About Fiskolia- fish oil supplements, why to take and how?
Why to take fish oil supplements?
Foods high in Omega-3 from the type of EPA and DHA are mainly sourced from the sea like fish, seafood and certain types of algae.
ALA (alpha-linolenic acid), another omega-3 fatty acid, is found in plant-based food sources such as nuts and seeds and some leafy vegetables.
Your body can convert some ALA into EPA and then to DHA, but only in very small amounts.
For that reason, getting EPA and DHA from foods (or supplements, like fish oil) is the practical way to increase levels of these omega-3 fatty acids in your body.
About Fiskolia- Icelandic fish oil omega 3, how does it taste like and how to take it?
Fiskolia fish oil is a Superior Taste Award winning bottled fish oil.
Fiskolia fish oil taste good and does not have any aftertaste or burping effect.
This enables consumption of fish oil for those who dislike typical fish oil taste or capsules.
It comes in Orange or Natural taste, both are good because of the finest raw materials and gentle processing method that ensure low oxidation levels.
The product sustains its pleasant taste throughout the product life cycle.
Fiskolia offers three options for liquid fish oils to choose from- natural fish oil, orange flavour fish oil and a fish oil with Astaxanthin (sourced from Icelandic algae) that is also an orange flavoured.
Astaxanthin is a reddish pigment that belongs to the carotenoids family.
It occurs naturally in certain algae and causes the pink or red colour in salmon, trout and other seafood.
Astaxanthin offers photo-protective, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory effects.
The recommended daily dosage is 1 tablespoon (10 ml) that will provide you:
- EPA + DHA 1380 mg

I recommend to take it with a meal for better absorption.
