With the Covid-19 pandemic on the rise, the first thing people will buy are nutritious food. But with people panic buying their food, what will happen to them when they overeat them?
- Omega-3 and Fish Oils
As we all know omega-3 is a vital nutrient for us, as it fights inflammation, heart disease, and helps our brain function.
Over intake of omega-3 is harmful however. The average intake ranges from 1-6 grams per day, but taking around 13-14 grams per day could cause blood-thinning effects.
- Tuna (Both Fresh and Canned)
One of the great sources of omega-3 is tuna, as well as a great source of protein. What we don’t know is that tuna has a pollutant called methylmercury which is a neurological toxin that causes vision problems, coordination problem, impaired hearing and speech.
Cinnamon is a delicious, widely-used spice that may have some medicinal properties.
Ah cinnamon, the key to cinnamon buns. This spice is antioxidant in nature which helps heart disease, diabetes, cancer and neurodegenerative diseases.
But within the key ingredient to cinnamon buns lie coumarin, a dangerous part of cinnamon that causes liver problems and eventual cancer.
Nutmeg, a spice used in several foods like eggnog, cakes and puddings.
In normal intake, it makes meals tasty but in large amounts it becomes poisonous. This is because of myristicin, found in nutmeg, which causes seizures, heart problems, nausea, dizziness, pain and hallucinations.
For this reason, its recommended not have 10 grams of nutmeg for one serving.
