A new study warns against taking some of the most common nutritional supplements that are sold in the market without prescriptions and have dangerous effects.
Many support their bodies with various nutritional supplements with the aim of improving physical structure or cognitive function, especially since some studies have pointed out the role of some supplements such as “vitamin B12” in fighting Alzheimer’s, for example, but studies have also pointed out that there are some risks for these supplements.
Physicians from the University of Geneva Hospital and Brigham Hospital reviewed seven studies of a total of 81,000 medical conditions, in which researchers found that a very popular and frequently used supplement was associated with an increased risk of atrial fibrillation, especially among those who took more than one gram of these supplements per day. .
And the new analysis by doctors, published in the scientific journal “American Heart Association Circulation”, revealed that taking marine omega-3 fatty acids, or so-called fish oil supplements, can increase the risk of atrial fibrillation, an irregular or rapid heartbeat. .
Atrial fibrillation causes weakness, fatigue, dizziness, chest pain, dizziness and shortness of breath, as well as an inability to exercise for long periods of time, according to a Mayo Clinic report.
And the long-term risks of untreated atrial fibrillation are much worse, with the American Heart Association warning that untreated atrial fibrillation “makes you twice as likely to have heart-related death and five times more likely to have a stroke.”
According to the article published in the magazine “Eat This, Not That”, the problem of atrial fibrillation can be reversed through a medical review and consulting a doctor when taking “omega-3” fatty supplements. Surgery, therapy, and medication help effectively treat atrial fibrillation.
