Fish Oil & Cod Liver Oil (EPA & DHA)
Interactions with Supplements, Foods, & Other Compounds
Some evidence suggests that adding vitamin E to fish oil may prevent fish oil-induced increase in blood sugar levels.203
People who took fish oil and who also took 15 grams of pectin per day were reported to have reductions in LDL cholesterol.204 This suggests that pectin may overcome the occasional problem of increased LDL cholesterol reported in people who supplement with fish oil. The LDL-cholesterol raising effect of EPA and DHA has also been reported to be prevented by taking garlic supplements (or presumably including garlic in the diet) along with EPA and DHA.205
