While there can be issues associated with excessive EFA intake such as increased blood clotting time I really wouldn't call 1 tablespoon excessive. Their recommendations have to apply to a population where, as body builders, we are the extreme.

ew, you dont get the pills?Some people prefer to use the liquid form. There's nothing wrong with it if you mix it with something like a shake. I can't down it by itself, though.

The lemon stuff helps, but it's still fish oil. :D

How much fish oil is too much? My bottle of Carlsons states no more than 1 - 2 teaspoons at mealtime a day, Is one tablespoon too much (4 teaspoons)?
No more than 3 grams of EPA/DHA per day. Check the back of your bottle to see how many mg of EPA/DHA is in each serving.

Excessive omega-3's INHIBIT coagulation. The danger is not clotting, but excessive bleeding (the opposite).
