I know there is no maximum level set by the RDA. And I also know each company who makes these has a different concentration level of epa+dha.
The one I have has 0.3 of epa+dha together per pill.
How many grams do I need daily, and how much should I not exceed?
I found this:
http://www.thepaleodiet.com/nutritio...s/omega3.shtmlTry to include at least 0.5-1.8 grams of EPA + DHA per day in your diet, either by eating fish or fish oil supplements. If you have documented coronary heart disease, you should include at least 1.0 grams of EPA + DHA in your diet. Patients with hypertriglyceridemia (elevated or high blood triglycerides) can lower their values by as much as 40 percent by taking 2-4 grams of EPA + DHA per day. If you are taking more than 3 grams of EPA + DHA per day, consult with your physician because high intakes tend to prevent blood from clotting and may cause excessive nose bleeding.
So I'm thinking about 6 pills daily which would equal 1.8 grams of epa+dha.
My diet is low on meat in general, and I am not a bodybuilder, but actually a runner.
But I'm a bit scared on overdosing, yet want to stay at an optimal level.
What are your thoughts?
How much do you take daily, and have you had any side effects physically, and in your LDL levels?
