Fish oil can be obtained from eating fish or by taking supplements. Fish that are especially rich in the beneficial oils known as omega-3 fatty acids includes mackerel, herring, tuna, salmon, cod liver, whale blubber, and seal blubber. Two of the most important omega-3 fatty acids contained in fish oil are Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).
According to research conducted at Harvard University, omega-3 fatty acid deficiency ranked as the sixth highest killer of Americans.
If you don’t eat a lot of oily fish, taking a fish oil supplement could help you get enough omega-3 fatty acids and the amazing health benefits that comes with it.
