Feeling Better

Feeling sick? Feeling tired? Lacking energy? There are many ways to help alleviate these feelings. There are so many people living in the world today with so many possible diseases, sicknesses, and disorders that no one person can be careful enough when it comes to preventing infection.

One way is to take nutritional and dietary supplements. These should be taken on a regular basis, according to what your doctor and the medication directs. There are many different supplements available. There are multi-vitamins, diet pills, energy pills, and even sexual enhancers.

One must be cautious when searching for nutritional supplements. Not everything out on the market is that good for you. Some supplements, can even be very unhealthy for you – to the point of being deadly. Therefore, when you’re searching the aisles of the health store make sure to be well researched in the supplements you’re looking for. Then, as a safeguard, take the supplements to your doctor to get his approval.

Some of the best supplements are the ones that have been approved by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA). Not many supplements have to go to the FDA for approval; only the ones that have been requested by a medical professional or general consensus are required to be reviewed.

One supplement that has made waves with nutritional supplement seekers is fish oil. Fish oil is a substance that comes from the tissues of oily fish. Fish oil has Omega 3 fatty acids, which are essential to a human’s body. Omega 3 fatty acids can not be made in the human body, so taking fish oil as a supplement is very useful.

Like humans, fish do not naturally make Omega 3 fatty acids. They get the acids from eating micro algae. Micro algae produce these fatty acids. Herring and sardines also produce the acids, and fish eat these as well. The production of fish oil is based mainly in South America and Scandinavia, in the countries Peru, Chili, Denmark, Norway and Iceland. Peru maintains to be the largest catcher and producer of fish oil, despite the decrease in production of the fish oil that has occurred in the past couple years.

Fish oil is incredibly easy to take. It comes in a variety of forms. There has been some controversy about fish oil because of the mercury that has been found in fish recently. But new and tighter regulations have been created as to protect lovers of fish consumption.

One would think that eating something that was very fatty wouldn’t be good for the body. But the fat that is contained in Omega 3 fatty acids is a very good fat. There are good fats and bad fats, and, fortunately, these acids contain the good. This good fat can be used to help a variety of problems that occur in the human body.

Fish oil is known to be good for regulating cholesterol, blood pressure, heart conditions, and possibly problems associated with Alzheimer’s disease. When taking fish oil one should be careful to take only the directed amount. Taking too high of doses of fish oil can cause excessive amounts of bleeding, which is very deadly.
