The Benefits of Fish Oil

Migraine Proof contains 330mg of Omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil!

Many clinical studies have demonstrated the great health benefits Omega-3s can have with a variety of diseases including migraine headaches and heart disease. Fish Oil is a natural anti-inflammatory which helps reduce the processes that cause many conditions such as chronic migraine. Fish oil helps to reduce inflammation blood clotting and lowers blood pressure. When it comes to migraine headaches fish oil may help reduce inflammation and swelling which may be helpful in reducing the pain of a migraine headache. Studies suggest that fish oil prevents the constriction of blood vessels and can prevent actions in the brain that lead to migraine attacks. Fish oil has been shown in studies to reduce the frequency, duration and severity of migraine headaches.

There are two main types of Omega-3 fatty acids. The long chain Omega-3 fatty acids are EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). These long chain Omega-3s have far more potent health benefits than the short chain Omega-3 fatty acids or ALA (alpha-linolenic acid). Fish oils contain high amounts of both EPA and DHA, whereas ALA fatty acids are commonly found in plants. One additional benefit to taking fish oil as a supplement instead of through eating fish is the reduced risk of mercury contamination. Migraine Proof contains 330mg of Omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil including 160mg of EPA and 105mg of DHA.
