Fish Oil

Traditionally used to reduce triglyceride and cholesterol levels.

Overview

Omega-3 acids are polyunsaturated fatty acids which are derived from vegetable oils sources – shorter chain – and from marine sources – long-chain. These acids are mainly extracted from deep-sea and cold-water fish, such as salmon, tuna, mackerel, sardine, etc. The most important acids are the eicosapentaenoic and docosahexaenoic acids; these are called essential acids because they cannot be synthesized by our bodies. As said acids are necessary for our development and protection, it is essential to incorporate them in our diet or by way of supplements.

 

Therapeutic indications and uses
