What is Fish Oil?
Fish oi is exactly as the name implies, another name for fish fats, and it’s one of the main reasons people consume fish. The best source of fish oil is cold-water fish such as anchovies, sardines, mackerel, salmon, and herring.
While other easily-accessible fish like tuna have decent fish oil content, they’re not as high in Omega-3 fatty acids, and because of their place in the food chain, they also tend to be considerable higher in toxins and heavy metals such as mercury, PCB, and pesticides than the healthier cold-water oily fish varieties.
Cold-water fish oil is rich in the highly beneficial Omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) which are renowned nutritionally for their potential help in fighting inflammation and heart disease, promoting cardiovascular health, increasing cognitive abilities, and improving fat loss.
Who should use it?
Fish has always been considered a good source of protein and healthy fats, but in recent years it’s also become a major source of dietary toxins due to environmental pollutants that the fish ingest. A supplemental source of tested cold-water fish such as Premium Fish Fats Gold is an excellent option for those who don’t like the taste of fish or don’t have the time, energy, or money to hunt down toxin-free fish sources at their natural grocery stores.
When and how should it be used?
When using a supplemental form of fish oil, make sure you’re using a pure and tested source like Premium Fish Fats Gold. Thanks to the concentrated nature, one to two softgel capsules can be taken daily with meals, and if you’re taking a daily multivitamin or other vitamins, it’s ideal to take them along with your fish oil in order to maximize the absorption of any fat-soluble vitamins.
