Fish oil contains Omega 3, an essential fatty acid. Omega 3 is also found in lesser amounts in walnuts, flaxseed, wheat germ, and canola oil. The American diet is almost devoid of Omega 3. Seven critical functions of essential fats are:
- Developing and maintaining gray matter in the brain
- Achieving optimal growth
- Maintaining the integrity of cell membranes
- Keeping skin healthy
- Proper visual development
- Maintaining a healthy nervous system
- Regulation of blood pressure, blood clotting and the body's inflammatory response

I am not sure about the term fish oil pills. I take gel capsules containing actual fish oil. What you need to know about them is the quantity of omega-3 fatty acids, specifica…lly DHA and EPA contained in the recommended dose.

According to Healthy-Oil-Planet.com, possible allergies to fish oil may include: hivesitchingswellinganaphylactic shock There may be an increased risk for allergies dependin…g on how the fish oil was processed. Pharmaceutical-grade fish oils are generally free of the allergy causing proteins due to the highly-specialized processing method. Fish oils are an excellent source of omega 3 fatty acids. If you have an allergy fish, you can use alternate sources of omega 3 fatty acids such as flaxseed oil, mussel oil, and krill oil.
A variety of fish, but Cod is very common. It has very high concentrations of beneficial oils in the liver.

It was originally believed that fish oil is better than krill oil. It has now been proven that krill oil is at least 3 times better for you than fish oil. Advertisements for k…rill oil are now being run on TV. The main problem with this is that the numbers of krill are rapidly decreasing due to two problems. 1, global warming is melting ice which contains an algae that krill eat for their main source of food. 2, overfishing of krill because it is more nutritious than fish oil. If krill become an extinct species it will be extremely bad for the marine environment. Krill are whales main source of food and the same with many other marine animals. Squid, seals and other animals rely on krill and without them animals will have to start eating other creatures like fish and squid leaving them extinct too. With none of these animals left the only things left will basically be plankton and not many animals eat plankton because it is so minute. Whales are the main predators of plankton. Although krill oil is better for you it is not a good idea to buy it because it will be a major problem for the marine environment.
Now, it's true-fish and fish oil are fantastic sources of omega-3 fatty acids, but they don't always work for everyone. The other day I saw a patient who was frustrated becaus…e she just couldn't find a fish oil supplement that didn't give her gas or a lousy aftertaste. This isn't common for everyone, but it does happen… so it's important to have an alternative. Another great source of omega-3 fatty acids is flaxseed and flaxseed oil.
