Summary of Fish Oil
Primary Information, Benefits, Effects, and Important Facts (sourced from examine.com)
Fish oil is a common term used to refer to two kinds of omega-3 fatty acids: eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). These omega-3 fats are usually found in fish, animal products and phytoplankton. Fish oil is recommended as a source of these omega-3 fats as they are the cheapest and most common source of them.
Fish oil provides a variety of benefits when supplemented, particularly when the ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in the body is almost equal (1:1). The average diet (red meat, eggs, and so forth) are high in omega-6 fatty acids, which is why fish oil is recommended (to balance the ratio).
A ratio of roughly 1:1 is associated with healthier blood vessels, a lower lipid count and a reduced risk for plaque buildup. Fish oil can also decrease the risk of diabetes and several forms of cancer, including breast cancer.
Fish oil works primarily through eicosanoids, which are signalling molecules. A proper ratio of omega 3:6 fatty acids will influence which eicosanoids are released in response to stress.
It should be noted that fish oil can also reduce triglycerides in people with high triglyceride levels. However, it can also increase cholesterol, so care should be taken before supplementing fish oil for this purpose.
Omega-3 Fish Oil Supplements for Heart Disease (sourced from webmd.com)
In the past 10 years, many Americans have turned to omega-3 fish oil supplements, which have benefits for healthy people and also those with heart disease.
Omega-3 fish oil contains both docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). Omega-3 fatty acids are essential nutrients that are important in preventing and managing heart disease.
Findings show omega-3 fatty acids may help to:
- Lower blood pressure
- Reduce triglycerides
- Slow the development of plaque in the arteries
- Reduce the chance of abnormal heart rhythm
- Reduce the likelihood of heart attack and stroke
- Lessen the chance of sudden cardiac death in people with heart disease
The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends that everyone eats fish (particularly fatty, coldwater fish) at least twice a week. Salmon, mackerel, herring, sardines, lake trout, and tuna are especially high in omega-3 fatty acids. While foods are your best bet for getting omega-3s in your diet, fish oil supplements are also available for those who do not like fish. The heart-healthy benefits of regular doses of fish oil supplements are unclear, so talk to your doctor to see if they're right for you. If you have heart disease or high triglyceride levels, you may need even more omega-3 fatty acids. Ask your doctor if you should take higher doses of fish oil supplements to get the omega-3s you need.
Fish Oil May Reduce Inflammation and Symptoms of Inflammatory Disease (sourced from healthline.com)
Inflammation is the immune system's way of fighting infection and treating injury to the body. However, inflammation can sometimes occur at low levels over long periods. This is called chronic inflammation. It can worsen certain chronic diseases such as obesity, diabetes, depression and heart disease. In these instances, reducing inflammation can help treat symptoms of the disease.
Fish oil has anti-inflammatory properties and can help treat diseases that involve chronic inflammation. For example, in stressed and obese individuals, fish oil can reduce the production and gene expression of inflammatory molecules called cytokines.
Moreover, fish oil supplementation can significantly reduce joint pain, stiffness and medication needs in people with rheumatoid arthritis, a disease in which inflammation leads to painful joints.
Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is another disorder worsened by inflammation. However, currently there is no clear evidence on whether fish oil improves symptoms of IBD.
BOTTOM LINE: Fish oil has strong anti-inflammatory effects and can help reduce symptoms of inflammatory diseases, especially rheumatoid arthritis.
Things to Note (sourced from examine.com)
- Though fish oil is not a stimulant, it increases brain activity, so a stimulatory effect may be felt after supplementation
- Most of fish oil's beneficial effects happen over a period of days and weeks, rather than immediately
- Post-supplementation "fish burps" can be avoided by consuming fish oil with food, or freezing the capsules before supplementation
