Routine Eat Fish, No Need Longer Consumption of Fish Oil Supplements

Taking fish oil supplements can be an easy way to reap the health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids. But, if you regularly consume fish 3-4 times a week, fish oil supplements will not provide extra benefit.

"I'm not quite sure that fish oil supplements with high price worthy to be bought by healthy people, especially people who regularly eat fish 3-4 times a week," said Roshini Rajapaksa, MD, assistant professor of medicine at NYU School of Medicine

Fish oil supplements has become one of the most popular health supplements in the world. It was linked to the fact that our body can not produce omega-3 itself.

In addition, omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to offer many health benefits, which lowers blood pressure, and help alleviate osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

Some research also suggests that omega-3 can help protect against some cancers. So, so many people are finally assume that taking supplements is necessary to get adequate amounts.

However, Rajapaksa said, in fact not yet enough evidence to know for sure whether the supplement could work in so far as it is for our health.

Rajapaksa rate, we can get the best omega-3 intake through daily diet, by eating fatty fish, like salmon and tuna, two to four times a week. That alone is sufficient without the need for additional supplements.

Unless patients with heart disease, on the other hand, will greatly benefit from fish oil supplements, it's just that the amount should be in accordance with the recommendation of a doctor.

New research shows that ingesting high doses of omega-3 fish oil supplements every day after a heart attack can indeed help heal the heart. However, taking fish oil doses of 3 grams or more per day may increase the risk of bleeding.

"There's a good idea to consult with a physician before taking supplements, especially if you are taking blood thinning medication. Although OTC, supplements of any kind is not well taken carelessly, "said Rajapaksa.
