Acquire Fish Oil Pill | 1st Phorm

3 min read

Fish oil is one of the most popular supplements on the market. But why are so many people using it?

Today we’ll take a look at that very question in this article.

What Are Fish Oil Pills?

Fish oil can be taken for its supplemental health benefits in one of two ways. It can be consumed by eating fish, or it can be taken in the form of a gel capsule or liquid. For people who are hoping to get the benefits of fish, but don’t eat a lot of fish, a fish oil supplement is the perfect compromise.

Most fish oil supplements come in gel capsules, with the serving size of one or two capsules. You just have to read the label to make sure you know the proper serving size.

What Are Fish Oil Pills Used For?

Fish oils are made of a variety of omega-3 fatty acids.

What Are Omega-3 Fatty Acids?

Without getting into too much detail regarding the science of omega-3 fatty acids, I can say that there are 7 primary benefits to fish oil.

The benefits of fish oil include:

  • Improve heart health
  • Can help with cognitive function
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Support healthy bones and joints
  • Can improve sleep quality
  • Beneficial for infant and child development
  • Supports healthy hair, skin, and nails

The heart health benefits are one of the more common reasons why people take fish oil supplements. Fish oil can help lower blood pressure, reduce triglycerides, slow down plaque development in the arteries, reduce abnormal heart rhythm, and lessen the chance of cardiac arrest as well as heart attacks.

All of these benefits have a cumulative effect on your cardiovascular system.  It is important to take fish oil every day to get the most benefit.

That being said, a fish oil pill does not replace a medication. If you want to know where you can benefit from fish oil, be sure to talk to your doctor.

Do Fish Oil Pills Come With Any Side Effects?

The side effects of taking fish oil pills regularly are all pretty minor.  Common side effects include:

  • A fishy aftertaste
  • Bad breath
  • Indigestion
  • Nausea
  • Loose stools
  • Rash

The most common side effect is definitely the fishy aftertaste, but that can be easily taken care of if you have a correctly formulated fish oil supplement, or simply take your fish oil with a meal.

Either way, it’s an easy fix. Most people don’t even notice a fishy aftertaste, much less anything else listed.

Of course, if you start noticing unusual side effects after you begin regularly taking fish oil pills, you should stop taking them immediately and contact your doctor. It might be that you have a condition that makes you react that way.

How Much Fish Oil Should I Take?

I’ve already covered how most servings will be one or two capsules, but what does that mean as far as actual quantity? Obviously not all fish oil pills contain the same amount of fish oil, right?

Well, that’s where things get tricky. There are two primary types of fish oil.  First, there’s EPA, and then there’s DHA. You’ll want somewhere around 2,500 mg of fish oil in total in a single serving, with a 3:2 ratio of EPA and DHA.

Some special cases and specific conditions may require more than that, but most people don’t.
