The disgusting liquid just sitting on that tablespoon waiting to be gulped down now, it turns out, may be extremely beneficial.
Perhaps more so than was believed during childhood ages when kids were being forced by moms to take it, fish oil has a surprising number of health benefits.
Fish oil comes from fish like tuna, cod and salmon and has omega 3 fatty acids in it. These acids are vital for brain development and many other body functions. They can help improve memory and concentration. Deficiencies in omega 3 have been thought to cause depression, Alzheimer’s, ADD and ADHD.
It can help regarding heart health and decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease. It aids in raising good cholesterol levels, thus lowering the chance for a heart disease. Omega 3 makes the blood less likely to clot, thereby also helping to prevent strokes and heart attacks.
Inflammation is linked to several health issues, such as arthritis, heart disease and Crohn’s Disease, and the omega 3 in fish oil also helps with the cycle of inflammation in the body, so it can help with these health problems as well.
Fish oil has been linked with helping to reduce the chances of certain cancers, such as prostate, colon and breast cancers by stopping the development and growth of the cancer cells in the body as well as killing the cancer cells already existing.
Because of fish oils’ ability to reduce inflammation it also aids in the production of elastin and collagen, which are key components to youthful skin, hence reducing wrinkles.
It can also aid the immune system because it helps the production of serotonin, a hormone that makes people happy and can also help lower stress.
The fish oil is always recommended for the diet of the pregnant mothers because not only can it lower the chances of having a child prematurely but it also helps in the baby’s mental, physical and behavioral development.
It’s amazing how this one pill can either repair or reduce the risk for a variety of illnesses, diseases and outward physical appearance. When taking this pill though, it is best not to overdo it as it can cause nausea and an upset stomach.
Also, make sure to find the best brand of fish oil as some contain mercury, which can be deadly and also cause infertility among other health issues.
Shop around to find which brand is best and also consult a doctor, particularly if you are already on medication or suffer from any illnesses or diseases. That being said, this pill may very well be the immediate cure for a variety of health issues.
