Are there any adverse effects from taking BIOMegaâ3 Kids?
Fish oil is generally well tolerated, although gastrointestinal disturbance may occasionally occur. There are no reports of serious adverse effects from taking fish oil. Large doses of fish oil supplements may result in a significant increase in total calorie intake. Patients taking anticoagulants should exercise caution if taking supplements containing Omega-3 PUFAs, which may inhibit blood clotting. Patients with diabetes should exercise caution if taking fish oil supplements.
Cod liver oil should not be used as a source of omega-3 PUFAs, as it contains high levels of vitamin A and vitamin D, both of which can be toxic in high doses. High doses of folic acid may interfere with anti-convulsive medicines prescribed for epileptics.
How much should you take?
Pharma Nord recommends 1-2 capsules per day.
In case of problems swallowing the capsule, it can be pierced and the contents taken with juice or in yoghurt.
