  • Fish oil's benefits are due to its omega-3 fats
    that lower triglycerides and the bad cholesterol,
    reduce anxiety and prevent Alzheimer's, and lower
    cancer risk of the breast, colon, and prostate.
  • They can also replace the anti-inflammatory drugs
    used to treat arthritis. If you're diabetic or on
    blood-thinners, avoid fish oil. If you are not,
    take it with antioxidants in a dose not more than
    3 g a day unless so advised by your doctor.
  • Some Fats Are Good, Such As The Omega-3 Fats

  • These PUFAs or omega-3 fatty acids include
    eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic
    acid (DHA), two of the three essential omega-3
    fatty acids the body cannot produce and must
    derive from food sources like fish or fish oil,
    the third one being alpha-linolenic acid (ALA),
    derived from plant sources like nuts and seeds.
    The human body can convert some of the ALA into
    EPA and DHA but not efficiently or in sufficient
    quantities.

  • You Find Omega-3 In Fish And Fish Oil
  • Of course, whole fish is most beneficial. But
    these days, fish also contains a high level of
    mercury in thanks to pollution.
  • Hence, the oil extracted from the tissues of
    cold-water oily fish like mackerel, sardine, late
    trout, herring, albacore tuna, and salmon, which
    is sold as syrups or pills, remains the source of
    choice for these omega-3 fatty acids.

  • Until recently, fish oil was touted to be a
    panacea thanks to its omega-3 content, but more
    and more findings suggest that it may not be an
    absolute champion after all.
  • Lets take a look at the purported health
    benefits of omega 3 fatty acids.

Benefits of Fish Oil
  • 1. For The Heart
  • Heart disease is the leading cause of death
    worldwide.
  • Studies have shown that people who eat a lot of
    fish have much lower rates of heart disease.
  • There are a number of risk factors for heart
    disease, and many of these appear to be reduced
    by fish or fish oil consumption.

Benefits of Fish Oil
  • 2. Lower Cholesterol And Blood Pressure
  • It can increase levels of HDL (the "good")
    cholesterol. However, it does not appear to
    reduce levels of LDL (the "bad") cholesterol
  • 3. For The Brain And The Nerves
  • Your brain is made up of nearly 60 fat, and much
    of this fat is omega-3 fatty acids. Therefore,
    omega-3s are essential for normal brain function
    (27, 28).
  • In fact, some studies have shown that people with
    certain mental disorders have lower omega-3 blood
    levels

Benefits of Fish Oil
  • 4. Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder
  • A number of behavioral disorders in children,
    such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder
    (ADHD), involve hyperactivity and inattention.
  • Given that omega-3s make up a significant
    proportion of the brain, getting enough of them
    may be important for preventing behavioral
    disorders in early life.

Benefits of Fish Oil
  • 5. Alzheimers Disease
  • Studies have shown that fish oil and omega-3
    supplementation can improve symptoms of
    depression.
  • Moreover, some studies have shown that oils rich
    in EPA help reduce depressive symptoms more than
    DHA.
  • 6. Anxiety And Depression
  • Depression is predicted to become the second
    leading cause of disease burden globally by 2030.
  • Interestingly, people with major depression
    appear to have lower blood levels of omega-3s.

Benefits of Fish Oil
  • 7. For The Bones And The Joints
  • During old age, bones can begin to lose their
    essential minerals, making them more likely to
    break. This can lead to diseases such as
    osteoporosis and osteoarthritis.
  • Calcium and vitamin D are known to be very
    important for bone health, but some studies have
    suggested that omega-3 fatty acids can also be
    beneficial.

Benefits of Fish Oil
  • 8. For The Eye For The Skin
  • Similarly to the brain, omega-3 fats make up an
    important part of the structure of the eye.
    Evidence has shown that people who don't get
    enough omega-3s have a greater risk of eye
    diseases
  •  
  • 9. For The Immune System
  • Long chain omega-3 fatty acids may help to boost
    the immune system by enhancing the functioning of
    immune cells, according to new research.
