Fish oil contains the omega-3, which help to reduce the level of "harmful" cholesterol, restoring the correct lipid metabolism. In addition, fish oil has antiaggregatory effect - prevents platelets from sticking together and formation of blood clots and helps to normalize blood pressure and heart rate recovery.
Fish oil capsules produced by different pharmaceutical companies. In its composition comprises polyunsaturated fatty acids omega-3 (eicosapentaenoic, docosahexaenoic, alpha-linolenic acid - at least 20-25%), vitamins A, E and D.
Fish oil is a unique product, which contains large amounts of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids. Omega-3 are essential fatty acids that are not synthesized by the human body, so they must be obtained from food.
Omega-3 fatty acid reduced the normal relationship between lipoprotein and very low density lipoprotein (LDL and VLDL), which is a so-called "harmful" cholesterol (it is deposited in blood vessels, causing atherosclerosis) and high density lipoproteins (HDL), which on the contrary They contain "useful" cholesterol. "Useful" cholesterol is necessary for the body's active ingredient, as is involved in many types of metabolism.
The use of fish oil reduces the risk of complications of the disease that have developed against the background of atherosclerosis - coronary heart disease (CHD), cerebrovascular accident, obliterating (a blockage of the arteries) diseases of the lower extremities.

reduces platelet aggregation (ie prevent them sticking and the formation of blood clots on this background), improve the flow of blood. All this reduces the risk of complications such as myocardial infarction and ischemic stroke.
Fish oil also has immunomodulatory and anti-inflammatory action, which helps to reduce rheumatoid processes, as it reduces the production of biologically active substances involved in inflammatory processes. Omega-3 fatty acids also contribute to improve metabolism

in the brain.
Omega-3 fatty acids are part of many lipid-lowering drugs and dietary supplements, regular intake of which can significantly reduce the risk of complications of disease caused by atherosclerosis.
Under the effect of fish oil can stabilize blood pressure, because it promotes vasodilation by acting on synthesis of substances affecting vascular tone. Has he the property to a certain extent to restore the heart rhythm.
In the body, omega-3 fatty acids are absorbed in the small intestine into the blood penetrate into all tissues. After absorption of omega-3 fatty acids is primarily to the liver, which are included in HDL then enter the peripheral depot lipids and are used to provide the energy needs of the organism.
