Fish OilFish oil is the oil present in the tissues of fatty fish such as sardines, salmon, herring, lake trout, mackerel and albacore tuna. Fish oil, whether consumed by eating fish or taking fish oil supplements, offers the body omega-3 fatty acids such as EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) that have been proven to reduce arterial plaque and lower triglycerides, blood pressure and cholesterol.
Fish oil contains omega-3 fatty acids due to the fact that fish either consume micro algae or eat other fish that consume high levels of micro algae.
Many studies have been done on fish oils that contribute its consumption with everything from relieving arthritis and reducing certain cancers, to increasing respiratory health and reducing signs of ADD and ADHD.
