There are many benefits to taking fish oil supplements, for both people and animals!  If you think I’m crazy, giving fish oil to domestic pets (dogs and cats) is becoming very common.

Sticking with humans for a minute, the health benefits of fish oil include:

  • Prevention of heart disease
  • Lower cholesterol and blood pressure
  • Improve circulation and joint function
  • Combat anxiety, ADHD, cancer, diabetes and arthritis

The list continues with fish oil being used for other things such as AIDS, muscle inflammation, Alzheimer’s disease, eye disorders, muscular degeneration, ulcers, skin care (psoriasis and acne), pregnancy, fertility and even weight loss.  The bullet points above, however, have been well researched and documented.  As you can see, fish oil has many health benefits and is used to treat many afflictions.  Breaking research is being done with fish oil and many other medical issues, so new things are being added to this list all the time!
