Fish Oil Pill regime need a Pill reminder

A Fish oil  Pill regime is followed by over 10 percent of Americans

Fish oil can be taken daily with the help of a pill reminder.  Many people have made the decision that they needed more fatty acids, a.k.a.

Americans spend more than $1.2 billion on fish oil pill.  Fish oil and it’s associated products are the third most widely used supplement..  There is disagreement on how effective fish oil products are?  Even using a fish oil pill reminder may have little to no impact on health and well being.  According to an analysis of 24 studies  based on randomized trials that was published in JAMA Internal Medicine in 2014, there is an “accrual of high-level evidence that the supplements lack efficacy across a range of health outcomes for which their use is advocated.“ Basically, that means there is a lot of evidence indicating that fish oil products aren’t as effective as you think.

As The Washington Post  reported the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is unclear on whether or not they are for

or against fish oils. On one hand, they recommend fish oils, stating that they could be beneficial to heart health.  However, on a separate page on their site, it is suggested that fish oil pills are useless, stating, “Omega-3s in supplement form have not been shown to protect against heart disease.

Using a pill reminder to ensure taking fish oil pills  for it’s benefits has been around since the 1970s.

The New York Times reported that, from 2005 to 2012, there were at least two dozen studies done on fish oil.    Virtually all of them showed that fish   oils had the same effect as a placebo.  Having a daily fish oil pill regime aided with a 7 day pill reminder has shown positive effects.  t’ll be interesting to see how much these kinds of studies affect the way that people take supplements. If it’s any indication, however, people will believe what they want to believe.

A fish oil pill regime is still used by millions.  That means they’ll continue to take fish oils, even if not everyone is sold on the benefits.
