Fish Oil Supplement

Fish OilFish oil is rich in two groups of Omega-3 fatty acids. Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) and Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA). These fatty acids help keep cell walls permeable. Excessive saturated fats and Omega-6’s cause cell walls to become rigid, unhealthy and don’t allow nutrient transfer.
