FULL BODY HEALTH & WELLNESS SUPPORT Taking fish oil has numerous benefits and plays an important role in health. That's because the omega-3 in fish is high in two essential fatty acids crucial to our health: eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA.)
EPA is the most beneficial oil and is good for your joints, skin and heart. It can lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol, decrease your risk for cardiovascular disease, and can even aid in fighting off allergies. Ours brains are highly dependent on DHA and is needed for neuronal and cognitive development in children. It has also been associated with maintaining positive moods and helping depression.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN TO YOU? When it comes to reading your fish oil label, it is important that you look at the dosage of EPA compared to DHA. Many supplements vary in the ratio of EPA and DHA that they contain. It is best to buy supplements which list the actual dosage of both EPA and DHA. Since EPA is more beneficial, you want a supplement that contains more EPA than DHA.
NOT ALL FISH OILS ARE CREATED EQUAL When shopping for fish oil, purity is key. Supplements should be free from rancidity, PCB's, mercury, dioxin and other chemicals. To minimize contaminants in an unrefined supplement, it's best to find a fish oil made from small oily fish like anchovy, sardines or mackerel.
Other things to look for:
Oil was extracted using cold press techinique
Supplement was molecularly distilled
Wild-caught & not farm-raised fish
Companies that follow Good Manufacturing Practices
CHECK THE LABEL CAREFULLY The recommended dosage of fish oil can vary. For healthy adults, a combined daily total of 500 milligrams (mg) EPA + DHA is recommended.
Once you buy your fish oil supplement, check the label carefully to see if it recommends refrigeration to prevent spoiling. In most cases, you will want to store your fish oil in the refrigerator after opening to help ensure freshness.
