What does Fish Oil supplement means?
Fish Oil is the richest source of Omega-3 fatty acids like Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Omega-3 fatty acids are good fats that help to maintain triglyceride levels in healthy heart. These fatty acids are essential and are not made by the body, therefore, they must be consumed in regular diet. Omega-3 fatty acids are found in oils obtained from certain types of fish, flaxseed, and some other plant sources.

How Fish Oil supplement works?
Fish Oil may reduce the synthesis of triglycerides in the liver because EPA and DHA are poor substrates for the enzymes responsible for triglyceride synthesis. EPA and DHA also inhibit esterification of other fatty acids. EPA & DHA are precursors of certain eicosanoids that are known to reduce inflammation in the body and have other health benefits.
