    I use a fish oil supplement (1g caps).

    Fish oil supplement would help you get in adequate amounts of n-3 fats.

    Most people get plenty of n-6 fats through their diet, so unless you are eating close to a fat free diet I would imagine that you are getting in enough n-6 fats. I would recommend getting ~25% of your daily cals from fat.


    how often should be taken ?
    The studies done on fish oil used 6g per day, so somewhere around 6-8g per day would probably be sufficient.

    I take 1 gram(1000 mg) capsules as well, those things are huge, hard to swallow 10 of those a day

    I only bought them in capsule form because that's the only kind I could find from the site I was ordering everything from.
    My profile picture is about 5 years old, I'll get around to taking some progress pics eventually.
