I have a cholesterol problem and was looking for a natural way to control it. Everything I read on the Internet indicated that Omega-3 Fish Oil would be an effective and safe solution.
After taking two capsules per day from Brain Power+ for only one week, however, I had some nasty side effects. I got something called a spontaneous black eye. Without any warning, suddenly my eye was blackened as if someone had punched me. It happened while I was driving to a wedding ceremony so it was embarrassing. Luckily, a doctor at the wedding noticed and after quizzing me suggested that it was the Omega-3 that was causing the black eye.
The other side effect that I experienced was extreme bloating and intestinal gas pains. Doing a little more digging on the Internet about these symptoms I discovered that 10% of people taking Omega-3 experience intense bloating and gas.
Needless to say, I stopped taking Omega-3.
