Omega 3 Info

Fish oil vitamin E

When choosing a fish oil, it is vital that you opt for a high quality one.  Fish oil is extremely susceptible to oxidation the moment it is extracted from the fish and will go rancid very quickly if preventive measures are not taken.  Taking an inferior fish oil that has started to become rancid can increase the number of free radicals roaming about in the body, counteracting any health benefits from the fish oil itself.

In order to protect the oil from becoming rancid, good fish oil must contain a powerful fat soluble antioxidant such as tocopherol (Vitamin E) to protect it and keep it fresh both within the capsule and the body!

Vitamin E is also a very powerful anti oxidant once inside the body thus helping the body to “flush out” any toxins that are “floating” around.

Fish Oil Supplement

Why are fish oil supplements so important to us

It is estimated that 85% or more of people in the Western world are deficient in omega-3 fatty acids and most get far too much of the omega-6 fatty acids. Vegetarian diets, for example, tend to be very high in omega-6.
Seemingly minor differences in their molecular structure make the two EFA families act very differently in the body. Although we do need both omega-3s and omega-6s it is becoming increasingly clear that an excess of omega-6 fatty acids can have dire consequences. Our ancestors evolved on a diet with a ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 of about 1:1. (most of the omega 3 came from consuming fish ) A massive change in dietary habits over the last few centuries has changed this ratio to something closer to 20:1 and this spells trouble.

FISH OIL SUPPLEMENT – QUALTIY

fish oil supplements tend to vary alot. It is very important to read all of the information that is presented to you, these days every fish oil supplement makes claims of the purest and strongest omega 3 fish oil on the market, you only need to look on the internet to see that this is the case. When choosing your fish oil supplement there are two very important factors to watch out for, these are the strength – concentration of the oil and the quantity. This is better explained in the know your oil article.

Fish oil supplements Cod liver oil and fish oils are not the same. Cod liver oil is extracted from cod liver and is an excellent source of vitamins A and D. Fish oils are extracted from the tissues (flesh) of fatty fish like salmon and herring and are good sources of EPA. Fish oils contain very little vitamin A and D, but cod liver oil does contain EPA and DHA. However, the concentration and amounts of essential fatty acids that are found in fish oil supplements like cod liver oil are very very low. You would probably exceed the recommended daily intake of vitamins A and D if you were to try to obtain therapeutic amounts of EPA from cod liver oil.

Supplementing with a fish oil supplement has been found to be entirely safe even for periods as long as 7 years and no significant adverse effects have been reported.

Omega 3 Fatty Acid

Omega-3 fatty acids: where to find them?

Although no single food alone can make a person healthy, eating more fish is one way that most of us can help improve our diets—and our health. Many of the studies about beneficial omega-3 fatty acids focus on fish as the primary source. Salmon, sardines, tuna and even shellfish are rich in omega-3 fatty acid content, but increasing your consumption of all types of fish and seafood is NOT recommended if you are trying to obtain a therapeutic effect from the omega 3, this is something that should be done with a clean, strong grade of pharmaceutical strength fish oil.

Sorting out your fats

Experts agree that a diet based on moderation and variety is essential to good health. In other words, eating some of a wide variety of foods provides more complete nutrition and is more beneficial overall than a diet that relies on just a few foods.

Increase Your Omega-3 fatty acids

omega-3 fatty acids are generally lacking in our diets. They are found in fish, shellfish, tofu, almonds, walnuts as well as in some vegetable oils such as linseed, nuts and canola (rapeseed). Omega-3s have a positive effect on our health. Another intriguing area of research on omega-3 fatty acids pertains to their role in brain and visual function, as some research suggests they may have a role in preventing macular degeneration, a common form of blindness, and have beneficial effects in some depressive disorders.
Continuing research involves the role of omega-3 fatty acids and the immune system, and suggests a positive influence on rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, lupus, kidney disease and cancer.

It is recommended that you eat fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids twice a week in order to reap specific health benefits. Although all fish aren’t high in omega-3s, they still can contribute important amounts of these fatty acids if they’re eaten regularly. The following chart provides a general overview of fish and their omega-3 fat content.

Remember to obtain a therapeutic effect from omega 3 fatty acids; clean, strong fish oil is more preferable due to the high level of pollution in today’s oceans.
