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 veganhealth.org 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?
