As the topic suggests we are going to discover everything in detail about the two kinds of oil that are mentioned in the topic- fish oil and flax seed oil. The sole purpose of this article is to give you all the necessary information about the two in one single blog. We will try to include every bit of information that you should  be known before making your choice. 

Fish oil

Beginning with the most common type , the fish oil. What most of us know about the fish oil is that it is rich in omega-3 and, nothing ! Just look at the amount of little information we are having in regards to one of the most important oil that we all should be using.

 Well, it’s not that fish oil means catching any fish and just extracting the oil from it but rather it is a very selective process. Fish oil can only be extracted from the tissues of the “oily fishes”, oily fishes are the fishes that have oil stored in their tissues in an organ surrounding the digestive tract i.e. called coelomic cavity and also in the gut. Salmon, tuna, trout , swordfish and mackerel are the best examples of oily fishes. Fish oil capsules are widely used in treating conditions like depression, anxiety, dementia , macular degeneration and many other.

 The main component of fish oil is omega -3 in the form of EPA and DHA that is also effective in countering high blood pressure. Now the question can arise that instead of having fish oil capsules why not have the whole filling fish itself for a yummy dinner then the answer for this is that non vegetarians can have these oily fishes but in a very limited amount as per recommended and special consumption pattern should be followed is a pregnant lady is having it. Another disadvantage of eating oily fishes directly is that you might not know which fish is contaminated and which is not.

 There is a process called biomagnification that occurs in mainly the water bodies in which there is a high amount of toxic retention seen in fishes specially those at a higher level in the food chain and all the fishes mentioned above do fall in this category and are very likely to get contaminated. Eating the meat of these fishes is likely to affect your health severely so why not try looking at its alternative that is so readily available in the market i.e. fish oil capsules even vegetarians can consume it when needed. 

If you are looking out for some good fish oil capsules in the market do check out the Alvizia’s Alenfish Omega 3 oil capsules that are loaded with omega-3 EPA and DHA just in the right quantity. The pricing is also very cost effective.

Benefits of fish oil 

Improves heart health :  Consumption of omega-3 is generally prescribed by the doctors to the heart patients. Heart attack the medical term for which is angina pectoris is mainly caused due to blockage in the veins that carries blood towards the heart. The level of cholesterol in the blood is the main reason for this blockage. Omega-3 of the fish oil helps to counter the blood cholesterol levels.

Prevents Mental disorders : Fish oil prevents and drastically reduces the chances of a person of having any neurological problem or some kind of mental disorders.

Better eyesight : A lesser fact about fish oil can be that it also improves the eyesight if consumed regularly.

Flax seed oil

After gathering much information about fish oil let’s move to another lesser known oil i.e. flax seed oil or the linseed oil derived from the ripened flax seeds commonly known as “alsi ke beej” in hindi. Being an important edible oil and a nutritious supplement once this oil was in high demand but now due to adulteration in this oil the demand has fallen drastically but the health benefits haven’t gone anywhere if you are consuming the right quality of the flax seed oil. 

Flax seed oil is also a very good source of omega -3 fatty acids and is beneficial in a curing a numerous diseases like controlling the growth of cancerous cells in the body, improving heart health, helps in constipation and diarrhoea, makes the skin glow and has endless benefits attached to it. 

It would be difficult to opt for the best flax seed oil capsules available in the market so I have the best one of them linked below that is the Alenflax by Alvizia. You can buy it online from their site at best price.

Link to the official website is given above.

Benefits of Flax Seed Oil 

Prevents cancerous cells : Flax seed oil capsules is believed to have magical properties of reducing the growth of cancerous cells in the body. 

Good for skin:  If you are looking for some natural agent to boast the lustre of your skin and keep it healthy and glowing forever then flax seed oil or flax seed consumed directly is one of the best options available. Grinded flax seed mixed with some jiggery powder and wheat flour can be consumed throughout the year. This is also preferred as a sweet dish after food. 

Reduces Inflammation : Flax seed can help in reducing inflammation of the skin caused due to the growth of some bacteria. 

This was the in detail distinction between the two. The list of pros are mentioned as well. Since both of them are natural ingredients, there are no such disadvantages of consuming them. If taken in the right amount they would always benefit the body. If you are not allergic to them then they are a great choice.
