Suffering from muscle or joint soreness after exercises? Well fish oil can help in assisting your recovery process. As when we work out, oxidative stress occurs which creates inflammation within your body. So ensuring that your body recover properly mean we will be able to train harder at a greater intensity for longer!
Fish oil is loaded with omega-3 fatty acids that can help to lower blood pressure, reduce inflammation and prevent heart disease. Fish oil is derived from the tissue of oily fish with the best source of fish being cold-water fatty fish. Humans consume fish oil through fish themselves or fish oil tablets.
Why we need it? As our bodies are able to make most of the fats we need, this is not true for omega-3 fatty acids. When it comes to these essential fats, we need to get them from omega 3 foods or supplements.
So if you are someone who eats fish 2-3 times per week, you may not need to supplement but if you aren’t a fan of fish than supplementing fish oil into your diet will provide great benefits. Or alternatively there are plenty of other foods to help you reap the heart-healthy, brain-boosting, and inflammation-fighting benefits of omega-3 fatty acid. These foods include: Wild Rice, Flaxseed and Flaxseed Oil, Eggs and Walnuts.
One last fact to convince you about how good fish oil is! Scientific studies have and will continue to back up all of the incredible fish oil benefits from eczema and fertility to heart disease and many types of cancer!! How amazing!
