Fish Oil

What is Fish Oil?
Fish oil is important in a diet because it is rich with omega-3 fatty acids. These fatty acids are not produced by the fish themselves, but rather are derived from food at the bottom of the food chain—microalgae. Prey fish like sardines and herring store microalgae and pass it along to bigger fish when they are consumed.

What are the health benefits of Fish Oil?
Omega-3 fatty acids are believed to be important in reducing inflammation and they help treat and prevent many problems, such as arterial plaque, low libido, menopause, muscle pain and spasm, carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), gum disease, sunburn, rosacea, hair loss, cold hands and feet, and asthma.

Where can I find Fish Oil?
Fish oil can be found at health food stores and some grocery stores.
