Stay cool: The chances are that nothing untoward will occur. There is the small possibility that the fish oil my inhibit somewhat the absorption of the antibiotic. I would suggest that you take the antibiotic every 12 hours and hold off on the fish oil until you finish the amount of antibiotic prescribed. ...Read more

Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to significantly reduce sudden cardiac death. Some studies also indicate the potential for benefits in dementia and risk of heart attack. The omega-3 content of cold water ...Read more

Is fish oil pill recommended for hypertension?

Is fish oil pill recommended for hypertension?

There is evidence: That fish oil can decrease blood pressure but it's a rather small effect. It's not a first line therapy but can help some individuals. But realize the true value of fish oil supplements is a mixed picture of evidence. Your best bet is still to try to get your omega 3s directly from fish consumption, flax seeds, chia seeds etc. ...Read more

What are the benefits from taking omega-3 fish oil tablets?

What are the benefits from taking omega-3 fish oil tablets?

Much debated: There are many claims regarding the beneficial effects of fish oils, but there are few randomized blinded clinical trials testing these observational claims. Fish oils lower triglycerides, and are indicated to do so, so as to prevent pancreatitis, however no studies support this recommendation.

What is a good alternative supplement for fish oil? Fish oil tablets make me burp a lot with that yucky fishy taste.

What is a good alternative supplement for fish oil? Fish oil tablets make me burp a lot with that yucky fishy taste.

You don't need this: Krill oil and fish oil are the new snake oil, both are high in omega 3 fatty acids which are extremely fragile. Omega 3 fish oils reduce triglycerides by impairing the liver's ablility to make them. However the oxidative stress caused by fish oil actually raises LDL cholesterol.
Some day we may use the phrase "this is just more fish /krill oil" or "here comes the fish/krill oil salesman". ...Read more

Here are some...: Any illness always results from multiple factors and is a process of lifelong making. Among those, genetic factor is the underlying one which could not be altered. What may be within our control is lifestyle with how to eat as a part of it. Information flooding with conflicting ideas has puzzled many like you. In reality, I would not worry about it but consume it in moderation, not overindulgence. ...Read more

Safe to take my levothyroxine, prenatal vit not preggo, magnesium tablet, co q 10, fish oil and biotin on a daily all spaced out throughout the day?

Safe to take my levothyroxine, prenatal vit not preggo, magnesium tablet, co q 10, fish oil and biotin on a daily all spaced out throughout the day?

Yes: These are all safe to take daily. Levothyroixine should be on empty stomach in morning. I advise prenatal, biotin and CoQ10 after breakfast, then fish oil after lunch or dinner. Magnesium (best as glycinate or taurate) best in evening at least 2 hours after dinner. Take a quality prenatal, ideally one with the L-5-MTHF form of folate (folic acid) (Pure Encapsulations and Designs For Health make great ones). ...Read more

I take fish oil and niacin to lower my triglycerides, can I also add garlic tablets?

I take fish oil and niacin to lower my triglycerides, can I also add garlic tablets?

You can: But I doubt it will work. I've not had any luck with Niacin and modest with fish oil, unless it's a prescription strength. Best way is weight loss and avoiding sweats, easily absorbable carbs, etc. If you have hereditary hypertriglyceridemia, none of the mentioned meds will work effectively. ...Read more
