So, what is fish oil?

Fish oil is a dietary supplement derived from the tissues of oily fish. It is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for maintaining optimal health. Fish oil has been shown to reduce inflammation, improve brain function, and promote heart health. It is a popular supplement for those who don't consume enough fish in their diet or have specific health conditions that require additional omega-3 intake. Fish oil can be consumed in pill form or added to foods like smoothies or salad dressings. When selecting fish oil supplements, it's important to choose a reputable brand that sources its fish from sustainable fisheries to ensure both quality and environmental responsibility.
