Benefits of Taking Fish Oil
I have been on a journey to a healthier lifestyle for some time now. I am learning new things every day and I seem to be researching constantly. From starting my day with smoothies to adding in essential nutrients and trying to eat what is best for my body it IS a journey! I know I may be late to the ball game when it comes to Fish Oil, but I will admit, when everyone first started talking about it, I thought it just sounded weird. I mean “Fish Oil”? Do you take Fish Oil? Well, I was at Walmart earlier this week and when I walked past the Nature Made display, I stopped and checked out the different vitamins. First of all, I noticed that the prices were outstanding – I mean, there were lots of options for just $4.44! And there it was…the bottle of Fish Oil just calling out to me to give it a try. So, it ended up in my cart with all my fresh fruits and veggies for my smoothies.
Now, here is what I have learned and why I have started taking Nature Made Fish Oil. Nature Made is the nation’s #1 best-selling brand for quality vitamins, minerals and supplements* to help support our nutritional goals.
First of all, there are few supplements out there that offer as many benefits as fish oil, so that means that just about everyone can benefit from taking Fish Oil.
Here are a few of the benefits of Fish Oil that struck my interest:
- Helps to maintain strong bones
- Supports healthy cholesterol levels
- Boosts your mood – By supplementing with fish oil, you will naturally support your own serotonin release in the body, which may help manage stress and increase your mood
- Aid the body in weight loss
- Help maintain healthy skin
- Can aid in heart disease, ADHD, anxiety, depression, diabetes and more
- There is also evidence that fish oil prevents wrinkles and can aid in anti-aging
Fish oil is a form of fatty acid that is derived from the tissues of oily fish. It contains the omega-3 fatty acids, including Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which are what has gained the most attention with regard to health research.
For most, a 1,000mg dose of fish oil daily is a good amount and the most scientifically studied dosage.
Consider using fish oil, in junction with eating well for your body (a plan that is rich in fresh fruits and vegetables) and you will support overall health and well-being!
