Fish oil is a dietary nutrient that has become quite popular in recent years. In 2021, the global fish oil market will reach 18.282 billion, and it is expected to reach 26.341 billion in 2027, and my country will account for a large part of it.
While fish oil is hot, controversies about it have always existed. For example, people once believed that fish oil can reduce the occurrence of heart disease, but the research did not give more conclusions. So is fish oil effective, and are there any side effects? Take Wrightweijian Jinzhi fish oil as an example, let’s take a deep look together.
1. What is fish oil?
Fish oil is mainly extracted from deep-sea fish, and may also be extracted from offshore freshwater fish. It is generally believed that deep-sea fish oil is of higher quality and purity. Fish oil mainly contains EPA and DHA, two important omega-3 fatty acids. It is generally believed that DHA is helpful for the development of eyes, brain and nerves, while EPA is beneficial for emotional stability.
Golden Fish Oil contains 1320 mg of omega-3 per serving (2 capsules), including 578 mg of EPA And 742 mg of DHA, which is 4 times the content of ordinary 300 mg fish oil.
2. Is aurea oil effective?
Fish oil research actually includes 5 aspects, such as cardiovascular, immune, intestinal tract, pregnancy, brain and spirit.
In terms of cardiovascular disease, scientists first discovered that people who often eat fish are less likely to suffer from coronary heart disease, and believed that it was due to the omega-3 in fish; and 10 studies of 77,917 people in 2018 showed that fish oil It does not prevent heart disease.
Seeing this, many people may mistakenly think that fish oil has no effect. But in fact, people who regularly consume high levels of omega-3 may maintain this habit for many years, while the fish oil intake experiment only took a few months. These people may already have cardiovascular problems.
In the same year, a 13.5-year study found that people with high omega-3 content in fat had a low probability of suffering from peripheral artery disease and could also reduce the incidence of myocardial infarction. The “Guidelines for the Prevention and Treatment of Dyslipidemia in Chinese Adults” pointed out that fish oil with an omega-3 purity of more than 85% has a more obvious effect on lowering blood lipids, so the purity of fish oil may be one of the important influencing factors.
In addition, studies have found that fish oil supplementation can alleviate mild cognitive decline and depression; fish oil intake during pregnancy can improve children’s cognitive abilities; Asthma risk at age.
In the intestinal tract, fish oil supplementation can increase the number of short-chain fatty acid bacteria in the intestinal tract, which may be used to regulate the intestinal flora in the future. Immunological studies have found that patients with rheumatoid arthritis experience less pain after fish oil supplementation.
In general, although fish oil is not as magical as people imagine, it can improve the cognition of the elderly and relieve depression , improve pregnancy outcomes, and reduce rheumatoid arthritis pain, etc., still have their own role.
Since omega-3 is the main ingredient in fish oil, of course the higher the purity and content, the greater the effect.
The test results of Guangzhou Jinzhi Testing Technology Co., Ltd. show that the active ingredients of Jinzhi fish oil have reached more than 96% of the highest in the market. Therefore, for its actual effect, perhaps more expectations can be given.
3. Does fish oil have side effects?
Generally speaking, fish oil has no side effects, but if it is extracted from common miscellaneous fish, the amount of omega-3 contained in the fish is small, and these fish are also susceptible to Pollution.
Therefore, if you want to ensure the purity of fish oil from raw materials, you generally choose salmon, anchovies and other deep-sea cold-water fish, which are pure and free from pollution, and the extracted fish oil is also of higher purity. The reason why fish oil chooses wild anchovies from Peruvian fish farms.
Because fish oil is likely to be harmful due to residual heavy metals in raw materials and processes, corresponding product testing is required, such as the “San’an Test” of Jinzhi fish oil, including heavy metals, microorganisms, and pesticide residues.
Moreover, the detection of acid value, peroxide value, moisture and volatile matter, and iodine value has surpassed IFOS five-star standards, and has obtained FOS Friend of the Sea certification and EU inspection and quarantine certification.
Of course, fish oil is suitable for young people with eye and brain fatigue and most middle-aged and elderly people, but it also has corresponding taboos. For example, fish oil has an anticoagulant effect, so when using anticoagulant drugs such as warfarin, or before or after surgery, fish oil needs to be taken with caution. High concentrations of fish oil, although the effect is more obvious, may also produce a stress response, requiring the body to adapt.
So, do we all need fish oil supplements?
For most healthy people, if their diet has more than 300 grams of oily fish intake twice a week, including salmon, anchovies, etc., or seafood is included in their daily diet (be careful High purine risk), perhaps without additional fish oil supplementation. If the above conditions are not available, Omega-3 supplementation can be carried out through gold to fish oil.
In the process of supplementing fish oil, you can observe the quality of the fish oil, such as whether it is clear and golden, whether it will freeze in the refrigerator (The purity and quality of unfrozen winterized fish oil are higher), understanding its raw materials, corresponding purification technologies such as mainstream multi-stage molecular distillation technology, quality certification, brand qualifications, etc., so as to avoid stepping on the pit.
In any case, fish oil that can supplement omega-3 is indeed a common nutrient, but its role should not be exaggerated, nor should it be completely denied, we should look at it objectively and rationally.
