      Because of these systemic effects, fish oil produces many health benefits. It lowers triglycerides, reduces your risk of cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, menstrual pain, psoriasis, lupus, inflammatory bowel disease, psoriasis and several forms of cancer, including prostate, colon, endometrial and breast. About 60 percent of your brain’s mass and 70 percent of the myelin sheath that protects your neurons consists of fatty acids. Fatty acids also play a critical role in the biochemical communication that takes place in your brain using dopamine and serotonin. Consequently, fish oil can enhance cognitive functioning and improve mental health conditions such as bipolar disorder, depression and schizophrenia, reports the University of Maryland Medical Center and MedLine Plus.
      Side Effects
      Some people experience side effects of fish oil. For example, the positive effect it has on prostaglandin production can create problems for some people. Fish oil thins your blood, which generally enhances blood flow, but if you are already taking blood thinners, such as clopedigrel, warfarin or aspirin, or if you are simply unaccustomed to the increased blood flow, you might experience dizziness or become prone to swelling or excessive bleeding. Fish oil can also lower blood sugar in people with type 2 diabetes, so it may be necessary to adjust diabetes medications such as metformin, insulin, flipizide and glyburide. Harvard Health Publications advises that people with severe angina, lethal ventricular rhythms or seriously compromised heart functions may not be good candidates for supplementation with fish oil. While many mild side effects to fish oil clear up after a couple weeks, if you feel dizziness; arm, chest, jaw or back pain; difficulty breathing; fast or irregular heart beat; sweating; nausea; tightness in the chest; or wheezing, consult with your physician immediately.
