Why Should I Take a Fish Oil Supplement?

Some people swear by taking a daily fish oil supplement, while others make a face at the mere suggestion. If you find yourself in the middle trying to decide if you should take one and what the benefits may be, here are a few things to consider:

Let’s talk about Omega-3
Fish oil supplements supply the essential fatty acid Omega-3. (Essential fatty acids are good-for-you fats used by every cell in your body to support and manage vital functions.) Because the body produces very little Omega-3 on its own, and because most Americans don’t get enough from food alone, taking a daily fish oil supplement can help supply additional Omega-3 fats.*

What are the benefits of taking fish oil supplements?
The healthy fats found in oily fish have been shown to promote heart health, in part due to their natural anti-inflammatory properties.* Both Omega-3 EPA and DHA are beneficial. EPA is best known for supporting cardiovascular health‡, healthy cholesterol levels, and a healthy mood, and it has also been linked to joint health and immune function support.* DHA is best known for supporting eye health and brain function.*

Worried about the fishy taste?
Renew Life uses enteric-coated softgels for our Norwegian Gold supplements so the fish oil is delivered directly to the intestines for better absorption and no fishy aftertaste or ‘repeat’.*

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