What's the "RDA" (since there's no official one)?
Anything between 2 and 9 1000mg capsules per day seems to be the norm. I usually take 3 or 4 every morning. Some people prefer to take them with meals. How much you "need" really depends on how much unsaturated fat you get through your diet. If you eat fat fish regularly, you don't need to take as many capsules. Note: I don't take fish oil anymore, I take flax seed oil instead, which is also good for the people who don't like the taste of fish oil.
