Should I be concerned about food allergies like shellfish?

There is no shellfish in our supplements. If you are allergic to fish, you should NOT take any fish oil supplements or omega-3 fatty acids, despite their health benefits. Fish is one of 7 types of foods that account for 90% of all food-related allergic reactions; other foods include peanuts, tree nuts (e.g. walnuts, pecans), milk, soy, wheat, and eggs.

A true food allergy means that your immune system reacts to a specific protein as if it were a threat by releasing histamines and other powerful chemicals, which trigger your allergic symptoms that can range from a rash, to an asthma attack, to deadly anaphylaxis.

The question is whether you have a true allergy or food intolerance. If you are concerned about this you should review or consult a physician to be sure.
