  • Omega 3 overload?



    Is it possible to get to many Omega 3's in your system and what would the consequence be. Say your eating only grass fed high omega 3 beef and other natural sources, and you were also taking fish oil daily. Is it possible to overdo it? What would happen ?

    ...only symptoms might be:

    insufficient blood clotting.


    If you have this...then back off a bit.


    You'll know ;-)

      I've sometimes noticed that when on higher doses of O3 I bleed a lot more than usual (I have a bad habit of biting my lip - once ended up covered in blood without realising!). So yes, as kuno1chi said, you'll know!

        Yep, once I bled out of a little cut for an entire day.

            Omega 3 also drains vitamin E. If you raise the 3 you up the E.

                I just recently read somewhere that overdosing on omega 3s can cause borderline liver damage.


                See if I can look it up again.


                I believe Dr. Harris over on PaNu recently stated that if you are not eating pastured dairy/beef or use alot of seed oils, that he would recommend just 1gram of Fish Oil (DHA/EHA) a day.


                Hyperlipid touches on it briefly: (http://high-fat-nutrition.blogspot.c...-fish-oil.html)
