By Edited May 4, 2016 0 1

Oil from fish is filled with the Omega 3 fatty acids you need in order to improve your health in various ways. The good thing about fish oil is that you can buy the supplements in most drugstores and supermarkets. As you get older, it will become even more important to get a daily intake of these oils. I’m in my thirties and I realize that my body won’t operate the way it does ten years from now so I’ll need to get as much fish oil as possible to keep me healthy.


Fish Oil Benefits For Women

 

Women face several health risks depending on their age, ethnic background and lifestyle habits. One of the best ways women can reduce some of these risks is by taking fish oil supplements and eating fatty fish with Omega 3 fatty acids. For example, breast cancer is a common illness among women and the Omega 3 fatty acids in fish oil supplements can reduce their chances of getting this cancer.  Other conditions where fish oil helps women include reduction of cervical cancer, reduction of bad cramps during menstrual cycles and depression brought on by menopause.

Pregnant women in particular benefit from fish oil supplements in various ways.  Such oil helps the woman deliver a healthy baby and it helps the baby develop a string brain. Because it’s not wise for pregnant women to eat fatty fish due to the mercury traces in it, doctors recommend that they take fish oil supplements. Pregnant women should meet with their doctors before taking the fish oil supplements so they can get an idea of what dosage they should take.

Medical studies have also shown that the Omega 3 fatty acids in these  oil supplements are helpful in increasing fertility rates because the fatty acids bring blood flow to the uterus and increase pregnancy chances. Women who tried traditional fertility treatments may benefit such oil.

Osteoporosis is a bone-related disease that affects a lot of  women and fish oil can reduce the risks of getting this illness by improving bone density. Women don’t get enough calcium in their diet or who are allergic to dairy products would benefit from fish oil as a way to prevent osteoporosis.

Cardiovascular disease is becoming one of the most deadly diseases of women and if you want to reduce your risk of this disease as a woman, you should take these oil supplements. This may be more effective than aspirins or other medications. Before you take the fish oil supplements for cardiovascular disease, talk with your doctor so you’ll know how much to take.

The best place to  buy these  oils is at natural health food stores because some of the brands have pure fish oil supplements without the toxins. You can go to the drugstores or supermarkets for fish oil supplements but they may not be of the best quality. Online retailers sell high quality fish oil supplements but you want to be sure you’re ordering from a credible website.

Fish Oil Benefits For Men

 

Fish oil is a popular and beneficial supplement for women, but there are other fish oil benefits for men. Heart disease is a major killer of men and while proper nutrition and exercise are essential to preventing and treating this disease, men can use fish oil for heart disease because the Omega 3 fatty acids strengthen the cardiovascular system. In a study by Harvard University in 1997, researchers conducted a study of 47,000 men’s eating habits and they found that men who eat fatty fish at least three times a week reduced prostate cancer chances. In 2005 a study from the U.S. Department of Agriculture reported that fish oil supplements help men prevent and treat Alzheimer’s and dementia.

There are other  benefits of these oils  for men.  Men want their skin to be healthy and attractive just like women and if you’re a man you should take fish oil supplements or eat fatty fish because these improve your skin. Fish oil retains the collagen in your skin and it also moisturizes your skin on the inside. It also helps treat scars on your skin due to sunburn and it can prevent skin cancer.

Men who are interested in starting a family should consider fish oil’s benefits because medical research shows that fish oil supplements can increase sperm count and mobility, leading to increased chances of fertility. This is good news for men who tried various fertility treatments and failed. Talk with your fertility doctor about the possibility of using fish oil supplements for fertility purposes and read books on this topic.

Depression and other mental health issues men face can be treated with a daily dose of fish oil. The fish oil benefits for these conditions outweigh the benefits of pharmaceutical drugs because fish oil supplements don’t have the constant negative side effects as the pharmaceutical drugs. The Omega 3 fatty acids in fish oil increase serotonin in your brain. Serotonin is the hormone in your brain that provides a joyful feeling in the body.

If you’re struggling with arthritis or other joint problems as a man, consider fish oil benefits because the fish oil has anti-inflammatory properties, which are important to treating this condition. Men who experience bad reactions to pain killers should use fish oil.

Such oil has long been considered brain food for men and the fish oil can increase your memory according to numerous medical researchers. As men get older their memory isn’t as it was when they were younger so fish oil will keep their memory sharp.

All men want their vision to be sharp and you can take these supplements to treat poor vision and prevent eye illnesses such as glaucoma and cataracts. Fish oil is a good supplement to a vitamin-enriched diet and glasses. In conclusion, men need  these oils in order to improve their overall health and within weeks of taking it, they’ll slowly see changes in their bodies.
