There's a lot of interest in the health benefits of fish oil. Cynics in dealing with natural health care insist there
has been an unjustified hype surrounding the health benefits of fish oil. However, research consistently supports the position that fish oil is generally healthy, as reported by Doctors Health Press on Feb. 11, 2014.

Fish oil supplements really do appear to contribute to a healthy lifestyle and protect you from disease. Dr. Victor Marchione says they are a foundational supplement which everybody, regardless of their age, weight, fitness level or overall health, should take. Research supports that fish oil can assist in weight loss, lower cholesterol, improve heart function, and increase brain function and memory. It has also been suggested by research that there is a possible link between prostate cancer risk and the use of fish oil. The data has indicated an effective therapeutic dose of fish oil is 1,000 mg to 1,500 mg.

You can obtain fish oil from eating fish or by taking supplements, reports Medline Plus. Fish that are particularly rich in the beneficial fish oils known as omega-3 fatty acids include mackerel, salmon, sturgeon, mullet, tuna, bluefish, anchovy, sardines, trout, herring and menhaden. About 1 gram of omega-3 fatty acids is found in about 3.5 ounces of fish. Fish oil supplements generally contain small amounts of vitamin E to prevent spoilage. These supplements might also be combined with calcium, iron, or vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, C, or D. Dr Harold Mandel Online offers fish oil supplements to help support good health for sale online.
