Many people want to enjoy the benefits of fish oil. With 30% of Americans at risk for heart disease, and 25% more dealing with chronic pain, it’s no wonder that the benefits of Omega-3 fatty acids have their appeal across a wide variety of people. Many use fish oil for its role in natural pain relief from joint pain, while many others use it to combat their genetic risk factors for heart disease.
With so many wanting to enjoy the benefits of Omega-3 products, but many not wanting to deal with a fishy aftertaste or reflux problems, it’s no wonder that many are seeking alternatives to normal fish oil pills. However, flaxseed oil, one of the most popular and widely sold alternatives, has been shown to serve significantly less benefit and are not absorbed as well or as easily in the body.
In fact, the Omega-3 found in flaxseed oil is entirely different than the Omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil. In the latest blog from Omega-3 Benefit, Flaxseed vs. Fish Oil, we discuss many key differences between ALA, the plant-based Omega-3 that comes from flaxseed oil in, and DHA and EPA. DHA and EPA are found in traditional fish oil and benefits on heart, joint, brain, and overall health and wellness have been shown to be much greater than with flaxseed oil.
Fortunately for those looking for an alternative to fish oil, flaxseed oil is not the only option. While traditional fish oil pills may not be for you, there are a variety of other delivery systems, like fish oil gummies. Krill oil is also much more concentrated, making for a much smaller pill with no odor or aftertaste. Omega XL from the green-lipped mussel is also a great alternative, especially for those who have a shellfish allergy. For more information, visit our new blog, Flaxseed vs. Fish Oil.
