Fish oil supplements are safe for most people to use, but you should avoid them if you are taking medications such as coumadin, which thin the blood. Because the omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil impair the formation of blood clots, taking them with blood thinners can increase your risk of developing abnormal bleeding or bruising. Fish oil can also cause bloating, gas and diarrhea, but these side effects are not considered to be serious.

WHAT IS FISH OILS? THE WAYS TO OBTAIN IT HOW DOES IT WORK? WHY IS IT IMPORTANT IN HUMAN DIETS? BENEFITS OF FISH OILS DEFICIENCY OF FISH OILS EXCESSIVE INTAKE OF FISH OILS DIETARY RECOMMENDATION CONCLUSION
A form of fatty acid that is derived from the tissues of oily fish. Contains the omega-3 fatty acids (n-3), including eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) EPA and DHA are a very long derivatives of n- 3 which is one of polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA)
Example : mackerel, tuna, salmon, sturgeon, mullet, bluefish, anchovy, sardines, herring, trout, and menhaden. They provide about 1 gram of omega-3 fatty acids in about 3.5 ounces of fish.
Fish oils are obtained fromi. lean fish, e.g. cod, in which reserve oils are stored as triacylglycerols in the liversii. fatty fish, e.g. mackerel, in which the oils are stored in the flesh. Eating broiled or baked fish - reduce the risk of heart disease Eating fried fish or fish sandwiches - cancels out the benefits of fish oil and increase heart disease risk
Made from fish skins and livers. Often contain small amounts of vitamin E to prevent spoilage. They might also be combined with calcium, iron, or vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, C, or D. Usually made from mackerel, herring, tuna, halibut, salmon, cod liver, whale blubber, or seal blubber.
Omega-3 fatty acids reduce pain and swelling. This may explain why fish oil is likely effective for psoriasis and dry eyes. These fatty acids also prevent the blood from clotting easily. This might make fish oil helpful for some heart conditions.
Specific fatty acids found in fish oils are prevalent in specialised organs (such as the brain, eyes). Mammals have a very limited ability to synthesise these fatty acids, so we need to obtain them from our diet The fatty acids found in fish oils are NOT the same as those in vegetable oils
Heart – Helps reduce the risk of arrhythmias and sudden death by a heart attack. Brain – Fatty acids in fish oil help to build the membranes of cells in the brain. DHA improves concentration and memory. Cholesterol and Triglycerides – Lowers triglycerides to help balance cholesterol. Joints and Arthritis - Better joint function from reduced inflammation and a reduction in pain.
Skin and Beauty – Improves the health and appearance of your skin, helps keep your nails strong, and makes your hair healthy and shiny. Immune system and Cancer – Proven to be beneficial for the body’s immune function, lowering risk of breast and prostate cancer. Vision – Improves focus, colour, perception, and clarity of vision. Digestive System – Improves intestinal health and reduces inflammation.
Allergies – Omega-3 fatty acid intake by mothers during pregnancy may protect babies against the development of allergies. It may also help people with existing allergies. Diabetes – Fish oil enhances insulin secretion from beta cells in the pancreas, regulating blood sugar levels. DHA plays a protective role in diabetic neuropathy in all forms of diabetes.
Building of the cell membranes in the brain and controlling of blood clotting by preventing platelets from clumping together may become inhibited. Cause poor memory, mood swings and depression. Symptoms - fatigue, poor circulation, heart problems, and it contributes to skin conditions such as dandruff and eczema, plain old dry skin.
Thin our blood, inhibiting the blood coagulation process our body needs to stop bleeding after an injury. Excessively thin blood increases risk of internal bleeding - disrupt the normal flow of oxygen throughout your body, or might even lead to bleeding in our brain. Large amounts fish oil capsules - affect our hair - large amount of vitamin A - toxicity - damage skin and scalp, leading to flaking and tissue breakdown that can impede proper hair growth.
Eating fish (particularly fatty fish) at least two times a week. (American Heart Association ) People who already have cardiovascular disease: higher amounts are recommended Pregnant/breastfeeding women/ development during early infancy and childhood: at least 8 and up to 12 ounces (2 – 3 servings) of a variety of seafood per week
