When women with PCOS consume the omega-3 fats found in fish oil, the severity of PCOS is reduced, according to several recent medical studies.
The severity of PCOS is associated with excessively high levels of the hormones insulin and testosterone, and depressed levels of adiponectin. Daily consumption of fish oil has a corrective action on all of these hormones, according to these studies.
In addition, research evidence indicates that fish oil is helpful for these health issues: insulin resistance, inflammation, heart disease, high blood pressure, elevated triglycerides (blood fats), diabetes, fatty liver disease, excessive weight, and depression or mood disorders.
This fish oil is a pharmaceutical grade product with a uniquely high proportion of EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) to DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). The higher level of EPA may be helpful for conditions such as depression.
Fish oil appears to reduce the severity of fatty liver disease. Up to one-half of women with PCOS have this disorder.
Don't make the mistake of buying the cheapest fish oil. Here's why. Fish oil comes in two forms: "ethyl-ester" and "triglyceride". The ethyl-ester form is cheaper to manufacture but it also is harder to digest and is very prone to rancidity. Therefore, you absorb a smaller amount of the vital EPA and DHA fatty acids. Also, the rancidity increases inflammation.
In contrast, the triglyceride form is 1.7 times more absorbable, plus it's a natural form that is more stable and less likely to turn rancid. It's also less likely to cause you to burp a fishy odor.
This product is the triglyceride form of fish oil -- the most desirable.
The second big issue with fish oil is purity. Many fish oil products contain heavy metals or environmental chemicals. This product has been verified by independent laboratory analysis to be free of these contaminants.
