How many of these pills should I take per day. I have the 1000mg kind and the back of both bottles says I should take three a day with a meal.

Or one or two tablespoons of actual oil. Forget the caps. Oil is the way to go.

So would taking 6 1000mg fish oil capsules and 1 tbsp of flaxseed oil a day be enough?

Just make sure you're getting at least 3g total of EPA/DHA per day.

Oil vs. caps is just a matter of personal preference. Assuming you're using a good brand, the quality and effects should be the same.
