In the world of health and dietary supplement,s it can be difficult to tell which supplements live up to their lofty promises and are beneficial to a healthy lifestyle. The supplement industry is rather vast and can be difficult to navigate, so we're here to help.
If you only add one supplement to your diet, we recommend adding fish oil. This wonderful supplement truly aids a healthy diet and lifestyle.
Fish oils are made up of two fatty acids, EPA and DHA, which pack a powerful punch. This powerhouse of a supplement provides many benefits. With regard to cardiovascular disease, fish oil improves the ability of the arteries to dilate and become more elastic. This is essential for reducing stress on your heart, and blood pressure. Fish oil can also decrease triglycerides (the fatty acids that circulate in our blood) and helps to promote our "good" HDL cholesterol while decreasing our LDL, or "bad" cholesterol.
In addition, fish oil can reduce and prevent inflammation in the body. This helps our blood flow more smoothly, and can help reduce joint inflammation as well. It has also been shown to improve eye and skin health, and improve neurological function.
