11 primary fish oil benefits for women

One of the most needed and highly beneficial supplements you can take – man, woman or child – is omega-3 fish oil (not flaxseed oil) for dozens of benefits. One of the most studied of all supplements for decades, it has a far-reaching effect on your mood, arteries, skin and longevity. Here’s a tiny handful of benefits especially for women:

  1. BREAST CANCER: research shows women with a high intake of fish oil have a 50% lower chance of contracting breast cancer. DHA is a natural anti-inflammatory which stops cellular transformation, kills cancer cells and protects against breast cancer.
  2. MENSTRUAL CRAMPS/PMS: this is usually the result of too little omega-3. Take 3 fish oil soft gels daily
  3. IMPROVES FERTILITY: this is directly related to the amount of fish oil you consume which balances hormones, improves hormonal levels and increases blood flow to the uterus. Eat more fatty fish too
  4. HEALTHY BABIES: omega-3 fish oil is essential for a healthy pregnancy. Due to excellent placental blood flow and efficient exchange of nutrients and oxygen between mother and baby it promotes.
  5. PRE-ECLAMPSIA PREVENTION: hypertension during pregnancy known as pre-eclampsia is a dangerous condition. Omega-3 fish oil helps to maintain healthy blood pressure in everyone reducing risk for both mother and baby.
  6. FULL-TERM BABIES: fish oil reduces risk of premature birth. Thus ensuring healthy and fully-developed lungs in the infant and a healthy birth weight.
  7. FETAL BRAIN DEVELOPMENT: a baby’s brain is especially dependent on the fatty acids in omega-3 fish oil. DHA has been found to ensure proper brain development which also increases a child’s intelligence, eyesight and motor skills development. DHA is only found in fish oil.
  8. LESS POST-PARTUM DEPRESSION: studies show women with a higher consumption of fish oil suffer significantly less postpartum depression.
  9. FEWER MENOPAUSAL PROBLEMS: I see this a lot – fish oil balances hormones and dramatically reduces menopausal symptoms such as hot flushes, depression and mood swings.
  10. PROTECTS BONES: having high levels of fish oil fatty acids (DHA & EPA) has been shown to lower your risk of osteoporosis, which is an especially high risk for women after menopause. It even helps build bone.
  11. PROTECTS YOUR HEART: heart disease kills more women prematurely than any other disease. This includes breast cancer and this danger in women increases after menopause. Omega 3 fish oil with EPA and DHA is possibly one of your best defences.

Triglycerides, cholesterol and blood pressure all respond amazingly to fish oil – from the time a woman is born to the time she dies, fish oil is a powerful nutrient in her arsenal. It MUST be pure, top quality, molecularly distilled fish oil. Clean with no pollutants or mercury – or you are wasting your time.
