Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/27/2015 -- Due to the increasing number of individuals worldwide who are suffering from a variety of medical conditions, the use of natural ingredients is becoming more and more popular. Natural ingredients such as fish oil are believed to help fight cardiovascular ailments and other conditions. However, it seems that fish oil has a lot more to offer than just fighting a range of diseases.
Research finds fish oil beneficial for teenage development. Fish oil is believed to be very therapeutic, and it has beneficial effects on heart disease, blood pressure and brain development in adults. Now, preliminary research shows it offers similar benefits for teenagers.
"Fish oil contains omega-3 fatty acids such as EPA and DHA, both of which are believed to have powerful therapeutic benefits," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.
There are many health benefits associated with the use of fish oil. It is believed to help lower LDL levels, which are considered to be bad cholesterol, and raise HDL or the good cholesterol. It also decreases certain risks, such as stroke and heart attack, associated with heart disease. Other health benefits associated with fish oil intake are reduction in blood triglycerides and blood pressure. Fish oil is also believed to be helpful for thinning the blood, which reduces the likelihood of the arteries being hardened.
The Journal of Pediatrics published a study that involved 78 teenage boys who were overweight and were between the ages of 12 and 15. They were divided into two groups; one received fish oil supplements containing DHA and EPA, and the second was the placebo group. It was found that the teens who received the supplement experienced a significant reduction in blood pressure and a raise in HDL cholesterol levels. The researchers believed that EPA and DHA are essential for brain development and growth among teenagers.
Parents who want to nourish their teenage children with the right amounts of omega-3 fatty acids should incorporate fish into their family's diet. There are certain types of fish that contain high levels of omega-3s such as tuna and salmon. For teenagers who do not fancy eating fish, they can take fish oil supplements instead.
Fish oil supplements have been long been used as a great alternative to eating omega-3-rich food. Supplements contain high amounts of the omega-3 fatty acids, namely DHA and EPA. What makes supplements even more advantageous is that they often have very low levels of pollutants and heavy metals such as mercury, which are widely present in fish (amazon.com/Omega-Fish-Oil-Supplement-Softgels/dp/B00O8NS20K).
