Collegekid: I recommend you start lower. I could feel my heart beating too hard when I went up to three, instead of two, fish oil capsules. They were the same concentration as many of the others. Others here are taking a lot more, so it wasn't that much. I think I would have needed four or five pills to get the amount people are recommending.
Just two gave me an energy boost, though. It was fairly immediate after the third or fourth day of taking them mid-afternoon with some protein.
I've never seen anyone post this before: they caused me a lot of acne. I quit and started two more times to be sure, because I wanted to take the fish oil after all I've read. The third time it only took two days before I broke out like a teenager. I took it two more days and regretted that. I am predisposed to that and fight it all the time, but the fish oil was bad for my skin. So far it looks the same for flax oil. I'll start again soon to find out. I got some CLA to try in the meantime. (That's another oil.)
