The article discusses fish oil and its benefits on health, physique and performance. Its main components are essential fats known as omega-three fats, the two types being eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid. With the body unable to produce essential oils on its own, it must be taken from the diet. Omega-three fats from fish oil encourage genes that increase fat burning while deterring genes that increase fat storage, leading to greater fat loss.
