The all-star supplement in my opinion, and a supplement I feel as though everyone should be adding to their diet. Fish oil is a staple for many people, whether they are in fitness or not. Fish oil has an insane amount of benefits. Some off the top of my head: Lowers blood pressure, reduces inflammation, reduces total triglycerides, increase HDL cholesterol (the good kind), reduces cognitive decline as we age, helps our brains function properly, and can help increase fat tissue oxidation. Obviously that’s a lot of benefits from one supplement, and many also report a decrease in joint pain when supplementing with fish oil. Two of my favorite reasons for taking a fish oil supplement is it helps me keep my percentage of body fat where I want it and keeps dry skin away.
I have always recommended eating wild caught fish twice a week to get those healthy fats in, but that is not always possible for most people, so taking a high quality fish oil supplement daily is a great option.
The dosage should be a minimum of 250mg daily, but the inflammation reducing effects is seen at 6g daily. I take 6g daily, sometimes doing up to 9g daily.
