Blackmores Fish Oil 1000 is a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, traditionally used to relieve joint swelling associated with arthritis. Fish oil is also beneficial to maintain a healthy heart, joints, brain and eyes.
Fish oil is a natural source of omega-3 essential fatty acids. The membrane of every cell in the body is built using essential fatty acids. For optimal health and fluidity membranes utilising phospholipids derived from essential polyunsaturated fatty acids are more fluid and function better than membranes made up of saturated fat or trans-fatty acids. Cell membranes regulate what goes into and comes out of each living cell, and when working at optimal levels the cell will retain health through nutrients and be responsive to hormones.
Omega-3 fatty acids are also used in the manufacture of substances known as prostaglandins and leukotrienes. Prostaglandins and leukotrienes play an important role in maintaining immune function, muscle function, blood function and regulation of inflammation. Fish oil appears to relieve the pain of rheumatoid arthritis due to the role of omega-3 fatty acids in suppressing the production of inflammatory compounds.
Fish oil also helps to lower fats (triglycerides) in blood by inhibiting triglyceride synthesis in the liver, supporting a healthy cardiovascular system.
