Prevents painful cold hands.
Fish oil supplements can help improve tolerance to cold and delay the onset of vasospasm in people with primary Raynaud’s syndrome, a condition where the blood vessels in the hands don’t respond properly to exposure to cold.
Note: Treatment of these conditions often requires 1,000 to 3,000 mg of fish oil a day. Getting even 1,000 mg a day is often more than can readily be achieved with diet. We recommend supplemental fish oil. Talk with your doctor first if you have existing cardiovascular disease. People taking more than 3,000 mg of fish oil from supplements should do so only under a doctor’s care, as high intakes can cause excessive bleeding in some people.
The Anti-Aging Bottom Line: Rarely has one supplement been so extensively researched and had so many benefits conclusively attributed to it. If you aren’t taking a top notch fish oil supplement, we strongly recommend that you start now!
