Before we answer the question "What is the daily dose of cod liver oil?" We need to know how it works and what exactly it contains.
FISH OIL OMEGA 3 is suitable for the prophylaxis and prevention of:
- cardiovascular disease
- cerebrovascular diseases
- autoimmune disorders
- chronic fatigue
- vision loss
Omega-3 fatty acids are essential fatty acids, which means that they can not be synthesized by the human body, but are but are vital for normal metabolism.
Fish oil is derived from the fat of a number of fish, including anchovy, tuna, herring, sardines, trout, salmon, and mackerel.
As small fish, anchovy have far fewer toxins, particularly due to their short life span, and therefore you are protected by the adoption of a large amount of toxins compared to the same product but from large fish! The Natural Resources Defense Council categorizes anchovies as fish with the least mercury that are safe to consume.
Wild anchovies - natural feeding and processing of food without artificial foods and additives in farmed fish.
EPA and DHA are two of the main ingredients of interest to health and food experts. They are two types of polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acids.
EPA is an abbreviation for Eicosapantaenoic acid, known as the precursor of prostaglandin-3, thromboxane-2, leukotriene-5. Fish does not produce EPA, but accumulates it from the algae it feed on.
DHA is an abbreviation for docosahexaenoic acid. This fatty acid is the main component of the human retina and the cerebral cortex.
Omega-3 fatty acids play an important role in the production of potent hormone-like substances called prostaglandins. They help to regulate many important physiological functions, including blood pressure, blood clotting, inflammatory and allergic reactions, the function of the kidneys and the gastrointestinal tract, as well as the production of other hormones.
Over the recent decades numerous studies have examined the positive impact of the intake of fish oil.
These are some of the benefits:
- Improved cerebral circulation
- Improved mental abilities
- Protection and prevention of cardiovascular system
- Maintain healthy levels of cholesterol and triglycerides
- Prerequisite for healthy weight loss
- Support for optimal functioning of the brain and retina
- Protection from vision loss – an adequate intake of DHA protects from aging-related vision reduction
- Easing of inflammations, especially at the joints, arthritic pain
- Benefits to patients suffering from multiple sclerosis
