Please be careful with fish oils - they are very popular and certainly have a lot going for them when used intelligently. But they need to be taken with caution. For one - for us migraineurs, they have one big strike against them. They come in these big thick gel caps = tons of MSG. If you’re on a strick MSG diet, you’d be better off buying fish oil liquid, which is really hard to swallow, literally. Anything you take in a gel cap, including Co-Q is loaded with MSG. So the benefit which you may get is certainly not worth it is you are MSG intolerant.
I just tested this by ditching any supplement that came in a gel cap - what a difference it made! i guess MSG IS one of my triggers.
In addition, fish oils dramatically reduce your clotting time. I’ve heard, read, people taking high doses of fish oils (as high as 6000mg) which is now known to be to be be very dangerous, especially when mixed with drugs which also reduce your clotting time - not something to be taken lightly.
I’m not sure what the recommended dosage is for migraineurs is anymore, but at one time it was pretty high, like 4,000mg daily? That’s considered way too high today among medical professionals.
As well, if you’re going to take fish oils, you want to take the correct combination: EPA/DHA with EPA being the larger component.
Thats all i’ve got.
