Are you taking enough Fish Oil?

Posted by Michael Anderson on

Fish oil is found in oily fish, such as salmon, herring, mackerel, sardines or anchovies. It’s naturally rich in omega 3 fatty acids including EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), which are important for many aspects of health. Our bodies can't produce omega 3 by themselves, so we need to get it by eating certain foods or taking a supplement.

You may be asking yourself, why do I need to take fish oil? Well it offers a wide range of health benefits;

* It supports the development of the brain, eyes and nerves, and may help verbal learning and memory in some children.
* Supports normal growth and cell function, and the maintenance of general health and wellbeing.
* Helps brain health and supports memory and concentration.
* Maintains the flexibility of blood vessels to promote healthy blood flow.
* Helps maintain normal cholesterol levels in healthy people.
* Helps lower triglyceride levels within the normal range in healthy individuals.
* May help to support normal blood pressure.
* Helps maintain joint health, great for aches and pains.
* Great for skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and dry eyes.

The suggested daily amount of omega 3 is 610mg for men and 430mg for women,which can be met by consuming two to three portions of oily fish each week, or by taking a supplement.
