High Cholesterol



Is it ok to take Garlic pills and Omega 3`s together to help lower cholesterol (in addition to diet and exercise) or is it overkill or does it not matter?


The garlic increases the risk of bleeding if on high dose of omega-3.

A better choice may be cinnamon 1000mg before each meal along with the omega-3 2000mg four times a day if OK with your doctors.
