Is oxy elite pro and fish oil safe to take? I am 16 taking oxy elite pro and fish oil, I was wondering if this is safe
First of all I would like to say that I think oxyelite pro is unsafe for a 16 year old. It contains a high amount of caffeine, which should definitely be avoided in a young healthy person. Caffeine may seem harmless but is has many serious effects on the body. Just to name a few: restlessness, nervousness, excitement, inability to sleep, flushing of the face (turning red), increased urination, stomach pain, fast or irregular heart beat, disordered thoughts and speech. Also you have to know that caffeine is addictive and can cause a serious withdrawal when coming off of it. Really consider if you want to deal with any of the above possibilities.
To answer your question, I do not believe there is an interaction between oxyelite pro and fish oil, however very little research is done in the area since this supplement is not regulated by the fda (food and drug administration). Therefore I always warn patients when taking such supplements.
With a healthy diet and exercise regimen you should be able to obtain your goals without these supplements. Consider a visit with a nutritionist or registered dietician.
Take good care. ...Read more

Frozen meat/ fish:
Was the fish/ meat still frozen to touch after 25 minutes? Was it cold? In general 25 minutes outside of the freezer /refrigerator on a cool day should not have significant pathologic effects. If it had thawed and no ice crystals are present do not return it to the freezer. See below f/u/ w/ doc

Guesswork: There's no questions that in cases of massive contamination, fish consumption has caused brain damage.

How can I tell if the fish oil pills I buy are good and not contaminated? What is a good safe brand?
Molecular distilled: Good question. Fish oil can be contaminated with mercury, pcb's etc. A high-quality fish oil will say it has undergone "pharmaceutical grade molecular distillation" & independently assayed to find no detectable toxins. Ideally it will also be esterified with triglycerides to enhance absorption. Good brands include nordic naturals, designs for health, carlson & minami. Consider krill oil as well. ...Read more
