“Examples of supplements with this effect include garlic, ginger, ginkgo, nattokinase, and Panax ginseng.”
Although some supplements are best avoided when taking fish oil, others may synergise with the additive to offer stronger health benefits.
Previous studies have shown that combining fish oil supplements with B12, for instance, can lower homocysteine levels.
The health platform LifeSpa explains: “Elevated plasma homocysteine levels are associated with degenerative health concerns related to cardiovascular, cognitive and bone issues, as well as complications with pregnancy.”
In a study of 30 men, researchers found that supplementing with fish oils and B12 has a powerful synergistic benefit on homocysteine levels.
