I just picked up Fish Oil pills today, 180EPA/120DHA. How many of these should i take a day, and what time of day? I'm in a bulking stage now if that matters. Oh, i also have Flaxseed Oil pills, should i take these too or just the Fish Oil ones? Thanks

What ryuage said. Flax oil is a distant second to fish oil for EPA/DHA as its EFAs are in the form of ALA/LA which needs to be converted to EPA/DHA; this conversion is very inefficient. Having said this, flax oil is still a great source of healthy fats.

I would still use flax. It has it's benifets like omega 9. Also higher omega-6 per serving usually. I take both.
