These fats have been proven to be very beneficial for us and should be a part of every one’s diet. The problem is – the market is flooded with all kinds of Omega 3 capsules. How do you compare them and choose one which is actually effective? Here’s a quick checklist to solve this problem for you: – Check the source of the oil There is no doubt that the best source of Omega 3 fats is fish oil. But not all kinds of fish contain enough or any Omega 3. Salmon, Mackerel and Trout are a few that do. However, it’s a lesser known fish called Hoki from New Zealand that actually has the best proportion of DHA and EPA Omega 3 fats, making it an ideal candidate for sourcing oil. – Is the oil fresh? Many fish oils leave a sour aftertaste in the mouth. This is because the oil is not fresh and has become rancid. If the breeding ground of the fish is near the processing facility of the oil, then this problem doesn’t happen. The fish doesn’t get a chance to spoil and are quickly processed to extract fresh oil.

How Fish Oil Can Help Prevent Prevent Loss of Vision in Old Age

A regular diet that includes food rich in omega-3 can help prevent one of the most common causes of vision loss, new research suggests. According to a report by The Annals of Ophthalmology, omega-3 fish oil may cut the risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) by as much as a third. AMD is a progressive and irreversible condition that affects older adults. It is caused by thinning and bleeding around the macula – the central portion of the retina. This results in a loss of sight in the center of the field of vision. People with AMD, who are mostly over the age of 60, lose the ability to see fine detail. Severely affected AMD patients are often classified as legally blind although they still have some peripheral vision left. Similar studies conducted by the University of Melbourne confirmed that eating fish twice a week was linked to a reduced risk of AMD. Researchers from Harvard Medical School and the National Eye Institute also reported that nutritional supplements of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, particularly docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), could also prevent the eye disease. DHA, the omega-3 present in every cell membrane of the human body, is also highly concentrated in the brain, retina, and heart. It is vital to good health. Studies have already linked omega-3 fatty acids with a variety of health benefits, the...

Although always considered as essential to proper growth and good health, the full scope of fish oil benefits did not become apparent until the study of omega-3 fatty acids began in earnest in the 1970’s. studies were then being conducted to figure out how Greenland Eskimos could eat a diet so incredibly high in fat, without showing any signs at all of cardiovascular disease.
