Salmon Oil Benefits are a property of two important omega-3 fatty acids:
Our bodies are not able to produce omega-3 fatty acids on their own, so they are known as essential fatty acids that we must consume through the foods we eat or the supplements we take.
These fatty acids typically occur in fish oils as 18 percent EPA and 12 percent DHA, but in a high quality omega 3 supplement you want to look for a blend containing 30% EPA and 20% DHA.
I apologize for the techy talk, but I want to make sure you understand the science of healthy oils. So, remember these numbers when you go to purchase an omega 3 supplement!
And although I am talking about salmon oil benefits in particular, many common fish oil supplements are made from any combination of mackerel, tuna, salmon, anchovy, sardines and herring. It is salmon, however, that ranks the highest when it comes to the amount of Omega 3 fatty oils mentioned above.
Ok, now that you know what to purchase, let's get to the details of why you would want to purchase them.

These unique omega 3 fatty acids provide a number of impressive health benefits. See for yourself...
Humans are not the only ones who need these salmon oil benefits.
Specifically for your dogs and cats, this is what omega 3 supplements can do for them:
As an aside, if you are looking to understand more about feeding your pets quality food, click onto the I did with a vet and breeder about this exact topic ( or simply scroll down the right hand column to see the radio shows I've produced).
There is a third omega-3 fatty acid, known as alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which is found in high concentrations in flaxseed oil.
I will agree that this is awesome, especially for the vegetarians and vegans in the crowd...that is where I fit in.
Although, we do know that the body has the ability to partially convert the ALA in flaxseed oil into EPA and DHA (the fatty acids found in fish oil), there are a few big BUT's...
So I would highly recommend that even vegetarians include a quality omega 3 supplement derived from fish oil, such as GNLD's Salmon Oil Plus.
Additionally, if you are pregnant or breast feeding, I would highly suggest that you include with your prenatal vitamins a fish oil derived DHA supplement, regardless of whether you are vegetarian or not. The brain development of your baby should not be compromised and you will need a quality DHA supplement.
If you are interested, I discuss more of this in my article on DHA Benefits.
