What is fish oil?

Fish oil is a common term used to refer to two kinds of omega-3 fatty acids: eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). These omega-3 fats are usually found in fish, animal products, and phytoplankton.

The fatty acids EPA and DHA are involved in regulating various biological processes such as the inflammatory response, various metabolic signaling pathways, and brain function.[1] They can be synthesized in the body from alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), but in small amounts for most people.

What are fish oil's main benefits?

Fish oil causes a potent reduction in triglyceride levels,[2]and a more modest reduction in blood pressure in hypertensives.[3]
It appears to notably improve mood in people with major depression, though it's unclear if it has an effect in people with minor depression.[4] EPA, in particular, seems to be the most effective omega-3 fatty acid for this purpose which suggests that the effects of fish oil are due to reducing neuroinflammation. Its anti-inflammatory benefits also seem to extend to reducing the symptoms of systemic lupus erythematosus.[5] However, its benefits shouldn't be assumed to extend to inflammatory diseases in general.
