Health associations throughout the world insist on eating trout, mackerel, albacore tuna, herring, sardines, and salmon about twice a week; but again, they fail specifying that such quantity applies to young folks. Older people should eat those fish more often than twice a week OR supplement with 2,500 to 3,500 mg per day ~if approved by their doctor~ for five days of the week if they want benefits of Fish Oil.
