Abstract

A significant source of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids is fish oil. These elements are absolutely necessary in human diet. Since it cannot be manufactured by the human body, it must be obtained through diet. It shields us against serious heart conditions, cancer, diabetes, mental illness, arthritis, and a host of other health issues. Thus, fish oil benefits us in a number of positive ways. The advantages of Omega-3 fatty acids for health are outlined in this review paper.

Keywords: Cancer, diabetes mellitus, fatty acids, fish liver oil, heart health, mental disorder
