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, to get essential omega 3 fatty acids. Are you not managing to do this and therefore missing 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 DHA). In addition, Omega 3 is good for pregnant women and babies during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Omega 3 is a building block for children's brain growth.

Which fish oil is healthy?

Fish oil is always healthy. So the question is not so much which fish oil is healthy, but what you like about fish oil. Do you care about taste? Arctic Blue 's fish oil comes from fresh fish from Norway, which makes for a not-so-pronounced taste. The fish oil even comes with a subtle orange or anise flavor. You can therefore easily stir the fish oil into yogurt, a shake or smoothie, for example. Do you care about the origin? Arctic Blue's MSC-certified fish oil has the blue label. This is because no extra fish is caught for this fish oil. Do you think fish oil is only healthy if it is pure? Arctic Blue's fish oil is at least 75 times cleaner than tuna if we look at the heavy metal mercury and 20 times cleaner than herring and kibbeling, which are already listed as 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.
