Why Take Fish Oil Capsules?

Fats can be beneficial. Without them you’d be dead. The body can manufacture most fats that you need. But the omega 3 and omega 6 has to come from your diet. Taking fish oil capsules is one of the best ways to get these fats.

According to recent studies, our hunter gatherer ancestors’ maintained a 1:1 ratio of omega 6 and omega 3. Today our intake is more like a 16:1 ratio. This imbalance can be hazardous to your health. When your body’s omega 6 and 3 are imbalanced inflammation can occur. Research shows that chronic inflammation can cause diseases such as diabetes, stroke, asthma, and many forms of cancer. Not to mention a general decrease in brain power and an increase in your chances of developing depression.

So now that you know all of this you might still be thinking "why take fish oil capsules?" Well it will become clearer to you as you read on...

Where do Omega 3s Come From?

Omega 3 is absorbed from leafy plants, grass or algae when eaten. Which is why we get tons of omega 3s from wild game, because they eat grass. On the other hand Omega 6s are found in seeds, grains and nuts.

When farming was invented 12,000 years ago everyone started eating grain. The balance went 5:1 for omega 6s to omega 3s. Scientist found through fossil records that people from this era began growing shorter, were prone to illness, and had a decrease in the overall brain size.

Despite the all of the negatives. People began feeding their livestock grains as well. The result is cattle are being raised on a high omega 6 diet. So when you eat the beef you are eating even more Omega 6! This isn't just limited to beef. Our chicken, pork and fish are corn fed as well.

We even cook with corn oil, soybean oil, and canola oil and so on. All oil's rich in omega 6. Think about this when you go to eat fast food, because they use these oils to cook your fries, nuggets, and patties.

Why Take Fish Oil Capsules Today?

So if you want to regain the balance you have two options. You can either decrease your Omega 6 intake. Or you can increase your omega 3s. Since there are so many omegas 6 in the American Food Industry it is only reasonable to try to even the balance by increasing your omega 3s. One way to increase your omega3 is by taking fish oil.

Fish oil is highly concentrated with Omega 3. It comes in the form of EPA and DHA. DHA (Docosahexaenbic acid) is the only Omega-3 that is abundant in the brain. Brain cells need this chemical to remain flexible enough to transmit signal. EPA (eicosopentaenoic acid) is crucial for brain function.

 

Why Take Fish Oil Capsules  and Which Fish Oil capsules to buy

When you pick a fish oil you want to watch out for ones that are packaged wrong. You see some companies take too long to put the oil in the gel capsules. And the oil spoils. Can you imagine the rotten fish burps? Another thing you have to watch out for is small traces of toxins getting into your fish oil. Some fisheries have been found to have pollutants like arsenic, mercury, dioxins and PCB. All of which can cause you serious harm. Selecting the right one is important.

You want to look for fish oil that is pharmaceutical grade and free from all heavy metals (toxins). One that has a 2:1 EPA balance. Aim for 1000 mg of EPA and 500 mg of DHA. In conclusion I hope I've clearly answered your question and you no longer question "why Take Fish Oil Capsules?"
