Fish oil contains two omega-3 fatty acids called docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). Some nuts, seeds, and vegetable oils contain alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which may be converted to DHA and EPA in the body.
In the estern countries, percentages of DHA and EPA have been found to be lower compared to other nations with lower heart disease rates, such as Japan. High levels of omega-6 fatty acids have been linked to an increased risk of some conditions such as heart disease and depression.
The fish oil benefits include decreasing the risk of heart disease and stroke while also helping reduce symptoms of depression, hypertension, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), joint pain, arthritis and chronic skin ailments like eczema.
Fish oil intake has also been associated with aiding the body in weight loss, fertility, pregnancy and increased energy. Prescription fish oil has even been approved by the FDA to lower unhealthy high triglyceride levels.
Most of the fish oil benefits are because it’s one of nature’s richest sources of omega-3 fatty acids. While fish oil benefits are numerous, there are some false claims on how to use this incredible supplement.
Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is an omega-3 fatty acid that is a primary structural component of the human brain, cerebral cortex, skin, and retina. Our OmegaDHA Oil is a quality source of Omega 3 and an exceptional source of DHA.
Our Pure Fish Oil capsules leave most fish oils standing in terms of its EPA and DHA levels. With 700mg of Omega 3 in each capsule you’ll be lucky to find a product to match this strength in the high street.
The oil goes primarily comes from mackerel and goes through a 5-stage cleaning process to ensure that any Dioxins, Mercury, Furins and PCB’s are well below even the maximum levels allowed by the EC. Additionally they only require monitoring of 6 contaminants whereas our fish oil is routinely tested for 209 substances.
This strength is achieved by concentrating the Omega 3 content of fish oil in a special process that also helps to purify and deodorise the oil. Cod Liver Oil is, as the name suggests, from the livers of cod. Fish oils on the other hand, come from oily fish such as mackerel where the whole body contains oils. The oils differ in that Cod Liver Oil contains vitamins A and D, whilst Fish Oils contain negligible levels of these vitamins but have high levels of the fatty acids EPA and DHA. If you are taking a multivitamin product containing vitamins A and D then Fish Oil is probably the best one to choose.
Fish Oil is highly Anti-inflammatory
The DHA and EPA in Fish oil has been shown in studies to regulate the micro RNA in the Colon, thus interacting with our immune systems. The main pathways it down regulates are Cox-2 , Nf-kB, iNOS, IL-6 and EGFR. These are often elevated in states of disease such as Gastro Intestinal disorders, AutoImmune reactions (viral) and also Cancer. You can learn more about these pathways and how they relate to disease states in our BiohackIT tool.
Use Fish oil with Astaxanthin
An animal study revealed that when the antioxidant astaxanthin is combined with fish oil, the immune-boosting power is multiplied. The researchers believe that the results of this study are definitely applicable to human health. They conclude that the study reinforces the health-promoting effects of habitual fish consumption.

name 20:5(n-3). In chemical structure, EPA is a carboxylic acid with a 20-carbon chain and five cisdouble bonds; the first double bond is located at the third carbon from the omega end.
