    It's said to be best after workouts, because it can inhibit inflammation that makes muscle grow.
    The LORD is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety.-Psalm 18:2

    I just take it when I remember. As long as I get it in daily, I feel it is fine. I usually end up taking 6 caps of nutra's bulk fish oil right before I hit the sack everynite. One thing I have done is store my fish oil in the frig. It just keeps the smell down a bit.

    Fish oil is best taken with food, though. More specifically, it is best taken with fat-containing meals. Absorption, bioavailablity, and results are best that way.

    I agree, but once again, this is splitting hairs IMHO.

    Its supposed to be taken with other fats of the same chemical makeup to make the absorption rate better...if that's what you mean?

    It's only splitting hairs if increased bioavailability and subsequently, money, isn't important.

    i just take my fish oils whenever, same with multivitamin.


    if you can schedule enough out of your day to time dosings then i'm jealous, as my schedule does not allow this.

    Well if 2 of the 6 caps aren't getting absorbed that's 1/3 of the cost gone.

    Prolly the zinc.

    I tried supplementing zinc ONCE.. went to the gym afterwards.. Hopped on the treadmill. Next thing I know, Im yacking up the eggs I just ate for breakfast.

    Zinc + empty stomach = bad news

    At least IMHO...

    one with each meal... I don't go crazy on them but I also take in a serving of olive, coconut, or flax before bed.

    The Nutra bulk stuff is great 1,000 softgels for $25 which will get me through the better part of a year!

    I dose it at any time during the day that isn't breakfast or post workout. Any other time of day is fair game.
