Fish oil supplements are an excellent way to add essential fatty acids, specifically the omega-3s EPA and DHA, to your daily diet. Omega-3s target a long list of health concerns. In fact, only vitamins C and E address a greater number of health conditions than omega-3 fatty acids. Typically made from salmon oil, cod liver oil or other cold water fatty fish, fish oil supplements derive their health benefits from the aforementioned eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid (EPA and DHA). Omega-3s enjoy the luxury of having a lot of scientific research to back up their importance for human health and wellness. Research shows that EPA and DHA alone can support everything from heart health to joint health, cholesterol health and even infant brain development. Swanson Health Products offers a wide range of fish oil supplements in varying potencies for all the members of your family.
