Fish oils


Fish oils contain the active ingredients EPA and DHA. The oils are extracted from the flesh of oily fish such as herrings, mackerel and salmon. These oils are not the same as fish liver oils, which are taken for their vitamin A and D content and are not significant sources of EPA and DHA.

Linda Lazarides is Course Director of the School of Modern Naturopathy and author of eight books on health, nutrition and naturopathy.
