Turn to fish oil for your daily dose of Omega 3 fatty acids

Today, the word 'fat' has gathered all kinds of negative connotations. There are certain kinds of bad fats like saturated fat and trans fat that may be harmful for the health. But is important to remember, not all fats are bad for you. The body needs some good fats to ward of illnesses and Omega 3 fatty acids is one of them.

Fish oil or fish oil supplements are very rich in Omega 3 fatty acids. The body cannot make these by itself and must come from the food we consume.

The benefits of fish or fish oil for the heart are innumerable. Experts believe it increases the level of good HDL cholesterol and helps reduce blood pressure in those who suffer from high BP.

Additionally, Omega 3 fatty acids help neutralise the negative effects of Omega 6, too much of which may lead to clotting of the blood.

A great proportion of the brain is made of fat, almost 60%, and most of this is Omega 3 fatty acids. Fish oil may ensure appropriate brain functioning and reduce the risk of depression and other mental health disorders. Studies have shown that people with certain mental disorders have a lower level of omega 3 fatty acids in their blood.

Fish oil may also relieve symptoms of chronic inflammation due to its anti-inflammatory properties and may help manage rheumatoid arthritis.

You may want to start taking fish oil supplements if your diet is lacking in oily fish. Consult a doctor for the right dosage, depending on age. You can also get your source of omega 3 fatty acids from vegetarian sources like flaxseeds, walnuts or chia seeds.
