In April, July and September of this year fish oil study results were released. The results claimed that fish oil wasn’t beneficial in heart health but deeper research into the study itself proved that the particular study was flawed. The flaws were claims such as a far lower than recommended daily dose, inconsistent follow-up/testing on each participant, various sources of omega 3’s were used like margarines spread on bread several times a day, questionable quality fish oil brands, participants who had pre-existing heart issues, and several other factors were at fault.
While supplements alone won’t cure conditions, they- along with a good diet of whole food fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean meat and fish will be a benefit to the body. Try eating smaller, wild caught, cold water fish 2-3 times a week for the fish oil benefits. These fish types include salmon, mackerel, sardines, anchovies and herring.
When choosing a fish oil supplement buy the better quality brands; they might cost more but you’ll benefit more. Also choose the highest EPA/DHA you can find; aim for at least 300/200 but any amount will help.
Some of the benefits of fish oil include heart health, stroke, high cholesterol, depression, cancers, diabetes, chronic joint pain, neurological disorders, MS, osteoporosis, fertility and pregnancy, fat loss and weight control, inflammation, ADD, healthy skin (especially psoriasis and acne), brain trauma, IBD, macular degeneration and ulcers.
