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.

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

Triglyceride bound: Consider trying a triglyceride bound fish oil like that from nordic naturals rather than the ethyl ester form. It is a bit more expensive, but not burpy. If that doesn't work, you can try a vegetarian form of omega 3's such as flax oil or algae extract. ...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
