8 Super Healthy Foods That Are Dangerous When Taken Too Much

Omega-3 and Fish Oils

Omega-3 is an essential fatty acid. They fight inflammation in the body, play an important role in brain development and reduce the risk of heart disease, to name a few.

Most of our diets are low in Omega-3. Hence, supplements have gained popularity. These include Omega-3 capsules produced from fish, fish liver, and algae.

The usual dose of Omega-3 considered safe ranges from 1–6 grams per day, but taking as much as 13–14 grams per day may have blood-thinning effects in healthy individuals.

Taking high amounts of fish liver oil may result in excessive vitamin A intake. Excess vitamin A may cause vitamin A toxicity. This is of particular concern for children and pregnant women.
