fish oil

According to the latest scientific research, the health benefits of Omega-3 Fatty Acids in Fish Oil is very significant. Dietary sources of omega-3 fatty acids include Fish Oil and certain plant/nut oils. Fish Oil contains both docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). There is evidence from multiple studies supporting intake of recommended amounts of DHA and EPA in the form of dietary fish or Fish Oil supplements lowers triglycerides, reduces the risk of death, heart attack, dangerous abnormal heart rhythms, and strokes in people with known cardiovascular disease, slows the buildup of atherosclerotic plaques ("hardening of the arteries"), and lowers blood pressure slightly. However, high doses may have harmful effects, such as an increased risk of bleeding. Some studies show that Fish Oil supplements containing omega-3 essential fatty acids (EFAs) might help treat neck and back pain. Such supplements might be "a safer alternative" to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for some patients with spine-related pain.

The beneficial functions of Fish Oil include the followings:
Fish Oil may help prevent, or be a potent treatment for depression in some people. Omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acid which is found in Fish Oil may prevent or decrease rheumatoid arthritis. It may also boost immune function. It may help ward off diabetes as Omega-3 fatty acids appear to improve insulin function in overweight individuals who are vulnerable to type II diabetes. Omega-3 Fatty Acids appear to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke, and to improve heart health in general. Researchers at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center report that docosapentaenoic acid (DPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), a primary component of Omega-3's, provide significant protection against the development of coronary heart disease (CHD).
