10 reasons to take fish oilPeople ask me everyday, what is the best supplement to take.  I often times reply, that is an impossible question because different supplements help a variety of issues, but I do always say that if you are going to take one thing…

YOU BETTER TAKE YOUR FISH OIL

Fish oil is very high in omega 3 fatty acids, particularity EPA and DHA.  So, if you are still on the fence about if you want to take fish oil…

Here are my 10 reasons you should:

Blood Pressure – Hypertension (high blood pressure0 is also known as the silent killer.  Many people have elevated blood pressure and do not even know it.  Numerous studies have shown that omega 3 fatty acids can help promote healthy blood pressure without side effects of medications.

Cholesterol – High cholesterol can increase your risk for heart disease and strokes.   Fish oil is a great natural way to improve your cholesterol.  Fish Oil helps lower the bad cholesterol (LDL & triglycerides) while at the same time raise your good cholesterol.  Fish Oil can also improve other risk factors for cholesterol such as particle size and c-reactive protein.

Blood Sugar – People who consume fish oil on a regular basis have low blood sugars.  Remember diabetes is the number one cause of kidney failure, adult onset blindness, and lower limb amputations.

Joint Mobility – Omega 3 fatty acids are natural anti-inflammatory agents.  One studied showed that people who took Aleve and fish oil needed less Aleve.

Concentration – Omega 3 fatty acids, particularly DHA are very high in the brain.  This is why they call fish brain food.  Studies have shown improvement in behavior and school performance in children with ADHD and autism when taking fish oil.

Constipation – Omega 3 fatty acids have been shown to help regulate bowel movements

Eczema – to truly improve eczema and psoriasis you need to begin with the gut; but fish oil and omega 3 fatty acids have been shown to help improve the skin of individuals suffering with eczema

Sexual Health – Because omega 3 fatty acids are natural blood thinners they improve blood flow to all areas in the body which helps promote sexual health

Mood Swings & Hot Flashes – Omega 3 fatty acids have been shown to help with  mood swings and hot flashes due to menopause and PMS

Heart Health – By promoting healthy blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar and reducing inflammation omega 3 fatty acids have been shown to reduce the risk of heart attacks and strokes.  Some studies have shown that when you combine fish oil with other medications to reduce heart attacks you get a 20% further reduction in heart attacks and strokes

 

Remember not all fish oil is the same.
