    Yes, it will be fine.. It's just a recommended dosage from teh manufactor. I have a brand that suggest 10 capsules 1000 mg per day.
    So continute to take 2 if you feel like it, no problem at all

    This product only contains 300mg of EPA/DHA per gel cap. That would equal out to 600mg - 900mg depending on if you take 2 or 3.

    Personally, to get the full health benefits of Fish Oil, one should consume atleast 2000mg of High Quality EPA/DHA daily. I personally take 3000mg - 3500mg of EPA/DHA daily. You should check out quality brands and products such as SAN Triple Fish Fats, Controlled Labs Oximega, and NOW Ultra Omega 3. These products are rich in High Quality EPA/DHA.
