Can Fish Oil Help You To Become Slim


I read an amazing fact about fats by Stephanie Karl, a nutritionist. She says you get good fats from eggs, nuts, avocado, butter, cheese, coconut, nut oils, coconut oil, olive oil and flax seed oil. She advises to avoid all trans fats from processed food corn, soy, safflower, sunflower oil and margarine. Hope you got my point.


Coming back to fish oils, it is derived from tissues of oily fish. It contains omega 3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA. Science has found that high fat diets could disrupt new nerve cell formation in the brain. Let me explain this process more clearly.

When you eat high fat diet inflammatory molecules called triglycerides are increased in the blood stream. They prevent hormones from passing into the brain. Now these hormones are secreted from body tissues, they protect neurons and stimulate nerve cell growth.

In animal studies scientists found that omega 3 restores the normal functioning of the neurons by suppressing the production and activity of these triglycerides. The omega 3 does not have a direct effect in this process but it indirectly plays its role. So go ahead and give the fish oil its deserved place in your diet.  

Simply put, fish oil increases the efficiency of brain’s control on the body’s intake of food. In this way it helps you to become slim. On the other hand you should do proper exercises and eat a healthy diet to notice a slimmer version of yourself.

Take care,
