3. The immune system will improve.
In many countries, polyunsaturated acids are added to regular foods like butter or margarine. The thing is, this is an additional source of the omega-3 contained in fish oil, and it stimulates the production of prostaglandins. They make the immune system stronger and help the body deal with infection.
4. Stamina will improve.
Michael Hutchinson in his book, Faster: The Obsession, Science and Luck Behind the World’s Fastest Cyclists, writes that the only thing he is 100% sure of is that fatty acids, omega-3, and fish oil really work.
Scientists confirm this: after taking these nutrients regularly, the body starts using the fat during long workouts saving the storage of glycogen for more difficult exercises. This increases the time an athlete can exercise.
5. The risk of motor skill problems will decrease.
In the middle of the last century, it was noticed that people who live near the sea and eat fish have joint pains less often. This is because joints need fat: without fat, the joint tissues lose the elasticity which eventually leads to injuries. Of course, fish oil is not very effective at treating arthritis but it’s definitely great for preventing this problem.
