What exactly is the nutrional benefit of Fish Oil?

Question:

What exactly is the nutrional benefit of Fish Oil? I know that it is labelled a ‘good fat.’ But how does it help in weight training programs. Thanks ahead for the advice.

Thanks,

Lee

Answer:

Omega 3′s are a polyunsatured fat that can be found in such sources like fish and nuts. You will find this Omega-3 in Salmon, coconuts, peanut butter and other fish. There are many health benefits to this particualr supplement. Here’s just a few:

  • Increases growth hormone levels (promotes muscle growth)
  • Reduced blood clotting
  • Heart protection
  • Dilates blood vessels
  • Reduced blood pressure
  • Suppresses inflammation
  • Relieves depression

One benefit that isn’t listed here is that taking in an essential fatty acid can actually increase your metabolism. That’s right. Taking a fat pill can actually help you to lose weight.

    Studies involving males and females of all ages with a diagnosis of bipolar disorder qualified for inclusion. Studies using any type or dose of omega-3 fatty acid treatment as monotherapy or in addition to standard pharmacotherapy were eligible.Studies of patients taking medication for major (or unipolar) depression have found that 1 to 2 grams a day of an omega-3 supplement led to a measurable reduction in symptoms. The benefits to patients with bipolar depression are less clear, however.
