Mega 3 capsules have no known side effects according to the manufacturer of the product. But the benefits of a fish oil supplements have not yet received widespread acceptance among the international medical community. So taking it is just like eating part of a fish but consuming only the oil part of it. If you are living a healthy hygienic life and in perfect health condition i'll suggest you continue and do regular daily exercises too to keep fit and maintain good health condition.
Taking supplements of any kind have not proven to have any additional benefits and compared to maintaining a healthy feeding habit.
Just wish you go through the labels of the product properly and do some more research amongs the users of the product.

Wish you the best and hope this helps
