Fish oil has a wide range of health benefits. They were discovered only in the 1960s. Fish oil has a positive effect on brain function and strengthens the body's immunity during autumn and winter illnesses due to its high content of unsaturated fatty acids and vitamins A and D.

Tran is an oil concentrate derived from the fresh liver of Atlantic cod or other members of the cod family. The fish oil contains a unique composition of essential unsaturated fatty acids (EFAs) from the omega-3 group - including the most important ones, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) - and omega-6, as well as vitamins A and D, which are essential for the proper functioning of the body, particularly during the period of growth.
Because one capsule of cod liver oil contains an average of 300-1250 IU of vitamin A, two capsules suffice to meet the daily requirement for this vitamin (which is around 800 IU in adults, according to data from II in Warsaw). It's the same with vitamin D3: one capsule of cod liver contains 30-125 IU of the vitamin, whereas the daily requirement is 200 IU.
Almost everyone can benefit from fish oil, particularly those who have a higher need for it, such as children and adolescents in their formative years (adolescence), weakened people, particularly the elderly, sick, and convalescent, as well as people who live a stressful lifestyle, abuse alcohol, or smoke cigarettes.
The fish oil strengthens the immune system
Unsaturated fatty acids from the omega-3 and omega-6 groups give the body the building blocks it needs to make anti-inflammatory hormones that help the immune system function better. Vitamin A, on the other hand, seals and regenerates the mucous membranes, preventing pathogenic microorganisms from penetrating them.
This is especially important during the fall and winter seasons, when the mucosa of the respiratory tract is more susceptible to virus or bacteria contact. Of course, supplementation is only one component of improving immunity; it should be used in conjunction with a healthy diet and regular exercise.
Fish oil and other vitamins, on the other hand, should not be taken while on antibiotic therapy because they support not only the weakened body but also the bacteria and viruses that cause the disease. As a result, fish oil and other vitamins should only be given after antibiotic treatment has ended, as they will only help the body's regeneration process.
Omega-3 unsaturated fatty acids improve the blood supply to the brain and the flow of nerve stimuli between gray and white matter, affecting its formation and functioning. As a result, fish oil is primarily recommended for children to help them develop normally and avoid memory and concentration problems, as well as for the elderly to reduce the risk of Alzheimer's disease and dementia.
Scientists have discovered that a woman who consumes the recommended amount of omega-3 fatty acids during pregnancy has a child who is smarter and larger.
Essential fatty acids found in fish oil lower triglycerides and "bad" cholesterol (LDL) levels in the blood while increasing "good" (HDL) cholesterol levels, reducing blood clotting, preventing blood clots, and thus lowering the risk of coronary heart disease and atherosclerosis. Tran also aids in the control of high blood pressure.
Fish oil, specifically the omega-3 fatty acids found in it, reduces the risk of breast, ovarian, and intestinal cancer, according to research conducted by scientists at the University of California. Fish oil, on the other hand, according to researchers at the Washington Center for Genetics, Nutrition, and Health, can reduce the size and number of tumors as well as their proclivity to metastasize.
Macular degeneration is the most common cause of blindness in adults and the elderly, and vitamin A can help prevent it. Its absence can result in twilight amblyopia, also known as night blindness, conjunctival burning and drying, and even corneal ulceration.
The retina of the eye, in turn, contains omega-3 fatty acids. Children who do not consume fish are thought to be at a higher risk of developing visual impairments. However, a lack of them in a pregnant woman's diet can cause retinopathy (which can lead to blindness) in premature babies.
The calcium-phosphorus balance in the body is influenced by vitamin D, which is found in crude oil. It aids calcium and phosphorus absorption, as well as the proper shaping of the bones and teeth. As a result, it is recommended for children and adolescents in their growth stages. Tran is also used to treat bone calcification disorders and to prevent rickets by stimulating tissue regeneration and slowing tissue destruction (including cartilage and epithelial tissue). In the elderly, it can help prevent osteoporosis.
