5 Wonderful Benefits of Omega-3

Published by Wonder Laboratories on Mar 15th 2016

Benefits of Fish Oil When it comes to supplements, Omega-3 often is considered among those with an array of benefits that far exceed its weight as a small softgel. This essential fatty acid, which is ideally consumed through Omega-3 rich foods like fatty fish (think salmon, mackerel, sardines, albacore tuna and herring), has been recommended by the American Heart Association as a way to reduce the risk of heart disease.

Here are 5 other benefits of Omega-3:

  1. In addition to reducing the risk of heart disease by lowering cholesterol and blood pressure, research shows that it can also lower the risk of other diseases like cancer and arthritis.
  2. Omega-3 fatty acids can improve brain function, therefore supporting enhanced memory and performance.
  3. According to the Arthritis Foundation, it has been shown to alleviate the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis by reducing inflammation in the joints.
  4. Mayo Clinic studies show that Omega-3 fatty acids can ease symptoms of depression.
  5. Regularly taking Omega-3 supplements, as MDV revealed, reduced the levels of homocysteine in patients with diabetes.

Ensure that you're getting adequate levels of Omega-3 fatty acids. As the American Heart Association recommends, you should be consuming, at least, two servings of fatty fish each week. Also, some people regularly take Omega-3 supplements as part of their daily routine. WonderLabs features a variety of Omega-3 supplements, including Omega-3 softgels of Marine Lipid Concentrate (Fish Oil). This supplement is gluten-free. Directions: Take two softgels three times a day as a convenient source of Omega-3 fatty acids.
