What can You Do?

Let me tell you the benefits first.

Fish is loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins such as D and B2 (riboflavin) and minerals such as calcium, phosphorus iron, zinc, iodine, magnesium, and potassium. [3]

Eggs are also a great source of protein because they contain all nine essential amino acids, including omega-3 fatty acids, Vitamins A, D, E, and B12, antioxidants, and choline. [4]

I suggest, try it yourself.

Everyone is different. Metabolism is different for everyone.

And if you feel discomfort after trying several times, talk to your doctor.

If they advise, just avoid this food combination.
