Although I have been writing these articles for a few years now, I am still amazed that some people still want to know, what is the best type of Omega 3 fish oil? You see, I know what the best type of fish oil is, I automatically assume everyone else does as well. However, I will tell you most of the things I think you want to know, in this article.
As far as I am concerned, the best type of Omega 3 fish oil is where the oil has been molecularly distilled to remove the impurities such as the heavy metals, lead, mercury and the toxins such as the PCBs. Now, these toxins are very dangerous, as they can cause cancer, this method of purifying the oil through molecular distillation is the only method that will get rid of them.
The best type of Omega 3 fish oil has the DHA fatty acid as the dominant fat, followed closely by the EPA fatty acid. The two of them join together to help prevent heart attacks. They do this by stopping the platelets in the blood from coming together and forming in to clots. These clots are the main cause of heart attacks and strokes.
The best type of Omega 3 fish oil is the one where the oil comes from the species of fish called the Hoki. This species is native to the cold, deep waters off the coast of New Zealand. They feed on plankton which makes them rich in the essential fatty acids DHA and EPA. The waters around this area are regarded as the most pristine waters in the world.
The company that I buy my oil from puts the Hoki oil and Tuna oil together and forms a combination that gives double the anti-inflammatory properties of other highly concentrated oils. This oil is highly thought after by people who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis and other inflammatory type diseases, as it helps to alleviate the pain often associated with these diseases.
