Here you will find what everybody should know about fish oil supplements side effects and what to do to counter attack those side effects.

Before we go into how to beat the side effects of fish oil, Let us list the benefits of taking fish oil as a daily supplement. It is said, that fish oil supplements, can help prevent cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease, and many other health conditions.

Note that this information is not intended to act as professional advice or treatment for a disease. You must consult your physician.

It is documented in, Fish Oil: The Natural Anti-inflammatory (Paperback)

Eliminate Fish Oil Side Effects

Now, how can we eliminate the fish oil side effects?

Side effects of fish oil are not very severe and, when taken correctly, fish oil should be something safe and effective to consume.

To stay clear of some uncomfortable and undesirable side effects of taking fish oil supplements… Choose pure pharmaceutical-grade fish oil supplements. Dr. Barry Sears calls this, the miracle of the new high-dose fish oil in his book, Omega & RX Zone.

What is Pharmaceutical grade fish oil?

This is highly purified fish oil that is more concentrated, free of dangerous toxins, and has been clinically tested. Best results are achieved with this type of fish oil that is not possible with cod liver oil or typical health food fish oils. Compared to lower grade oils pharmaceutical fish oil is 2-3 times as potent.

Depending on the brand, grade and high quality of the fish oil supplement you intake there are some side effects. You will need to make sure that the fish oil supplement you bought, either pills or liquids, are of high bioavailability that allow your body to absorb the essential nutrients.

Fish Oil Side Effect Symptoms

Otherwise, you might experience sensations of nausea and diarrhea, heartburn, and bad breath plus the nasty fish oil aftertaste.

Taking too much dosage of fish oil may result in vitamin a, vitamin d or vitamin e poisoning because fish oil contains these fat-soluble vitamins already. You may find that you are subject to unusual bruising or bleeding, changes in your vision, speech, or notice any signs of an allergic reaction. If you having any of these reactions you are to immediately, contact your physician for consultation.
