A lot of people believe that supplements are totally safe and you can never take too many.   This is not true especially with oil supplements.

I suggest that the average size person takes no more than 15 gram of oil supplements and to learn the precautions.

There are 3 major precautions to be considered when taking Fatty Acids.

  1. Fatty Acids thin the blood, use only under supervision if you are: on blood thinners, have a bleeding disorder or are a hemophiliac.
  2. Fatty Acid should be taken at least 2 hours away from mucilangenous herbs such as: Psyllium, Slippery Elm, etc.  There is no interaction if taken together, it is just helps prevent the mucilangenous herbs from absorbing the fats and pulling them out of the body.
  3. Fatty Acids should be taken with a protein.   This is true when taking any oil based supplements such as: Vitamins A, D, E and K as well as Flax Seed Oil, Evening Primrose Oils, Black Currant Oil, Omega 3 Oils, etc., to get the full benefit from them and to prevent developing a fatty liver.
