Advice & Tips: When I first started taking fish oil I was taking 1000 mg 6 times a day. I was having alot of problems with nausea. I read that someone with Fibromyalgia and Rheumatoid Arthritis was supposed to get about 6 grams of omega 3's a day, and was struggling to get to this dose. Nature's Bounty Fish Oil (1400 mg) has 980 mg of Omega 3's per capsule. I realized a few days ago that I can touch my toes again xD
