Why should I take a fish oil supplement?

Fish oil is a form of fatty acid which ifish oils derived from the tissues of oily fish. It contains  omega-3 fatty acids, including eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), both of which provide the following health benefits:

DHA and EPA contribute to:

  • the maintenance of normal blood triglyceride levels and of normal blood pressure
  • the normal function of the heart

DHA also contributes to:

  • the maintenance of normal brain function
  • normal vision
  • maternal intake of DHA contributes to the normal brain development of the fetus and breast fed infants

Note: Individuals who consume a high amount of fatty fish in their diet tend not to need to supplement with fish oil capsules as much or as often.
