I take 1g of fish oil each day and 3.6 grams of flaxseed oil a day. I can only take 1g of fish oil a day. Anymore makes me break out with painful acne. I'm trying to incorporate wild caught Alaskan salmon into my diet as fresh fish gives me no ill effect. I ate a one pound salmon fillet today and a .9 pound salmon fillet yesterday. I'm becoming addicted!
I'm not entirely sold on fish oil supplementation. No one knows what the long-term side effects are. IMO, don't be too overconcerned with getting high omega 3. Your #1 goal should be low omega 6. Once you get your omega 6's low, take 1-3g of fish oil a day if you can handle it, but it's better if you just start eating wild caught high omega 3 fatty fish like Alaskan salmon, tuna and mackerel. High omega 3 may be even worse than high omega 6. It causes clotting issues and may increase your cancer risk. There's so little studies done on high omega 3 because it seems to be this "buzz word" now, so I don't know if anyone knows the consequences. 30 years from now, we may see all kinds of new diseases from people popping all these refined fish oil pills. Just don't overdo it. Omega 3 is important, but it's STILL a polyunsaturated fat that's highly prone to oxidation, and we should be trying to keep our polyunsaturated fat intake low - 4% of daily calories or less.
