What is fish oil?
The fish oil story starts back in the 1970’s when two Danish scientists, Jorn Dyerberg and Hans Olaf Bang, visited some remote Inuit villages in the northwest of Greenland.
The people in those villages ate mostly seals, whales and fish, according to Jorn and Hans. At the time, popular thinking was that if someone had a diet so rich in animal fat there would be a high percentage of cases of heart disease but in fact there were very few which intrigued the scientists.
While they were there, they drew samples of blood from 130 Inuits which showed low levels of cholesterol and triglycerides and are viewed as markers of heart disease.
Eventually, the scientists hypothesised that the low levels of heart disease among the Inuit was caused by the high level of omega-3s in their fishy diets.
One of the first major tests of this idea was published in the British medical journal the Lancet in 1989. The test, which is often referred to as the DART study, looked at more than 2,000 Welsh men who had suffered a heart attack; some were told to eat more oily fish. That group, it turned out, was 29 percent less likely to die over the next two years.
Fish Oil is rich in the omega 3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).
Because the oil is taken from the liver of the fish, it is also rich in vitamins A and D. In fact, fish oil is believed to contain higher concentrations of vitamins A and D than any other common food.
These are two of the most deficient vitamins in the UK, and many people choose to take fish oil supplements during the winter months when natural sunlight and vitamin D are in short supply.

Should I take a fish oil supplement?
Fish oil is ideal for the majority of people who don’t eat enough oily fish.
