    Fish Oil Dosage


    So I know fish oil is great for overall health. I have taken it for a couple years now. I read something about mega dosing fish oil can cause immunosuppressive effects? How much is too much? I take Vitamin Shoppe's liquid omega 3-6-9 which has 6680mg omega 3, 2355mg omega 6, and 2300mg omega 9 per serving. I know the ratio is also important, does this look like a good fish oil supplement?

    Your focus should be EPA/DHA content. 2-3g combined, daily.

    The above is my own opinion and does not reflect the opinion of PES

    This.

    Hence why Oximega Fishoil is such a good buy

    ah yes, thats what I was confused on. I was thinking ratio omega 3 to 6, but it's ratio of epa to dha. Oximega does look pretty dang good, and at a great price!

    Orange Triad looks like a good multi vitamin, however I do not believe in multi's. I mostly feel they are a waste.

    Also, can anyone speak to fish oil potentially being immunosuppresive in high doses?

    Stick with 2-3g of EPA+DHA and you are fine

    Personally I wouldnt pass 3g combined EPA/DHA. Something like 360/440mg EPA/DHA would be sufficient though IMO
