Fish Oil : Why People Take It & Why You Should Too

WHY DO PEOPLE TAKE FISH OIL SUPPLEMENTS?

That's a great question.

If you suggested for me to take fish oil 10 years ago I would have looked at you like you were crazy.

Not anymore, within the last few years I discovered how fish oil is an extremely healthy supplement. I really had no idea that oil from a fish could have such a positive health effect on the human body. I have been supplementing fish oil for the past 2 years and will probably never stop after learning this:

However the bottom line is:

Americans are severely lacking adequate amounts of omega-3 in their diets!

All of the fried foods lack omega-3 and are laden with omega-6 fatty acids.

This imbalance in omegas is not safe for our health and can lead to multiple health problems...

In fact, Harvard University recently conducted a study suggesting omega-3 fish oil deficiency is one of the top 10 causes of death in America!

That is one big reason to supplement with fish oil high in omega-3, especially if you don't eat fish.

Disease prevention is cheaper than disease treatment!

Surprisingly most fish oil supplements are lacking adequate amounts of Omega-3 (only around 300 mg of omega-3 per capsule). Ideally we would like a 2:1 or 1:1 ration of Omega-6 : Omega-3 but Americans currently stand at 20:1!

Fortunately some fish oil supplements can help change that. Just make sure when shopping for fish oil you buy the one with more omega-3!

Multiple recent scientific studies suggest many REAL benefits taking fish oil supplements.

From my research and the knowledge I learned from Dr. Brett Osborn and Dr. Josh Axe there have been numerous scientific studies suggesting the benefits of fish oil:

  • Reduces inflammation (Helps mitigate arthritis and joint pain)
  • Reduces belly fat*
  • Improves brain functions
  • Reverse dry eye
  • Boosts immunity
  • Cancer prevention
  • Cardiovascular health
  • Healthier skin and hair
  • Relieves depression and anxiety
  • Improves ADHD
  • Reduces risk of alzheimer’s
  • Increases gut health
  • Improves fertility

Why should you take fish oil?

With a list of benefits like that why would you NOT supplement fish oil?

* As always consult your primary physician before adding any supplement to your diet*

So far we have covered:

  • Why people take fish oil supplements.
  • What to look for when buying fish oil supplements.
  • The many benefits of fish oil supplementation.

If you would like to read more about my personal experience supplementing fish oil.

If not let's discuss it here!

So do you take fish oil supplements? If so, which ones?

Where do you buy your fish oil? And have you been supplementing the right one?
