Fish Oil is a great supplement because it contains essential fatty acids that promote heart health. Fish Oil is the only source of Omega-3 fatty acids that is bioavailable.

This supplement is extracted from the tissues of fish with exceptionally oily bodily content such as tuna, mackerel, salmon, halibut, cod liver and herring. These fish develop this oil in their bodies when they eat micro-algae, which helps in the synthesis of these acids. Unfortunately, Omega-3 fatty acids cannot be produced by the body and thus must be supplemented in the diet.

CONCENTRATION OF FISH OIL

This particular fish oil contains at least 16% EPA and 12% DHA.

FISH OIL SIDE EFFECTS

Fish Oil is considered to be a safe supplement by the FDA. Because there has been recent public outcry about the mercury content of fish, there has also been some scrutiny on the Fish Oil market as to whether the product contains poisons or not. However, because mercury and other harmful toxins are absorbed into the tissue of the fish, not the oil, this makes Fish Oil safe and non-toxic.

The recommended dosage of Fish Oil should be heeded, however, or else adverse side effects are possible. Side effects resulting from overuse include diarrhea, acid-reflux and general gastrointestinal upset. Anyone that is allergic to fish or taking blood thinners should avoid this product or talk to a doctor before use.
