There are no established guidelines on how much Omega 3 you should take daily. However, the recommended dose among health organizations is a minimum of 250-500 mg combined EPA and DHA each day for healthy adults. For individuals with health conditions, higher amounts are frequently recommended. [1][2]

Heart Health: The American Heart Association recommends that patients with coronary heart disease take 1000 mg every day. In addition, patients with high triglycerides take 2000 – 4000 mg of combined EPA and DHA. [3]

Depression and Anxiety: Some research shows that high doses of Omega 3 around 200-2000 mg per day may reduce symptoms of depress and anxiety. [4][5][6]

Cancer: Consuming fish and omega 3 fatty acids has been associated with the decreased risk of breast, prostate and colon cancers. [7][8]
