Is it safe to daily take turmeric & omega 3 supplements if i have low b.p. ?

This question hasn't been addressed anywhere on the internet. So if you address it the you might be the first person to do so on the entire internet.

I have low blood pressure and I'm not taking any measures to fix it currently. I have started  taking omega 3 supplements recently and was thinking about starting turmeric supplements daily. The reason i want those supplements is to improve my academic performances.

Hi there.  When you say you have low blood pressure, what do you mean? What are your normal readings?  The 'how low is too low' of low blood pressure is a question mark. It's typically benign, or perfectly fine to have hypotension as long as you have enough oxygen.  Tumeric is something I'm a fan of.  It reduces body inflammation. It is known to lower blood pressure slightly but at what mg is the question. What are you taking it for if I may ask?  Omega 3 fish oil supplements are typically recommended for a healthy heart but they can minimally affect blood pressure, lowering it, as well.  I don't think either would harm you but please check with your doctor.
