Is Fish Oil Gross?

Is fish oil gross?

Depends on how you look at it. If you think about rancid, rotting fish, that’s left in a shipyard to decay and leaves behind an oily goo…

Then YES, that’s gross fish oil.

However, if you think about a freshly prepared filet of wild-caught salmon, prepared with a nice dill sauce cooked medium rare throughout… then no, it’s not gross.

In fact, you could go so far as to say it’s awesome!

Fish oil is one of the most important dietary sources of omega-3 fats you could ever hope to eat. And omega-3 fats are one of the most important kinds of fat you could ever hope to eat.

Because most Americans don’t get enough fish oil in their diet, many have turned to products like our Omega 3 400/300 mg EPA/DHA fish oil to help them increase their omega-3 intake.

Fish oil supplements have likely done more for human health in the past 10 years than just about any supplement out there.

And if you’re not eating fish everyday, you might want to start taking a fish oil supplement tomorrow.

Why Fish Oil Is One of the Most Important Supplements Of All Time

Only in the past few decades have we come to understand just how important dietary fat is for health.

For years the medical establishment unfairly demonized fat, not understanding how important it is for our total health.

True, not all fats are good for us.

And some are positively harmful…even some natural sources of fat. But now that we have a better understanding of how the body uses fat for various biological processes we can make clear claims around the importance of these nutrients for perfect health.

Omega-3 fats are some of the most important for our bodies.

And the DHA and EPA (2 different forms of omega-3 found in abundance in fish oil) found in Omega 3 400/300 mg EPA/DHA fish oil are critically important to helping the continuation of various physiological functions.

Without these omega-3 fats your body will find it incredibly difficult to do the following.

And so much more.

There are hundreds of studies linked to omega-3 intake and quality of life that clearly indicate without adequate dietary intake you may slide into a state of brokenness.

Of course, you want to get as much of your omega-3s as possible from food.

Part of the reason food matters isn’t because the quality of food-based nutrients are superior to supplements…it has more to do with how food-based sources of omega-3 come packaged with dozens of other pro-health nutrients (like vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and more).

That being said it can be expensive as well as impractical to get the recommended daily value of omega-3 fats from food alone.

Hence why supplements like our Omega 3 400/300 mg EPA/DHA fish oil serve to help.

As Dr. Wiggy pointed out, our form of fish oil is superior to most other fish oils for a variety of reasons.

You can read his article about those reasons here. 

At the end of the day all you really need to know is it’s vital to your health to get enough omega-3 in your diet. That and where your omega-3 fish oil comes from matters too.

We recommend our brand for the reasons Dr. Wiggy does. Quality and potency.

Of course, the fact that it’s affordably priced helps with our recommendation too.

If you want some then you can grab a bottle or 3 right here.
