Fish Oil – Tiffany’s Favourite Supplements #2

We are often asked, “what supplements should we be taking”? This is a difficult question to answer as our bodies are unique and so many factors come in to play. We always recommend that you consult your natural health practitioner when it comes to making personal choices on supplements.

We thought it may be of interest to you, to hear from our in-house Holistic Nutritionist Tiffany Sale on what her favourite supplements are and why. This is the second of a 4-part series on Tiffany’s favourite supplements. This blog features “Fish Oil”.

Fish oil is one of the most consumed dietary supplements. It’s rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are very important for your health. If you don’t eat a lot of oily fish, taking a fish oil supplement could help you get enough omega-3 fatty acids.

Here are some of the evidence-based benefits of supplementing with fish oil.

  1. Fish oil supplements may reduce some of the risks associated with heart disease.
  2. Fish oil supplements may help reduce waist circumference, as well as aid weight loss when combined with diet or exercise.
  3. Fish oil has strong anti-inflammatory effects and can help reduce symptoms of inflammatory diseases, especially rheumatoid arthritis.
  4. Liver disease is common in obese individuals. Fish oil supplements may help reduce fat in your
    liver and symptoms of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
  5. Behavioral disorders in children can interfere with learning and development. Fish oil supplements have been shown to help reduce hyperactivity, inattention, and other negative behaviours.
