Packed with Omega 3 essential fatty acids, fish oil can provide numerous health benefits, including supporting heart health, brain function, and eye health.1 However, with so many fish oil supplements on the market, it can be tough to know when to take fish oil and which product is the best for your needs. In this blog post, we’ll explore the best times to take fish oil and provide an overview of Nature’s Own fish oil products, which are sustainably sourced and effective in promoting overall wellbeing. 

When to Take Fish Oil? 

One of the questions we often get asked is what is the best time to take fish oil? The answer is it depends on your goals. The best time to take fish oil is consistently with food — the way fats are digested in our body means there’s no significant difference in results whether you take fish oil in the morning or in the evening.2 The best time to take fish oil is with your main meal of the day, alongside your multivitamin if you take one.3 Taking fish oil with food — particularly with a good source of dietary fats — may help to increase the bioavailability of omega 3 fatty acids, making them easier for your body to use.4 

How to Know if You Would Benefit from Fish Oil? 

Most people can benefit from adding fish oil to their daily supplement routine. However, certain groups may benefit more than others. For instance, individuals with heart health concerns or high cholesterol may see a reduction in their symptoms by taking fish oil supplements.1 Lastly, pregnant women, and children can benefit from taking fish oil, as it can help promote healthy brain and eye development.1 

What is the Best Fish Oil?
