Benefits of Fish Oils

Posted by: Garden of Life on Monday, October 29, 2012
I love a perfectly grilled salmon fillet. Not only is it appealing to the taste buds, it's super healthy as well. Fish is high in Omega-3 fatty acids - essential for our bodies, but not found in many foods. So including fish oil in our diets is important. To get adequate levels of Omega-3 fatty acids, we would need to eat a lot of fish. And since we've all heard that there are concerns of rising mercury levels in our water supply, and therefore our fish, including a daily fish oil supplement is the way to go.

The benefits of fish oil are numerous. Softer skin and hair are changes you can see, but what's going on inside the body is where the true benefits lie. Evidence shows that taking a fish oil supplement can be helpful for:

- Lowering blood pressure
- Lower triglyceride levels
- Prevent heart disease
- Decrease risk of stroke
- Eye health, including improving both dry eyes and macular degeneration
- Lowering high blood pressure
- Menstrual pain
- Attention deficit-hyperactivity disorger
- Kidney problems
- Weight loss
- Asthma
- lowering high cholesterol
- Depression

Thats quite a list, isn't it? With so many potential benefits, you can see why just about everyone can benefit from taking a fish oil supplement. Check the label for specific dosing information; but studies are based on an average of 4 grams of fish oil per day.

Make sure the fish oil product you choose is from a reputable source. The finest fish oil supplements use purified oil from small fish, which have been shown to absorb less environmental toxins.

When your body is functioning at optimal levels, you can't help but be in a better mood. Try adding fish oil to your routine for a month, i'm willing to bet you'll find yourself happier and healthier.
