Studies Continue to Tout the Benefits of Fish Oil

Fish oil has been in the news a lot because of its many health benefits. In one study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, scientists from the UK reported that fish-derived Omega-3 was shown to help protect the blood vessels surrounding the heart and may help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.* While the American Heart Association and other experts recommend eating oily fish at least twice weekly, a daily fish oil supplement may also help boost your daily Omega-3 intake.* When choosing a fish oil supplement, here are some key features to look for:

  • High potency: Look at how much Omega-3 (not how much fish oil) is in each softgel. Choose a supplement that contains at least 1,000 mg Omega-3 per softgel.
  • Purity: Look for the IFOS (International Fish Oil Standards™) seal to ensure your fish oil exceeds published international standards for the lowest levels of toxins.
  • Freshness: Opt for a supplement packaged in a dark-colored bottle designed to protect the beneficial oils from light and moisture.
  • Enteric coating: Enteric-coated softgels are designed to help deliver the Omega-3 directly to the intestines where it is absorbed.* Lipase (an enzyme) may also be added to help with digestion of the oils.

In addition to their extensively studied heart health benefits†, Omega-3 essential fatty acids from fish—including EPA and DHA—have been shown to support brain, eye, and joint health as well as promote healthy immune function and mood.*

†Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA & DHA Omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.
