I haven't done a "My Experience" post in quite a while now, and I thought I'd do one on fish oils, it's benefits and how it's affected me. I have been taking fish oils regularly for quite some time now and I have noticed some results. Here's my experience on them!
I started taking these capsules about a year and a half ago when I noticed my hair and skin was becoming really dull and lifeless. I didn't notice that big of a difference in my skin, but my hair was just becoming all messed up. I've always taken good care of my hair, I've never dyed it, bleached it or even heat treated it that often but still, it felt like it needed that extra "oomph". So, being the ever curious and nerdy person that I am, I decided to hop on over to google and look up things that could benefit my hair. I came across fish oils a lot during my search, so I decided to try those out.
Fish Oils aren't only beneficial for your hair, they have many more uses. They are known to help prevent cardiovascular diseases, to help fight back the risk of cancer, to fight inflammation symptoms of arthritis, to have anti aging properties, to fight long term effects of Type 2 Diabetes etc.
When it comes to hair and skin care, fish oils are known to help strengthen hair, make hair more shiny, providing a glow to your skin and helping to combat signs of aging. They might even help your hair grow, but that depends on individual differences.
I started taking fish oils roughly two years ago. To this day, I swear by them and a couple other supplements that I take. It did take a few months and a lot of dedication to show some results, but paired with another supplement that I take, fish oils have definitely helped grow my hair faster, stronger and shinier. My hair was falling out like crazy and after a couple of weeks of taking fish oils, there was a noticeable decrease in my hair fall.
Now, before you start shoving down fish oil supplements, I highly advise you to do your research first. If you already take a few servings of fish per week, then there's no need for you to take supplements. If, like myself, you don't have fish that often then you can look up some supplements for it. Be warned though, everything when taken in large amounts can have it's side effects. Although there is no concrete evidence, too much of fish oils supplements can lead to high cholesterol levels and a decrease in immunity. So, I highly advise you do your research first and take it in moderate amounts.
I hope this post helped you get some sort of insight on what fish oils are and how they benefit your health. Do you take any supplements?
