The Science of Fish Oil

The science of fish oils lies in one word “eicosenoids”. Eicosenoids are short-lived messengers used by the body to promote different types of “reactions”. As in any good story there are “good” guys and “bad” guys. The typical American diet combined with a lifestyle of stress tends to favor the bad eicosenoids. These bad eicosenoids send messages to the body that promote blood clotting and chronic inflammatory processes. They have been implicated in cardiovascular disease, atherosclerosis, arthritis, asthmas, and auto-immune disease. Getting adequate amounts of fish oils provides the essential fatty acids that favor the production of good eicosenoids. Research has proven these good eicosenoids inhibit blood clotting, relax blood vessels, lower blood pressure, lower LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, raise HDL cholesterol, reduce insulin resistance (which can lead to adult onset diabetes), reduce the harmful cardiovascular effects of stress, and reduce age-related senility.

In short it is best to promote the good eicosenoids through proper diet, stress management and fish oil supplementation.
