I just realized today (thanks to my addition skills) that Im taking 5.1g of Fish oil. There's 1700mg in 2 gelcaps and Im taking 6 a day. 2 with each meal.
Is this ok and am i just freaking out over something good?

Look at the content of each pill. You are concerned with the DHA and EPA content, not overall grams.

If I recall correctly, according to Built, you want about 2g of those. So 2000/400 is 5 pills. 2000/300 is 6.7 pills. So I would say anywhere from 6-8 should be fine.

I take 10g fish oil for combined EPA/DHA of 3g daily.

2-3g EPA/DHA and you're good to go.
