An Overview of Fish Oil Benefits and Tips on Finding the Best Brand
Millions of people take fish oil supplements, but some are still questioning if omega-3 fish oil benefits the human body. Some are concerned that fish oil might just be a fad but many studies have shown that it can support a healthy body in many ways:
- Make your heart stronger - Fish oil prevents heart diseases and provides relief to people with heart problems by increasing the level of “good” HDL cholesterol, lowering triglyceride levels, and reducing fatal arrhythmias.
- Improve your brain functions - Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for regular brain activities, allowing people to think better, be more attentive, concentrate, memorize, and improve learning behavior. They work for babies up to the elderly.
- Get fairer and younger skin - Fish oil hydrates skin, which reduces inflammation and slows down the signs of aging. Some researchers said that it can treat and manage skin disorders like psoriasis and dermatitis.
Ready to buy omega-3 fish oil? Here are some tips to ensure that you’re getting the best quality:
Look for flavored fish oil
Many people have had negative experiences with fish oil due to its fishy taste and smell. However, Lysi removes all fishy smells and odors from our oil during our 5-step refining process. We then naturally flavor the cod liver oil and omega-3 fish oil with lemon and lemon-mint flavors so your fish oil tastes like fruit, not fish!
Find certified and trusted brands
As a buyer, you should be careful in choosing a brand of fish oil to buy because there are sellers online whose products might not have transparent labels or ingredients. For your health and safety, buy only from brands that have fish oil certifications and are approved by Marine Stewardship Council, Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3 (GOED), and Iceland Responsible Fisheries (IRF).
