If you have an excellent diet and avoid excessive omega-6 oils such as soybean oil, safflower oil, corn oil as well as hydrogenated oils and grain fed beef then you may need only 1 capsule or 1/4 teaspoon of high potency fish oil liquid per day.

While mercury is generally not a problem even with low cost fish oils there are many other toxic chemicals such as PCB’s that are present in many as well as problems with rancidity (oxidation).
