Fish oil can help prevent inflammatory disease as well as good heart health.  You can get the recommended amount if you eat fatty fish (high in omega-3) at least twice a week.  Wild caught salmon, egg yolks, and grass-fed beef are good examples.  It can also be found on some nut oils, vegetable oils, (flaxseed, or linseed- try Uda oil which is found in the refrigerator aisle at health food stores)

Fish oil can lower triglycerides (plays a role in high cholesterol), help prevent heart disease, slow the buildup of plaques that cause hardening of the arteries and may help reduce blood pressure (everyday health-12/2/10).  It can also reduce inflammation that leads to diabetes.  http://www.cincinnati.md/articlepage_cn.aspx?cn-documentid=642831&query=fish oil benefits=1&cat=con

You can try a fish oil supplement if you don’t like seafood.  I recommend that you invest in a good quality product because it can reduce the smell that some people complain seeps through your pores or are belched up.  Most nutritionist prefers you get omega 3’s from food.  Do what’s convenient, affordable, and works for you.

As always check with your doctor to make sure that any supplements don’t have any negative interactions with drugs you may be taking.
