We’ve all been told over and over that fish oil is the gold standard in health supplements. But why is fish oil such a good product? What exactly are the health benefits of fish oil? Most importantly, why do we a CBD company care about fish oil and its benefits?
What is fish oil?
Fish oil comes from the fat and tissues of the more oily fish in the oceans. It includes fish such as herring, tuna, anchovies, and mackerel. It’s recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) that we eat fish one to two times a week. For some of us, that’s not practical. Fish oil supplements can help us to get those essential fatty acids.
What are the health benefits of fish oil?
Fish oil contains two very important omega 3 essential fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). EPA and DHA are the most important fatty acids because they are what our diets lack the most of.
The omega 3 fatty acid EPA has been shown, in studies, to help relieve inflammation inside the body and act as a neuroprotectant. Remember we when discussed why CBD is such a great health supplement for baby boomers and senior citizens? The essential fatty acid EPA has the same benefits and when working in conjunction with CBD can boost those effects. One study even showed that the EPA found in fish oil can help relieve hot flashes in menopausal women!
DHA has been shown to help improve brain health and vision as well. A lot of baby formulas are now being fortified with DHA due to the overwhelming evidence that shows that getting DHA supplemented early in life leads to better brain health and vision as well.
The benefits of your body getting enough DHA and EPA through fish oil is the overall anti-inflammatory properties. Having high levels of inflammation in your body can exasperate certain conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, chronic pain, heart health issues, and depression. The health benefits of fish oil are extremely important for people of all ages.
