What Is Omega-3 Fish Oil?

Fish oil supplements are a high source of omega-3 Fatty acids taken for their array of benefits. In order to receive ample amounts of omega-3s through diet alone, one would need to consume high amounts of fatty fish daily. These types of fish include Mackerel, Trout, Herring, Bluefin Tuna, and Salmon. Since most individuals do not maintain a consistent diet containing these fish, supplementation is highly recommended. This method is also a much cheaper alternative.

Omega-3s Defined

The two omega-3 fatty acids consist of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). Though these two fatty acids are commonly taken together through fish oil supplementation, they each provide different benefits.

Fish Oil Benefits

These capsules provide endless benefits for cognition, mood, and overall health. This is one of most versatile supplements to add to any regimen.*

Omega-3s and Cognition

Omega-3 fatty acids have a proven ability to benefit working memory and cognition. [1] It is able to do so by supplementing word recall, reaction times, spatial memory, and more. [2] Though DHA is most commonly used as the cognitive boosting omega-3, one study shows adding EPA to the equation yielded greater results.* [2]

Omega-3 Capsules for Athletes

Omega-3s promotes the use of dietary fat as fuel. This results in a higher metabolic energy and leaner body composition. [3] Fish oil supplements can benefit strength and endurance as well.* [4,5]

Additional Benefits of Omega 3 Fish Oil

Though fish oil’s most common benefits are those associated with cognition, there are many other benefits that promote overall health that are not as widely discussed.*

Omega 3 Benefits with Synergistic Supplements

This supplement appears to be a jack of all trades alone; however, there are many supplements to take with fish oil capsules to amplify its benefits.

DHA + Uridine

Uridine assists in the production of CDP-choline, which is highly synergistic with DHA. [6] An increase in choline along with DHA provides limitless cognitive benefits. This boost in cognition occurs because choline relies on fatty acids to form membrane components.* [7] This highly synergistic combination sparked the creation of the uridine stack.

Omega 3 + Astaxanthin

Astaxanthin is a pigment most commonly found in Krill that is a powerful cellular health supplement. Individuals supplement with astaxanthin beadlets because fish oil protects astaxanthin from environmental conditions while boosting its effects. [8]

Curcumin and Fish Oil Capsules

Curcumin and fish oil taken together stimulate synaptic function which is the communication of neurons. Supplemented synaptic function leads to a boost in normal brain functions. [9] A combination of curcumin capsules with piperine and fish oil capsules will promotes joint health while supplementing the bioavailability of curcumin.*

Omega 3 Fish Oil Capsules Dosage

The recommended dosage is two capsules per day. Each capsule contains 1000mg of fish oil which includes 160mg of EPA and 105mg of DHA.
