It's widely recognised that there are approx 13 major benefits that may be derived from fish oil, these include:
- the support of heart health
- supports the treatment of certain mental disorders
- may aid weightloss
- supports eye health
- reduces inflammation
- supports healthy skin
- supports pregnancy and early life
- assists the reduction of liver fat
- assists to improve symptoms of depression
- assists to improve the attention in hyperactive children
- assists to prevent symptoms of mental decline
- assists to improve asthma symptoms
- assists to improve bone health
In my opinion the studies that have been conducted over the last 10 years or so support each of the benefits listed above.
So What's The Difference Between Different Fish Oil Brands?
I get asked this question all the time. The supplement world can be tricky and there is a huge difference between common supermarket brands of fish oil and the brands that deliver great results.
Studies have shown that over 70% of many large popular brands of fish oils aren't accurately showing the ingredients (link to findings) the same study found that over a quarter of them had high levels of oxidised (harmful) lipids and that 50% of Canadian based fish oil contains oxidised lipids.
This Study found that omega-3 fish oil products from three of the largest fish oil brands in the US were full of oxidized lipids, toxins and saturated fats. Yes, saturated fats in fish oil!
The bottom line here is that the fish oil industry has a big problem and that many of the top selling brands on the market have serious impurities.
This is the reason that I developed my own Fish Oil Omega 3 Plus.
Many other lesser quality brands are sourcing from large fish in areas where the fish are laden with heavy metals and use extraction method that uses a lot of gasses and chemicals in the process.
The other huge difference is in the initial taste and after taste, we use monk fruit to provide some natural sweetness along with lemon extract along with vitamin c and vitamin e which all combined gives it a very pleasant lemonade like flavour that even kids love. You won't get that really unpleasant initial taste and fishy reflux taste like you do with the cheaper supermarket brands.
My Fish Oil Omega-3 Plus also produces amazing anti inflammatory results not only for your heart health and conditions like arthritis, but if you suffer from eczema, dermatitis or psoriasis and you use a multi daily dose (one teaspoon three times a day) it can really assist to clean up the skin, especially when used in conjunction with a Probiotic and organic skin care.
