It’s been quite awhile since I last blogged. The last three weeks of my life had been a blur. Been so busy at work and I mean really busy. One of my superiors went on a 2 week vacation out of the country and left me to man the port while she was away. I was left with my far stricter boss and a new PR account we had to bid for. It’s that account that we still don’t know the results of that kept me so busy, I hardly had time for anything else. Interestingly enough, I learned something new. You see, I’ve recently made a pact with myself to start watching out for my health. Been drinking Myra Vitamin E because of its anti-oxidant benefit. I’m after the glowing, healthy skin.  Then we had this bid and it was for a fish oil supplement. Until that time, I’ve never heard of such supplements. I was tasked to research about the many health benefits of fish oil. and what I found was really amazing.

What is Fish Oil? 

First, let’s talk about what fish oil! Fish oil is obtained from the fatty tissues of oily fish. It contains Omega 3 fatty acids docosahexaenoic (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic (EPA) which brings so many health benefits!

Benefits of Fish Oil

The most popular benefit known about taking fish oil supplement is about heart health! It’s the most widely talked about benefit which you probably have heard or seen thanks to the active advertising campaigns of Century Tuna and San Marino Sardines.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death worldwide. According to studies, people who eat a lot of fish have a much lower rate of getting heart disease. Eating fish or drinking fish oil supplement can help reduce multiple risk factors for heart disease such as cholesterol and blood pressure. 

But yes, fish oil has more to offer! 

Fish oil also has the following other health benefits:

  • Good for the hair and skin – Omega 3 fatty acids can help regulate skin’s oil production, improve balanced hydration and minimize signs of aging.  There are also studies that show that it can aid in hair growth as it opens hair follicles and since it is a healthy fat, it can prevent dry and flaky scalp.  
  • It has brain health benefits – Did you guys know that our brain is 60% fat and a lot of these fat is Omega 3 fatty acids? Research has shown that fish oil can help in preventing mental diseases such as psychotic disorders. 
  • Helps reduce inflammation – it can help treat chronic inflammations  such as diabetes. It can also help reduce joint pain so people suffering from arthritis can benefit greatly from this supplement.

So you know, I’m gonna buy fish oil supplements once I consume my bottle of Myra E.
