    Get an Omega Complex or an EFA. Much more benefitial in the long-run. Oh and the good fatty acids serve a multitude of purposes. Some off the top of my head are healthy cholesterol processing (they facilitate), joint lubrication, hair and skin consistency, proper circulatory and metabolic function, and the list goes on.

    And brain function. There has been research done that shows people that are suffering from some form of depression usually have low Omgea-3.

    My bottle says one 1000 mg pill a day but that just doesn't seem like enough.

    Your bottle should say 3 1,000 mg pills per day taken with meals.

    Kabuki forgot reduced muscle catabolism, which is precisely why omegas are good for strength athletes/bodybuilders.

    Yeah. I was just being an ass because the guard was WIDE open.

    Ruick, I recommend an EFA complex. All of the omegas, not just the fish oil.

    If you want fish oil the one I recommend is by GNC. It has one of the highest concentrations of EPA and DHA per capsule. It is called GNC Double Strength Fish Body Oil. Also, it is tested for mercury, pcb and other contaminants.

    Make sure you take them with a meal.
