You must have heard how omega 3 is so good for you, how it can be helpful in preventing disease and possibly help you deal with some you may already be suffering with, so you went to the pharmacy to buy some. On entering the store you are faced with the choice of different brands, dosages and types. Your first preference is omega 3, now what do you do?
Which one is better? Is fish oil better than flax seed oil or is flax seed oil best? What is a person to do? You look around for someone to help, but if you are also like them, you really don’t want to ask.
This is not an easy question to answer. They both contain omega 3, that is what you really want. The most pertinant question is, which one you should prefer?
Fish oil has been highly promoted for a long time as a good form of omega 3. Fish oil does not contain (ALA) Alpha-linolenic acid, it only contains (EPA) Eicosaentaenoic Acid and (DHA) Docosahexaenoic Acid. This is a very important fact since not everyone can convert ALA to EPA and DHA. Fish oil can also contain harmful chemicals in it due to the polluted waters in which the fish are bred. Many of our rivers and lakes have pesticides and other toxins in them that the fish are living in and absorbing before being caught to collect the oil from them. There are also farm raised fish that are being used that could provide a much better quality of fish oil.
Flax seed oil contains (ALA) Alpha-linolenic acid . ALA is a type of Omega 3 that can be converted into the DHA and the EPA type that our body needs. As mentioned above, the only problem with ALA is that not everyone is able to convert the ALA into the DHA and the EPA types. Flax seed can be a more desirable way of getting omega 3 since it is plant based. It doesn’t have the fear of the toxins that that fish oil type can possibly contain. You also don’t get the burping after taste of fish. Some people who take flax seed oil complain about bouts of diarrhea but not everyone .
Regular usage of omega 3 is very important for you. It can be beneficial in relieving pain and swelling in case of arthritis. It is good for your heart, helps in decreasing cholesterol levels in your blood, and helps out with high blood pressure. It is also known for helping you prevent cancer of the breast, colon and prostrate.
Omega 3 needs to be an important part of your daily routine. Try to make sure you get enough of it by eating fish a few times a week and eating leafy green vegetables. Walnuts are a good source along with flax seed oil and hemp oil. Including all the above will help you get adequate amounts of the omega 3 types each day. Take supplements if you feel your diet does not contain sufficient omega 3.
When you are at the store trying to decide which supplement to take, it’s really up to you. There are good things about both types and a few bad. The over all value of taking omega 3 over powers the bad but the choice is yours. You have your information, now you decide which you feel is the best.
