I've planned a PSMF and that requires 6grams of fish oil per day.

Would that mean taking a total of 6 pills a day? As part of the PSMF there is virtually no fat in the diet other than the trace amounts in veggies and meat. EFA's are needed. This is a PSMF that will turn into a moderate diet by the end of February.

Any reason not to take 6 a day? Or am I reading the label wrong?

Based on the label, you appear to be correct. g/l on your psmf

On the more current label it says not to exceed more than 3 caps a day. The reason for this?

Not sure why you couldn't have more than 3 caps/day..

I take 10-12 sometimes, depending on where my fats are for the day..

I take 10 caps a day. I remember a while ago Chris Mason posted his cutting diet, and it had him taking something like 30 a day. You'll have no problem with 6.

Thanks for the replies guys.

Still wondering about the label though.

The recommendation on the bottle is based upon a general consensus about what is a safe and efficacious dose.

How much do you personally take a day Chris?

Lol, I personally take 20-25 caps per day... I DON'T recommend that to others.

I have to know your reasoning behind this! The curiosity will kill me. I take 4-6 a day! I get some nasty burps,I couldn't imagine what you get.

Mega dosing for possible anti-inflammatory benefits.

In terms of burps, I take 10-12 at a time and don't really get much in the way of burps.

Do the ALN capsules have an enteric coating to prevent fish burps?

They do not, but they have never really bothered me. I get a burp occasionally, but not with regularity.

I try to take my fish oil at times when I don't burp. I kind of know what my diet is and when I may burp, so I try to not take them then.

For instance, I tend to burp while in the gym, so I make sure not to take my fish caps before I workout. Although, I don't take 30 a day.....lol.
