Omega-3 found primarily in fatty fish with high oil content, consists of both eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Research has shown increasing evidence for anti-inflammatory, antithrombotic, antiarrhythmic and antiatherogenic effects of omega-3.
Higher fish intake is associated with decreased incidences of coronary artery disease and cardiovascular mortality in several prospective cohort studies 1-4, 7, 8. A recent meta-analysis launched by the Agency for Health Care Research and Quality found favorable effects of fish oil on cardiovascular and overall mortality. With this mounting evidence, the American Heart Association recommends 1g of fish oils in all patients with documented coronary artery disease via diet or through supplementation9. Putting it in perspective, a minimum of one fish meal per week has been associated with a 52% reduction in sudden cardiac death5. Fish that are especially rich in the beneficial oils known as omega-3 fatty acids include mackerel, tuna, salmon, sturgeon, mullet, bluefish, anchovy, sardines, herring, trout, and menhaden. They provide about 1 gram of omega-3 fatty acids in approximately 3.5 ounces of fish.

It is well known that a diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids reduces the body’s overall burden of chronic inflammation and may prevent many diseases associated with chronic inflammation such as heart disease, cancer, obesity, etc. In addition to the obvious overall health benefits, Omega-3 fatty acids may potentially reduce body fat percentage and belly fat10,11. Omega 3 fatty acids have also been found to increase metabolism and fat burning capacity. In one study, subjects who received 1.8 grams of omega-3 containing EPA & DHA daily over a three-week period reported two pounds of fat loss. This is compared to the 0.66 pounds of fat loss reported by participants who received a placebo12. Furthermore, In a 3-week clinical trial, participants who combined daily supplementation of omega-3 with a healthy diet and regular exercise experienced more than three pounds of additional weight loss than those who combined a healthy diet and regular exercise with a placebo13.
Omega-3 found in fish oil could provide a safe, inexpensive, and most importantly, effective option for supporting general health and well being in addition to supporting weight loss in conjunction with diet and exercise.
