Why is fish oil so important for the lungs? Learn what science says
Written by SOT.COM.AL 15 Tetor 2021
While cases of COVID-19 are present worldwide, it is more important than ever to prioritize our health.
In particular, since coronavirus affects the respiratory system, taking preventative measures to protect your lungs is essential.
Fortunately for us, research suggests that taking fish oil for lung health can not only relieve lung problems, but also slow down the aging of vital organ.
Fish oil for lung health - What science says
It is believed that fish oil is good for the lungs because it contains high levels of omega-3 fatty acids. Your body uses fatty acids as an energy source and there are three types you need - omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9.
The average diet usually contains high amounts of omega-6 and -9 fatty acids. The body can even make its own omega-9 fatty acids. However, most people are deficient in omega-3 fatty acids which you can only get from your diet.
When it comes to your lung health, omega-3 rich fish oil keeps them functioning in several ways. First, it fights inflammation, which is a leading cause of lung damage and dysfunction.
In a Japanese study, researchers found that omega-3s helped treat chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Lung diseases like bronchitis and emphysema fall into the category of COPD and is the fifth leading cause of death in the world. The results from the study showed that subjects consuming omega-3 experienced a decrease in inflammatory chemicals in their blood, as well as less inflammation of the lungs, writes First For Women.
Subjects also did a six-minute walking test and those who took the fish oil were able to walk more and faster. A number of studies have also shown that taking fish oil supplements can alleviate other inflammatory lung diseases like asthma and allergies.
In particular, fish oil supplements reduce symptoms such as swelling in the lungs and shortness of breath, thanks to its anti-inflammatory powers! Fish oil can even help protect the lungs by blocking infections like pneumonia.
