health whether it is for the heart or brain research showed that fish oil can

other sicknesses the market is full of fish oil products but how do we make
sure that what we get are actually the ones that can benefit our health not all
fish contains omega-3 oil or the essential fatty acids fishes that have
the highest number of fatty acids are salmon herring mackerel sardines and
anchovies there are things that you would have to consider when buying fish
oil actually health professionals would say that eating too much fish that
contains fish oil in omega-3 can cause mercury contamination this can happen if
you do not exactly know where the fish are cut if the fish is cut in polluted
waters we can ingest mercury and other heavy metals to avoid toxins entering
out body we have to make sure that the fish oil that we are taking is
molecularly distilled in pharmaceutical grade supplements these kinds of fish
oil are removed of all toxins you would have to check at the label to make sure
that they come from clean waters and properly refined when checking the label
of a particular fish oil supplement you check their websites and look for the
certificate of analysis this Khoa is an analysis performed by an independent
laboratory to identify the freshness of the product
aside from checking the source of the fish and the freshness of the fish oil
you would also need to know what kind of fish the oil is from studies showed that
fish oil with docosahexaenoic acid or DHA and eicosapentaenoic acid or EPA
have the most health and benefits studies showed that the brain uses or
needs more DHA to function better aside from being free of heavy metals it
should always contain at least 60% of epa and DHA
you would also have to consider or be cautious with vitamins like vitamin A
and E which can be very harmful in large doses how would you know that you are
buying the safe fish oil supplement only buy from companies that use fresh and
high qualify fish and inform the public where they get their fish you can check
their websites or labels to be informed properly fish oil supplements can be
either liquid or tablet liquid fish oil costs more than oil capsules but when
compared with capsules based on the cost per gram it is actually less expensive
capsules are tamper-proof and keep the oil from getting bad most people find
fish oil to be expensive or overpriced some experts would say that there are
two ways to compare prices you can compare the total amount of DHA in the
supplement and the cost for each gram of DHA you would feel that you have low
quality fish oil if you suffer from any ache or pain so we would have to be
cautious when buying low cost fish oil they may not be the same as a high
quality fish oil you would have to be cautious when buying cheap fish oil so
when buying fish oil or any kind of product read the label or the product
information first getting informed will relieve you of any kind of health risk
in the future reading the label are getting to know the products would not
be more than a couple of minutes anyway so spare the time if you’ve liked the
