What is Fish Oil?
Fish Oil is the oil or fat that is taken from fish tissue.
It comes from oily fish such as anchovies, tuna, herring, and mackerel. It’s sometimes produced from fish liver.
It is recommended to eat one or two portions per week of fish.
This is suggested because it provides plenty of omega-3 fatty acids which help fight against many diseases.
Fish Oil contains around 30% of omega-3’s.
If you are not getting your one or two portions per week, it is recommended to supplement with fish oil.
