0ari Posted February 10, 2022 Report Share Posted February 10, 2022 (edited) Hi everyone, My omega 3 is 6.5g and 400% above the limit, is this a problem? Most (6g) is from chia (tblspns/day) and flax (1 tblspn/day). I'm otherwise healthy, in good shape, and exercise regularly. I googled and the only thing I can find on Omega 3 toxicity is old and vague: https://today.oregonstate.edu/archives/2013/oct/excess-omega-3-fatty-acids-could-lead-negative-health-effects I like things where they, I'm otherwise good with my numbers so I don't want to change. But if its an issue I can cut my chia and flax to 1/2 tablespoon each (I grind them before eating), which lowers my omega 3 to 2.8g (1.2 from flax and .9 from chia), and lowers me to 172% above the upper limit in cronometer. this would put me at 2.3g omega 6 (13% of recommended amount) / 2.8g omega 3 (172%). But I prefer not to do this unless my current numbers are a problem. Thanks!
