Salmon is an oily fish that lives in cold water and just one of the oily types of cold water fish that contain significant amounts of the Omega 3 fatty acids EPA (Eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid). Other types of oily fish include Mackerel, Herring, Sardines, Tuna and Swordfish.

These fish don’t actually produce the Omega 3 fatty acids themselves but instead they accumulate them in their bodies by eating micro algae or by eating other fish that have eaten micro algae. Obviously those at the top of the food chain are likely to contain more of these essential fatty acids. We cannot produce Omega 3 fatty acids either so must also source them from our diets.

Unfortunately, fish like Salmon are the only real source of EPA and DHA available to us. There is a plant based Omega 3 fatty acid known as ALA (Alpha linolenic acid) however our bodies cannot efficiently convert this fatty acid into the more beneficial EPA and DHA.

Some researchers go as far as to say it is the lack of Omega 3 fatty acids in our diets combined with consumption of too much Omega 6 that is singularly responsible for the massive rise in heart disease and inflammatory conditions, allergies and skin problems we have seen over the past few decades. This is why fish oil is so important.

A major cause of concern regarding fish and therefore fish oil is the fact that our oceans and rivers are polluted and therefore so are our fish. This is particularly true in the case of predatory fish like Salmon as they eat other fish so the levels of toxins can accumulate. As a result of this it is recommended that we only eat one or two portions of oily fish a week at the most. This is hardly ideal when Salmon for example can contain high amounts of the Omega 3 fatty acids we need so badly not only to survive but to be in the best health physically and mentally.

Fortunately there is a way round this problem. Salmon Fish oil or any other fish oil can be purified to remove these toxins leaving only the concentrated Omega 3 fatty acids that we need. However, not all fish oils are subjected to the sophisticated distilling and purifying processes required to remove these toxins. When choosing a fish oil, shop around for one that is high quality pharmaceutical grade fish oil and buy the best you can find. When it comes to fish oil you can’t afford to buy the cheapest or you might get more than you bargained for.
