Fish Caps Equivalent to Flameout


#1

I ran out of Flameout this week. Placing an order tomorrow.

In the meantime, I have a bottle of 1g Fish Oil caps. What is the approximate serving of fish oil caps to 2 Flameout caps?

Thanks Guys!

If you have the basic 180/120 EPA/DHA stuff, you’ll need to take 5 caps to get the same amount that’s in 2 Flameout.

Try to match that.

1 serving (4 soft gels) gives you:

2,200mg DHA
880mg EPA

lowlight, I suggest you invest in a calculator. 5 capsules would be 1 Flameout.

Oh my god, you really are something. Here’s the breakdown for you:

5 caps x 300mg = 1500mg EPA/DHA in 5 caps

Flameout: 2200 + 880 = 3080mg in 4 caps

Of course, he wants to know the equivalent to TWO FLAMEOUTS. Time for some more math!

3080 / 2 = 1540mg (2 caps)

Therefore, 5 caps of normal fish oil = 2 caps of Flameout.

Just give up mak, you make a fool out of yourself every time.


#5

I was thinking more along the lines of getting 2200mg of DHA. But whatever.


#6

Despite the numbers, buying fish oil in bulk is MUCH cheaper than buying the Flameout.


#7

You’ll have about several hundred fish oil caps left over.


#8

If you want to take heaps of cap a day. And take in the extra calories.


#9

About 50 extra per day… that can be dealt with in other ways.


#10

Like maybe an extra 10 minutes on the NEPA walks.
