Fish oil is derived from the tissues of oily fishes and is one of the most commonly consumed dietary supplements. Fish oil is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, which are very important for your health, including protecting against many diseases. Around 30% of fish oil is made up of omega-3s while the remaining 70% is made up of other fats. What’s more, it also has vitamin A and Vitamin D.

Steadfast Nutrition has a premium fish oil.SN Fish Oil is extracted from Sardine fish, which is a fatty fish and provides high-quality Omega 3 fatty acids which strengthen joints, reduces inflammation, improves cardiovascular health and cognitive functioning of the body. It contains Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) in the ratio of 3:2 which works best for the human body utilisation. EPA and DHA are precursors of certain eicosanoids which can help in reducing inflammation in the body. Apart from this, Omega 3 fatty acids have been related to improved immunity, lowering bad cholesterol and enhancing the overall health status of the body. Fishes do not produce these Omega 3 fatty acids by themselves but store them by consuming algae or prey fishes. Marine and freshwater fishes vary in Omega 3 content because of their different level of lipids in the organs. Fishes like herring, mackerel, salmon, tuna and others contain a higher percentage of Omega 3 fatty acids. However, the major drawback with these fishes is the accumulation of a higher level of mercury which can lead to toxicity in the body. Fatty predatory fishes like shark, swordfish and others are more prone to toxicity because of the accumulation of toxins through biomagnification as they are top on the position in the food chain. Sardine fishes are a great source of Omega 3 fatty acids and vegetarian options which contain Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) get converted to EPA and DHA in the body through a cascade of reactions. However, the conversion rate is limited in the body because of different hormonal reasons and the presence of anti-nutrition factors.
