Fish oil is one of the most popular and comprehensively studied dietary product. In recent years, this health supplement has grown drastically in popularity as more evidence from clinical studies demonstrate the need of regular fish oil supplementation to support cognitive functioning and general health.
Fish oil is a great source of omega-3 fats. omega-3 fatty acids are considered to be "essential" fatty acids because human body needs them to function normally. Fish oil contains two active ingredients of omega-3 that are particularly important for maintaining normal brain function and general health - eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosaheaenoic acid (DHA). Both of these active ingredients are really important and play specific roles. But from a nootropic point of view, DHA has been shown to have various positive effects on neuronal composition, brain chemistry and activities. Its importance in influencing cognitive performance (e.g., learning ability) and behaviour is hardly surprising since DHA is a crucial fatty acid in the brain that makes up around 10-20% of brain fatty tissue. The brain tissue is composed of different types of fatty acids, thus sufficient levels of these fatty acids are absolutely crucial. Any deficiencies may potentially result in neurocognitive deficits, mood swings, high levels of anxiety, the development of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and increased depression levels.
Although, omega-3 fatty acids can be found in different types of food, particularly fatty fish, the typical modern Western diet is often deficient in EFAs. Therefore, a high quality source of fish oil in a dietary form, such as Cerebral Omega is required. Fatty acids have a very high biological activity to provide wide-ranging health benefits. Scientific studies have shown that omega-3 supports your heart, brain and vision so diets high in fish oil promotes better a cardiovascular system, helps support brain and eye health as well as your joints and heart. There is also evidence that fish oil has anti-inflammatory properties. Furthermore, there is sufficient evidence to demonstrate a positive effect on metabolic diseases (e.g., type 2 diabetes) and disease prevention.
Overall, fish oil, namely omega-3 fatty acids, plays an important role in health promotion and optimal cognitive functioning.
The recommended daily dosage of fish oil is between 1000-3000 mg, preferably with meals. A loading phase of approximately 3 weeks is required to achieve the maximal bodily stores of fish oil. Fish oil is derived from anchovies.
Fish oil is considered to be extremely safe with no adverse side effects. However, the most commonly reported side effect in clinical studies is diarrhoea. Therefore, it is important not to exceed the recommended dosage. Unpleasant ‘fish burps’ are also common, but this can be prevented by taking fish oil capsules with meals.
