Should you be taking omega-3 supplements?

Gansbaai Pharmacy

We all need essential fatty acids for optimum health, but many people are eating too many omega-6 fatty acids (mainly from soybean and vegetable oils), and not enough omega-3 fatty acids (found in oily fish, walnuts and freshly ground flaxseed). This imbalance can lead to an increased risk of heart disease, inflammatory conditions, and other health concerns.

While eating several servings of oily fish per week is a start, you may want to take supplements, especially if you don’t enjoy fish. Available in capsule forms, omega-3 is effective at helping to reduce blood pressure, is beneficial to the nervous system, and can even help address mild to moderate depression. Begin with small daily doses.
