I’ll be sharing how to use fish oil for weight loss, and what you should look for when buying a fish oil supplement.
What is fish oil?
Fish oil is made up of the essential omega 3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA.
Essential fatty acids simply means it’s essential for the body to consume them via food, since the body can’t create them on it’s own.
6 fish oil benefits for weight loss and more:
#1. Fish oil may help with weight loss
Fish oil is very beneficial to a lean and healthy body, because it helps improve insulin sensitivity, thus increasing weight loss by helping your body burn more stored body fat for energy, rather than sugar from carbohydrates.
#2. Fish oil can decrease inflammation in the body:
Excessive inflammation in the body not only increases the risk of disease and illness, but it also makes it hard for the body to lose weight and build muscle.
By improving your omega 3 to omega 6 ratio, it will help reduce chronic and acute inflammation, such as joint pain and muscle soreness after a workout.
#3. Fish oil may help you build muscle:
Fish oil may also help improve protein synthesis, which is required for muscle building.
#4. Fish oil can be healthy for heart health:
Fish oil may help reduce triglycerides, which is the fat in the blood. By reducing your triglyceride levels, it helps reduce inflammation on the arteries of your heart.
#5. Fish oil is great for healthy skin, hair, and eyes
#6 Fish oil may help improve your endurance:
Supplementation of fish oil or krill oil may help improve blood flow as well as lung capacity, by improving the distribution of oxygen to the working muscles. This can lead to more weight loss and increased muscle building results.
What should you look for in a fish oil supplement?
Some unethical companies are capitalizing on the benefits of fish oil, by offering low quality fish oil supplements that are potentially rancid and contaminated.
A good way to test if your fish oil is rancid is by chewing a fish oil capsule after opening up the bottle for the first time.
Fish oil taste test:
– If it is a good quality fish oil, it’ll taste fairly mild.
– If the fish oil is rancid, it’ll give off an acidic taste.
For weight loss, look for a high quality fish oil supplement that contains a 3:2 ratio of EPA to DHA.
If you’re suffering from inflammation, focus on a high quality fish oil supplement that has a higher dosage of EPA.
For brain health, look for a high quality fish oil supplement that contains a higher dosage of DHA.
How much fish oil should I take to lose weight?
Unhealthy individuals can benefit from a much higher dosage than healthy individuals.
The American Heart Association recommends 4 grams of EPA and DHA a day for people with high triglycerides.
Also athletes who train with more intensity and frequency can also benefit from a higher dose of fish oil.
I aim for 3 grams of EPA and DHA per day.
Bottom line on fish oil benefits
If you can only afford one supplement, it many cases, fish oil should be the one.
But remember, adding fish oil to a poor diet and non-active lifestyle may help, but it’s not a magic bullet.
