Omega-3

What If I Take an Overdose?

It is not known exactly what to expect from an overdose of omega-3 fatty acids, or even if an overdose is possible, but it is reasonable to assume that taking too much may cause the usual side effects, but they may be more severe. Theoretically, an overdose may cause severe problems, such as internal bleeding.

How Should Omega-3 Be Stored?

Refer to the label of your individual supplement for information on how to best store it. Keep these and all supplements out of the reach of children. If you have a problem with a fishy aftertaste, or what is often called a "fish burp," from a fish oil omega-3 supplement, try keeping it in the freezer.
