Is It Good to Take Fish Oil Every Day?

It’s recommended that you consume fish once or twice a week as part of a healthy diet. If fish is not readily available in the diet, it may be wise to add fish oil and omega-3 supplements to your daily regimen. 

How Much Fish Oil Should I Take Every Day?

According to the World Health Organization, the recommended daily allowance of fish oil is between 0.2 and 0.5 grams (200 to 500 milligrams), of combined EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) forms of omega-3s from fish oil. Since fish oil works with your dietary fats for absorption, try to take it with a meal that includes some form of healthy fat.

Typically, you can expect to notice the effects of regular supplementation with fish oil and omega-3 anywhere from six weeks to six months after you start taking it.
