I used to take about 9 caps of the 180mg EPA/120 DHA . Off it right now while on X-Factor though.

I chose the 11-15, and heres my reason.
Mid America Heart Institute and University of Missouri-Kansas City, 4330 Wornall Road, Kansas City, MO 64111, USA.
The most compelling evidence for the cardiovascular benefit provided by omega-3 fatty acids comes from 3 large controlled trials of 32,000 participants randomized to receive omega-3 fatty acid supplements containing docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) or to act as controls. These trials showed reductions in cardiovascular events of 19% to 45%. These findings suggest that intake of omega-3 fatty acids, whether from dietary sources or fish oil supplements, should be increased, especially in those with or at risk for coronary artery disease. Patients should consume both DHA and EPA. The target DHA and EPA consumption levels are about 1 g/d for those with known coronary artery disease and at least 500 mg/d for those without disease. Patients with hypertriglyceridemia benefit from treatment with 3 to 4 g/d of DHA and EPA, a dosage that lowers triglyceride levels by 20% to 50%. Although 2 meals of oily fish per week can provide 400 to 500 mg/d of DHA and EPA, secondary prevention patients and those with hypertriglyceridemia must use fish oil supplements if they are to reach 1 g/d and 3 to 4 g/d of DHA and EPA, respectively. Combination therapy with omega-3 fatty acids and a statin is a safe and effective way to improve lipid levels and cardiovascular prognosis beyond the benefits provided by statin therapy alone. Blood DHA and EPA levels could one day be used to identify patients with deficient levels and to individualize therapeutic recommendations.

Liquid Fish Oil is the way to go. One Teaspoon yields 800+ EPA and 500+ DHA. Or you can be the guy that keeps a table spoon in the fridge next to his fish oil.
...Who would do such a thing...

I take 6 grams a day.... or 6 soft gels....... there was a study done that showed a significant fat loss while a positive gain of lean muscle mass at that doeage..... the benefits dropped off by 30% for every 2 grams less they had taken over 90 days..... IE: 4 grams = 70% of 6 gram dosage, 2 grams 40% of 6 gram doseage......

The chest pain could have been stomach reflux from not digesting completely.

Usually take about 3-5 grams fish oils regularly with 3-4.5g MSM, mostly for shoulder problems, never found anything to work better.

I take 15g of NOW Super Omega 3-6-9 every day...I use to hate swallowing these gel caps but now I'm used to it.
07-24-2008, 07:52 AM
I take upwards of 15-25g a day depending on my meals. If I'm eating fish normally I won't take any that meal.
Anybody else had problems with high fish oil doses and bruises not healing?

The best thing about the high dosages is the insane feelings of well being. Mega dosing fish oil keeps me in a good mood all the time.
07-25-2008, 08:01 AM
no so sure your body will adjust sir......
This is about the only down fall i know of mega dosing.......Internal bleeding is a possiblity as well...... I will error on the safe side. I recommend you to lower your dosage to around 15g's (MAX) for a while and see how your bruises respond.

Carlson's liquid fish oil 1 tbsp - very good EPA/DHA standard.
But the question really should be, IMO, how much EPA/DHA do you take daily - as they are the active omega-3 fatty acids of real consequence.

I take 10-12g/day NP bulk gelcaps. Have megadosed as high as 40g/day liquid, but didn't notice any real benefits from it.

Call me crazy, but I prefer my EFAs to come from more diverse dietary sources. Avocados, PB, ligands, and true fish are my source.
