The FDA has only approved 2 grams per day because of the ability of omega-3s to thin the blood (reduce clotting). However, if you are not at risk of bleeding abnormalities, anywhere up to 6 grams per day is beneficial. The burping WILL stop if you take them consistantly. Takes about a week for the burps to stop. Keep in mind that omega-3s will be preferentially oxidized (burned for fuel), so a lot of what you supplement on a low carb diet will be burned as energy before it can be stored in fat cells where it does its magic. Whenever possible, take your fish oils after a meal or after carbs. The carb load to the liver will decrease the oxidation of the fatty acids and allow more to pass through into the blood for storage. This is good when it comes to omega-3s and CLA. </div> I just started taking fish oil tablets today. I ordered the Udo's oil blend where it's about 20 bucks a bottle of 180 capsules. If I were to take 6g/day, then the bottle will be empty in a month. Do I really need to take that much to get the full effect or could I go for 4 grams or even 2 grams?
