Ever wondered what is all the hype about Fish oil? Are there truly any substantial benefits that you can reap from this fatty source? Well, there certainly are heaps of benefits. Fish oil is a rich source of the two vital omega-3 fatty acids known as Eicosapentaenoic acid short for EPA and Docosahexaenoic acid short for DHA. It is commonly found in the fatty tissues of cold water fish such as salmon. For those individuals who eat little or no fish, fish oil is also available in supplement form.
Omega-3 is an essential fatty acid, which our body cannot produce on its own and hence it must be obtained from diet. As compared to Omega-6, Omega-3 these days is relatively rare in our diets. This results in an imbalance essential fats that drives inflammation and encourages various diseases.
Regular consumption of the omega-3 fatty acid can optimize fatty acid ratios and can aid in maintaining and protecting mental and physical health.
