Who Cannot Take Omega 3 Fish Oil Capsules?

Omega-3 fatty acids have anti-inflammatory properties and heart-healthful benefits. You can get fatty acids either from food or fish oil supplements. Fish such as mackerel, salmon, tuna, sardines and halibut are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, as are plant oils such as flaxseed and canola oil. Fish oil capsules are another way to get your omega-3 fatty acids. Fatty acids in fish oil are docosahexaenoic and eicosapentaenoic acid. 

Omega 3 Dosage 

Fish oil capsules usually contain 120 milligrams of DHA and 180 milligrams of EPA per capsule. No more than 3,000 milligrams, or 3 grams, of omega-3 fatty acids from capsules should be taken without medical supervision, reports the University of Maryland Medical Center. Ensure that you get your fish oil capsules from a reputable company whose products don't contain any pesticides, mercury, cadmium or lead. All those on this site are off top quality manufacture from top quality ingredient sources.

Omega 3 and blood disorders

Taken in high doses, fish oil can increase the risk of bleeding, according to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine. Persons who have bleeding disorders, bruise easily or take blood thinners such as aspirin, warafin or clopidogrel should seek medical advice before taking fish oil capsules.
