Fish oil is a very critical supplement that I feel nearly everyone should be taking at some level. It is one of the most studied supplements in the world, and you will have a hard time finding research, doctors, or nutritionists, who are against taking some type of marine oil.
Marine oils are rich in omega- fatty acids containing eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). These acids that play a critical role in brain function and are known to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. They contain anti-inflammatory properties and are hormone-like compounds that affect almost every system in the body.
Why can’t we just eat some fish and be good, you ask? Well, most of our fish is either poorly farm raised, or contains a lot of heavy metals, and do not have the amount of EPA and DHA necessary to reap the full benefits of this superfood (there are still some great fish out there, so keep eating fish).
We can also clear up another nutrient deficiency with supplementation; Omega-3 fatty acid/ fish oil supplements. Since our country has dramatic imbalances in omega- to omega-6 fatty acids (about 20:1, when it should be 3:1). The benefits of fish oil run deep which include increased brain function, reducing inflammation, and improving lipid profiles.The Omega 3 Fat is essential for healthy hormonal balance, brain health, joint health, weight loss, metabolism,. Fish oil also plays a role in relaxation, contributing to a good night’s sleep.
Because we have limited access to fresh, wild caught fish, it is important to get a healthy dose of omega-3’s from high-quality fats from fish each day. Nordic Naturals and SFH are the highest quality fish oil on the market, sourced right from the Norwegian seas.
The liquid also tastes better than most on the market with various flavors available. No fishy aftertaste or burps with the caps or liquid. The liquid does have more bang for the buck. We suggest buying both so you can have caps for traveling. We recommend these two also because of Vitamin D, which is critically important as it is in every human cell in the body. Take 1-2 tsp. Or 2-4 or more caps a day getting at least 1,500-3,000 mg of EPA/DHA per day.
