Omega-3 fish oil (omega-3 rich fatty acids) are essential nutrients that are important in preventing and managing heart disease and many other health-related conditions. Fatty fish like salmon, sardines, or mackerel are rich in these omega-3 fatty acids, but most of us don’t consume enough of these important nutrients and it’s recommended to take the oral supplement.
The omega-3 fish oil contains both eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Research has found omega-3 fatty play important role in:
• Brain function
• Lowering blood pressure
• Preventing inflammations
• Normal growth and development
• Crohn’s disease
• Inflammatory bowel disease
Good quality fish oil supplements provide at least 1,000 mg EPA+DHA of the omega-3 fatty acids per serving and are certified by third-party labs to ensure purity, potency, purity, and freshness of the product. Don’t go overboard with fatty rich fish or omega-3 pills. If your diet contains too many omega-3 fatty acids, your immune system may suffer.
