Should men take fish oil?
Hormonal imbalances in men can cause problems that range from infertility to low libido to weight gain or mood changes. So, can fish oil help?
Fish oil provides omega-3 fatty acids, including DHA and EPA. Here are some ways they interact with men’s health and hormones:
🐠 Fish oil supports testicular health (including sperm count and free testosterone levels) in young healthy men.
🐠 Fish oil increases testosterone levels and improves insulin resistance in overweight and obese men.
🐠 Fish oil helps to lower triglyceride levels, which are commonly elevated in metabolic syndrome and prediabetes.
