When we refer to Fish oil we are actually referring to two kinds of omega-3 fatty acids: eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). These omega-3 fats are usually found in fish, animal products and phytoplankton.

Fish oil / Omega3’s provides a variety of benefits when supplemented, particularly when the ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in the body is almost equal (1:1). The average diet (red meat, eggs, and so forth) are high in omega-6 fatty acids, which is why fish oil is recommended as we need to balance out the ratio on Omega 3 v Omega 6

A ratio of roughly 1:1 is associated with healthier blood vessels, a lower lipid count and a reduced risk for plaque buildup. Fish oil can also decrease the risk of diabetes and several forms of cancer, including breast cancer.

Fish oil can also help with the following:

  • Insulin sensitivity
  • It’s an anti-inflammatory
  • Turns on fat burning genes
  • Turns off fat storing genes
  • Helps with depression
  • Reducing symptoms of ADAHD
  • May help decrease blood pressure
  • May also help lower cortisol (stress hormonne)

Maintenance Dosage: 3-7g a day in divided doses

Fat Loss Dosage Protocol: If you’re starting out on a fat loss plan you can add 1g of fish oil per % of body fat (along with 300g of L-Carnitine per % of body fat) for 30 days then back down to a maintenance dose.
