I read somewhere on here that it is good to take it with some form of fatty food. Dunno if that is correct. I take 3 capsules a day, sometimes 6, usually at night or in the morning with breakfast.

I doubt it is going to make a significant difference as to whether you are taking it all at once or splitting it up over 3 doses. I would just stick to what is the most convenient.:)

The idea is that if you take it with other fats, there is a decreased chance that the n-3 fats will be used as energy, and therefore make it into the cells. There would also be less chance of the fish oil being used as energy if you were to take the fish oil with carbs.

If you're concerned with n3 fatty acids oxidation you should take it with a high carb meal.

My suggestion is going to be prior to eating.....or else you'll be tasting it for quite a while afterwards.....just my 2 cents.

I usually take in about 3g EPA/DHA (combined amount), so that would come out to 5 servings per day. I doubt it is going to make a difference as to when you take them, just as long as you are taking them at some point throughout the day. You could split them up between your first and last meal of the day, or take them all at once.
