So I've decided to hop on the fish oil wagon and just purchased some from Costco. I was just wondering if I bought the right one lol

 

Here is the following information from the label:

 

100% Wild Fish Oil Blend with Wild Salmon Alaskan Salmon Oil: 180 epa, 120 dha, per capsule. It is the Kirkland brand; recommended dosage of 3 capsules a day. 

 

There's other kinds but this one was on sale and it had the most epa, dha per capsule so I figured why not.

 

Any help would be appreciated. 

 

Also are you supposed to take 3 at once ? or is it better throughout the day ?

 

edit:

 

Here is the link for the item online:

It's basically got 300mg of omega 3.

I've read on a table on various websites the dosages for different things.

For inflammation it suggested 2000mg. HOWEVER... Just take 3 a day. 900-1000mg should suffice.

In future your looking for the total omega 3 oils (the combined EPA & DHA totals). More per tab = better obvs but usually more expensive.

Edit: Added link + All at once is fine.

We also have omega 3 concentrate pills where each capsule has around 800 mg of omega 3 oils but it's obv more expensive. Around 20$ a bottle of 300 capsules. Would you suggest taking those instead ?

Zomboid if you follow that link I posted it'll tell you what dosage you need for your specific requirements. I usually find 1500-2000mg works wonders on inflammation.

If you work out mg of omega 3/$ I'm sure those concentrated ones will work out cheaper in the wrong run considering you'll only need a few tabs per day.

In the UK the cheapest I can find them at is £30 for 250 (750mg each)
