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)
