Fish Oils contain long-chain fatty acids, including docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). DHA and EPA are omega-3 fatty acids with important roles in numerous metabolic functions. They are found in foods like salmon and supplements such as ON Fish Oil Softgels. Our Fish Oil Softgels are mercury-free and enteric-coated, which means that you get all the benefits of fish oils without the fishy aftertaste that you might encounter without this special coating.
Why Fish Oil?
Fish oil is prepared from raw fish as it enters the processing plant and is cut into pieces and cooked by steam. The cooked mass of fish is then pressed or centrifuged to separate the fat-free dry solids and the liquid (oil & water).
The two key omega-3 fatty acids, DHA and EPA are present in abundance in fatty fish like salmon, mackerel, and sardines.
Fish oil is needed for supporting healthy heart function, joint flexibility, and cell production.
Fish oil is most likely safe for most people when taken by mouth in low doses (3 grams or less per day). However, taking high doses of fish oil may raise some safety concerns like keeping the blood from clotting and increasing the chances of bleeding. Some people who are allergic to seafood such as fish might also be allergic to fish oil supplements. Patients suffering from bipolar disorder, liver disease, depression, diabetes, familial adenomatous polyposis, high blood pressure, HIV/AIDS and other immunity depressing conditions, an implanted defibrillator are also at risk for side effects.
It is best when taken with meals.
A healthy individual needs around 0.5 grams of omega-3 in the form of EPA and DHA per 10 pounds of body weight for healthy individuals.
