Ok the bottle says take 2 pills a day. Each pill is 1,000 mg, which I think equals 1 gram. The flaxseed oil I used to buy(the liquid, not the pills) said take 1 tablespoon a day. But then I read on that you only need one teaspoon. Which is it? And how many pills equal one teaspoon or tablespoon?

Does it say 1,000 mg oil or 1,000 mg omega-3s?

When you take flax oil, it's one teaspoon. If you take ground flaxseeds it's one tablespoon. 1,000 mg of omega 3s is the suggested daily minimum, if I remember correctly.

It's 1,000mg of oil. I think 5 pills are equal to a teaspoon, from what I read online. So that's enough to take? Why did my other one say 1 tablespoon?
