We all know that fish oil contains omega 3’s and that it’s good for healthy joints and healthy skin but here are 5 benefits of fish oil you probably didn’t know about.
1. Protect yourself from air pollution

Who knew that one of the many benefits of fish oil includes protecting your heart from air pollution? According to a 2012 American study researchers found that those who took the fish oil didn’t have the same negative effects on their heart as those who only took the placebo.  So taking fish oil is a must especially if you live in the city.

知道吗?鱼油可以保护您的心脏,隔离空气污染。据2012年美国一项研究发现, 使用安慰剂人群的心脏健康受损速度比服用鱼油人群的心脏健康更快。所以,如果您是居住在城市,您更需要补充鱼油。

2.Improve bone health

When it comes to maintaining bone density, calcium, vitamin D and magnesium shouldn’t be your only supplements. The omega-3 fatty acid DHA is essential for optimal bone health and maintaining mineral bone density. 

3. Improve fat burning

A study on obesity studied the effects of diet and exercise on the body, they found fish oil supplements and exercise made for a powerful fat-loss combination. Body fat stores, particularly abdominal fat, were significantly reduced in the fish-oil-plus-exercise group, but not in those who used fish oil or exercise alone.

4.Boost brain power and memory

A diet lacking in omega 3’s may cause your brain to age faster and lose some of its memory and thinking abilities.  Researchers have found link between people taking fish oil as having better brain function, memory and structure than non-users of fish oil.   People who took fish oil were associated with having a less brain shrinkage as they aged.


5.Preserve lean muscle

Supplementing your diet with fish oil may prevent the muscle loss that commonly occurs in cancer patients who undergo chemotherapy. Patients who did not take fish oil lost an average of 2.3 kg whereas patients receiving fish oil maintained their weight. What’s even more interesting is that 69 percent of patients in the fish oil group gained or maintained muscle mass.  Muscle is metabolically active and burns calories even while you sleep. Adding in fish oil will help preserve muscle, even while dieting.
