Luckily, people have started to become more aware about its importance and how it contributes for a healthy lifestyle and they have started to use it more and more. Certainly, we should also include moderate exercising, less stress and a healthy diet. Fish oil can be found in capsule or liquid form. It’s cheaper to buy it in liquid form, but the smell is stronger, so that’s why people buy it more in capsules.
The capsules are full of glycerides. Their main components are oleic acid, palmitic acid, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. The omega-3 fatty acids corrode quickly when they come into contact with oxygen, but the gelatin capsules are the ones that prevent oxidation and make the product last longer.
The vitamins A and D in fish oil are capable of improving the growth of cells in the mucous membranes as well as the cells in the skin. This oil is excellent for the nails, skin, and hair.
