By John Doe

Oil has many forms and most of them are often recognized to be bad for health, but it has one unique form which is good enough to over shadow the disadvantages of other forms. Fish oil is often associated with its benefits. Fish oil has many advantages and health benefits, some of them are as follows:

It reduces the risk of developing heart disease: According to WebMD, consumption of fish oil can help in controlling high blood pressure (Hypertension), high cholesterol level and also reduces high triglycerides level which in turn keep the heart healthy. It could have more benefits but that warrants further experiments and evidences.

Keep your brain healthy: It has also been found useful in controlling brain related disorders, by proving helpful to patients suffering from depression, Alzheimer’s disease and ADHD (attention deficit hypersensitivity disorder). It is also found to women in prevention of menstrual and pre-menstrual symptoms like cramps and breast tenderness.

Other than that, it is also helpful in improving the conditions of victims suffering from Osteoporosis, Psoriasis, dry eyes and glaucoma.

As excess of anything is bad for health, similarly fish oil has to be consumed in limited quantity, which is restricted to less than three gram for adults and should be avoided by children unless otherwise referred by a medical supervisor (according to U.S Food and administration report). This is to prevent possible side effects that can happen due to high mercury exposure present in fish.

Your immune system: Over consumption of fish oil may also lower the body’s ability to fight against various infections and can result in unbalancing the immune system. It may also increase bleeding by reducing the blood’s ability to clot when needed. Your heart: Consuming it in larger quantity may result in low blood pressure and can also increase “bad” LDL cholesterol level which could affect heart leading to cardio vascular disorder.

Fish oil and the fatty acid you most want which is omega 3 can of course be found in supplement form but also in fish such as mackarels and salmon. In supplement from you might want to take a capsule on a daily basis and if you would rather add fish to your diet than make sure to eat at least 2 to 3 meals of fish a week!

There have been reports that overconsumption of Omega 3 substitutes may increase the chances of bleeding in patients with liver diseases and could also increase the negative effect of diseases like bipolar disorder and depression. People with diabetes may also find difficulty in maintaining their glucose level if found consuming more than prescribed. Not only this, it also has a tendency of affecting heart by lowering the blood pressure then the average. So in order to reap the extended benefits of Omega3, one should consume it carefully and precisely.

As long as you limit your fish absorption to about 12 ounces per week or take a 100% pure fish oil supplement approved through your doctor, there are fantastic advantages of this supplement during pregnancy. The main pregnancy tip would be to make certain you do take benefit of the benefits of omega three for your growing baby.
