Fish oil is a substance rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids such as omega-3, as well as sterols such as squalene that have numerous health benefits. The oil has powerful antioxidant and cardio-protective properties and has been used for centuries, but it was forgotten in the last few centuries. However, it is now regaining its popularity due to the increased awareness about healthy lifestyle with plenty of physical activity and adequate nutrition
Fish oil is available in liquid or capsule form. It is much cheaper in liquid state, but the taste and smell is pretty strong, which is why people buy capsules. Besides the oil, the capsules also contain glycerides whose main components are oleic acid, palmitic acid, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. All other elements are present in smaller amounts. When they come in contact with oxygen, omega-3 fatty acids corrode quickly, but the gelatin capsules prevent oxidation and increase the longevity of the product.
