Currently, the popularity of fish oil is truly impressive - especially the speed at which it grows.And it is more, because of its ability to oppose the huge number of all kinds of diseases, of course, make this additive in the storehouse of useful features!However, according to Professor of dietetics - Tom Sanders of King's College London, all of the above properties of fish oil simply exaggerated companies involved in selling it.And invest great hope just one dietary component, at least, stupid, says the scientist.
As it turned out, the basis for these conclusions was the more than 30-year study of Sanders properties of fish oil, as well as the effectiveness of the supplements on the fight against various diseases.In addition, the expert for many years tracked the results of studies conducted in this area by scientists from around the world.
As a result, long-term labor, Tom Sanders managed to find out that the fatty acid omega-3, which are considered the source of all the beneficial properties of fish oil, in fact, much less universal than is generally assumed today."Of course, this component has the ability to have a positive effect on the body.But the effectiveness of this effect is very small "- the professor said.
In particular, Sanders noted that doubly useless consumption of fish oil for weight loss because of its capsules themselves contain calories.Their action has a significant counterweight to the elements, which could help lose weight.Another pointless to adopt these additives is to increase the intelligence, what they say, several scientific works conducted in the US in recent years.As for the benefits of fish oil during pregnancy, it is, according to the scientist, also did not bring much benefit, because omega-3 is initially in very high concentrations found in human breast milk.
to all this, Thomas Sanders added that the best substitute "lauded" the additive is to include in your diet at least two servings of fish a week. They also contain a component of omega-3, but due to different product features, benefitsfrom integrated fish surpasses the performance benefit of only one of its fat.
