Fish Oil Supplements

Our overall health is important to our well being, and how we feel on a daily basis and interact with others. Heart health is a very important element of that, and taking care of our heart is extremely important. You may have heard how important things like extra fiber and lowering cholesterol are to the health of your heart, but you may not have heard that fish oil supplements can also play an important role as well. Another word for fish oil supplements is Omega 3 or fatty acids. These oils can help to regulate the levels of cholesterol in the body. It is best to get Omega 3 fish oils from fish naturally. Some examples of excellent fish that have high levels are trout, herring, salmon, tuna, and mackerel. It is recommended that you eat at least two servings of fish per week, or seafood in general. Of course, many of us also know that seafood is very expensive, or that cooking fish is not as easy to incorporate into our lives as one might think. That is where fish oil supplements come in. They are there to help “make up” for the lost amount of seafood we don't consume. The American Heart Association recommends that we consume about 1mg of fish oil daily. Since the popularity of fish oil supplements has risen, it's important to know what to look for when buying them, since there are so many different brands out there readily available today.

When looking for fish oil supplements, it's important to know which fish provide the best source and the most potent form of Omega 3 oils. Generally, cod liver oil is the most popular choice; however you will also see supplements that simply say fish oil on them. Look for capsules that are clear and not cloudy, as this means they may have filler or chemicals in them, and are not pure fish oil. Some fish oil supplements also come with other vitamins added like vitamin A or vitamin D. This should help to give you a boost, and can be extra beneficial. While the benefits of fish oil supplements are to help you heart, they can also boost the immune system, detoxify the body, and give you more energy. Many people claim that after taking fish oil supplements, their skin was smoother and suppler with fewer blemishes. Still others who have been taking fish oil supplements for some time claim that their arthritis has diminished or disappeared completely. The benefits of fish oil are far reaching and are much more than just a cholesterol regulator. Many people also claim that fish oil supplements can help to boost the immune system, and those who take it regularly find that they are sick much less often. Just like any other vitamin or nutritional supplement, it is important to do your research before buying any. Ask your doctor his or her opinion on fish oil supplements. Read medical articles and testimonials, and then make the decision that you feel most comfortable with.
