that it would have negligible effects, even if combined with carbs.

    Most people space it out...I like taking it as a bolus at night, with some casein protein.

    heh. large dose given rapidly so that you quickly see the desired effect. ALthough you usually only hear it used w/IV drugs and fluids. Like for a hypotensive patient you might give a 500cc bolus.

    Also, a bolus can refer to a ball of food. When you chew then swallow, the thing you are swallowing is a bolus
