Fish Oil


My doctor recommended fish oil to me a year ago. I don't know why and based on what, but she said it will help your heart. Now that I have changed my city, I do not see her anymore. I stopped it a few months ago. Should I return to use it or no?

Also, I started weight lifting a few months ago, and some people recommended fish oil to me. Is there any problem if I use it for that purpose?

Re: Fish Oil

Fish oil is good to lower cholesterol. Well, that is what I heard. It contains omega-3 acid. You will see lots of benefits from it.

Some people say you need to take a lot to see it in effect (in terms of lowering cholesterol), or it is really useless.

I used to take it, but kind of lazy and didn't take it. Last check up I ended up having high cholesterol. I am taking it now and this time diligently. Let's see how it does for me.

I am not sure why your doctor recommended that to you but fish oil does have lots of benefits, taking it at least 2 a day will help (with proper diet and exercise), but you really need to do it diligently and it will be a waste.
