What are Fish Oil Supplements?
Oily fish like mackerel, salmon and cod liver have the highest form of omega 3 fatty acids. Great for heart health, it’s recommended to eat 1-2 portions of fish per week to protect against many diseases. Baked, steamed or grilled, there are countless ways to enjoy a fish supper. If you don’t like fish or need a boost, taking a fish oil supplement is a way to ensure you’re still consuming the fatty acids which are essential for our health.
Fish oil supplements are made from fat or oil extracted from fish. Often herring and tuna, but others too. Usually taken in capsule form, fish oil is one of the most consumed dietary supplements. Packed with omega 3, these fatty acids are essential for our health.
How Can Omega 3 Improve Health?
Omega 3 is a trio of fats which play an important role in keeping us healthy. These three fats are ALA (alpha-linolenic acid), DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid). These fat sources are found in animal sources, but also plants and seeds if you have a vegetarian or vegan diet.
Omega 3 ensures the normal functioning of our bodies. It’s not produced naturally by the body, so we must rely on consuming it either through our food choices or as a supplement.
Omega 3 is essential to helping us:
- Love our heart – lower your risk of heart disease with improved cholesterol and lowered blood pressure.
- Be clever and look after our brains – omega 3 can improve cognitive function and according to the Alzheimer's Society, Brain cells with high levels of omega-3 in their membranes are thought to be better at communicating with other cells, an important process for brain function.
- Put out the fire of inflammation – help reduce pain and inflammation throughout the body, especially important if you suffer with joint pain.
