Fish Oil Benefits-Do You Make These 3 Mistakes When You Choose Fish Oil?

Updated on July 12, 2011

Fish Oil Benefits

I see many people expecting to reap fish oil benefits, but blow the whole concept with the omega-3 supplements they are using. Let's take a look at the 3 most common mistakes and what to do instead.

Mistake #1 - Look For Immediate Results: A lot of people think that if they take fish oil tonight they should be pain free, have lower blood pressure, lower triglycerides, and have a better memory in the morning (all results of regular use). This is such an easy mistake to make because we are accustom to taking an aspirin or pain killer, and expecting the pain of arthritis to go away.

What To Do Instead - Focus On Your Long Term Health: Omega-3 is a nutrient that every cell in your body must have to live a healthy life. Your body needs this every single day. It's not new, it's just a nutrient that we have been neglecting, and our health has suffered for it.

Pain killers, anti-depressants and statins are all very short term fixes, so why not think about how what you eat today will affect your health next week.

Mistake #2 - Think That fish oil Benefits Can Come From Just Any Supplement: Have you noticed that Omega-3 is showing up on more and more food advertisements? Supplements are becoming more and more popular as more and more people are becoming aware of the need.

Most of the supplements bought from local chains have very low omega-3 content and the oil comes from sources that aren't fresh, or pure from contaminates.

What To Do Instead - Purchase your omega-3 supplements from a company that will provide you with a Certificate of Analysis that will guaranty the freshness, purity, and omega-3 content of the very product you have purchased. If your supplement lacks any one of these, the health benefits won't be there.

Mistake #3 - Think That Fish Oil Benefits Aren't Real: A lot of people think that because they saw no immediate results, or were having to endure the side effects of chain store supplements, the benefits just aren't real, or they might think it's just too simple.

Some Things To Think About Instead: Almost all of the major health organizations around the world now advise us that we are not getting enough omega-3 in our diet to combat the amount of omega-6 that we are eating.

Doctors and researchers know that almost every health malady that our society suffers from today can be traced back to chronic inflammation, and the remedy for this is more omega-3 in our diet.

The solution to this is to supplement our diet with fish oil. It proves to be the richest, most productive, and most economical way to get the much needed omega-3 into our diet every day.

It may take weeks, or even months, but when you can trust your health and your money to a company who provides you with the absolute best products, showing you the analyses of the very product you buy, a producer that is always available to answer your questions, you can be assured of the fish oil benefits that your body deserves.
