Fish oil has an abundance of polyunsaturated fatty acids like omega-3 and sterols like squalene. Fish oil is highly beneficial for the overall health and it has potent antioxidant properties. It’s also known to maintain the health of the cardiovascular system. Although it has been used a lot in the past, in the last couple of centuries, its use seems to have reduced.
However, in recent years, it began regaining its popularity due to the increasing awareness of people about the necessity of leading a healthy lifestyle comprised of a healthy diet, regular physical activity, and as less stress as possible. Fish oil can be found in capsule or liquid form. The latter is cheaper; however, the taste and smell are pretty strong so people usually opt for the capsules.
The capsules also contain glycerides whose main components are palmitic acid, oleic acid, and omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. When they come into contact with oxygen, the omega-3 fatty acids corrode quickly but the gelatin capsules prevent oxidation and make the product last longer.
The vitamins A and D in fish oil have the power to improve growth of cells in the mucous membranes and the cells in the skin. Therefore, this oil is excellent for the skin, nails, and hair. What’s more, vitamin D has the power to treat anxiety, leg cramps, and stress and it can also better the calcium absorption which is pivotal for health skin and bones.
