Is fish oil healthy?

To the question, "Is fish oil healthy?" we can briefly say "yes. Fish oil is a rich source of omega-3 fats. In fact, a spoonful of fish oil contains the same amount of omega 3 fatty acids as 3 to 6 capsules, with the added bonus of vitamin D. This amount of omega 3 is equivalent to more than half a herring!

The advice is to eat fish once a week, preferably oily fish, in order to get essential omega-3 fatty acids.

Are you unable to do this and do you miss out on that important omega 3? Then fish oil is a healthy alternative. Fish oil contains high levels of EPA and DHA, two fatty acids from the omega-3 fatty acid group. EPA and DHA are good for heart function (beneficial effect is obtained with daily intake of 250 mg EPA+DHA). DHA is good for brain function and vision (beneficial effect is obtained with daily intake of 250 mg of DHA). Omega 3 is also good for pregnant women and babies during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Omega 3 is a building block for the growth of children's brains.

Which fish oil is healthy?

Fish oil is always healthy. The question is therefore not so much which fish oil is healthy, but what you like about fish oil. Is the taste important to you? Arctic Blue's fish oil comes from fresh fish from Norway, which provides a not so pronounced taste. The fish oil is even available with a subtle orange flavor or anise flavor. You can easily stir the fish oil into yogurt, a shake or smoothie, for example.

Is the origin important to you? Arctic Blue's MSC-certified fish oil has the blue quality mark. This is because no extra fish is caught for this fish oil. Do you think that fish oil is only healthy when it is pure? Arctic Blue's fish oil is at least 75 times cleaner than tuna when we look at the heavy metal mercury and 20 times cleaner than herring and kibbeling, which are already known to be very clean. Which fish oil is healthy? You choose what you feel comfortable with!

Fish oil and capsules are not only healthy, they are also ideal for people who dislike the smell of fish. There is also special "fish oil" for vegetarians and vegans in the form of vegetable algae oil capsules that are just as healthy and contain as many omega 3 fatty acids as fatty fish.
