The fish oil I've been taking is:

Fish oil concentrate 2.4g (2400mg)
Omega-3 fatty acids 720mg
EPA 432mg
DHA 288mg

I usually take it twice a day. How many mg per day is recommended for good health? Thanks.

Depends upon your diet [fatty fish consumption], but 1-3 grams combined EPA/DHA [not grams of FO] is a general recommendation and food counts against it if the tally is warranted.

I only eat fish about 1-2 times a week but I eat a lot of leafy greens. So that sounds like I'm probably just about right then. Thanks.
