Should You Be Taking Fish Oil?
Published: 2/10/2014

We all need essential fatty acids for optimum health, but most Americans are eating too many omega-6 fatty acids (mainly through vegetable oils), and not enough omega-3 fatty acids (found in oily fish, walnuts and freshly ground flaxseed). This imbalance can lead to an increased risk of heart disease, inflammatory conditions, cancer and other health concerns. While eating several servings of oily fish per week (I like wild Alaskan salmon and sardines) is a start, you may want to take fish oil supplements, especially if you're a vegetarian or don't enjoy fish. Available in liquid or capsule forms, both are effective at helping to reduce elevated blood pressure, are beneficial to the nervous system, can help treat mild to moderate depression, and more. Look for capsules or oil that are certified free of contaminants, and begin with small daily doses, building up to the recommended amount.
