Some forms of fish oil are more concentrated than others, which might limit the amount of oil being eaten, while still providing appropriate levels of Omega 3. All three forms of fish oil are normally considered safe for most people. Fish oil supplements are available in a variety of forms, including capsules, tablets, and liquid oils.
Fish oil capsules are the most common form of supplementation, but they can also be taken as a liquid, powder, or oil-in-water (OITW) form. OITWs are usually taken once a day, although some people prefer to take them every other day. Some people also take a combination of capsules and tablets to get the benefits of both types of supplements at the same time.
