Fish Oil Strikes Again!
Fish oil is good for cutting!

Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA, C22:6), a (n-3) fatty acid in fish oil, has been shown to decrease body fat and fat accumulation in rodents. We investigated the direct effect of DHA on cell growth, differentiation, apoptosis, and lipolysis using 3T3-L1 adipocytes. Cells were treated with 25-200 mumol/L DHA containing 0.2 mmol/L alpha-tocopherol or bovine serum albumin vehicle as a control. Proliferation of preconfluent preadipocytes was not affected by the DHA treatment. When added to postconfluent preadipocytes, all concentrations of DHA inhibited differentiation-associated mitotic clonal expansion (P < 0.01). Postconfluent preadipocytes demonstrated apoptosis after 48 h with 100 mumol/L DHA and after 24 and 48 h with 200 mumol/L DHA (P < 0.01). Differentiation was examined by Oil Red O staining and glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GPDH) activity after DHA treatment for 6 d. DHA decreased mean droplet size and percent lipid area in a dose-dependent manner (P < 0.01). GPDH activity was also decreased by DHA treatment (P < 0.01). In fully differentiated adipocytes, DHA increased basal lipolysis compared with the control (P < 0.01). These results demonstrate that DHA may exert its antiobesity effect by inhibiting differentiation to adipocytes, inducing apoptosis in postconfluent preadipocytes and promoting lipolysis.
I have a book that says eat fat lose weight.
The Author goes into some pretty good detail about Omega 3's and fat loss.
Well, not to mention the obvious anti-inflammation.
I love fish oils and cant say enough positive things about them.
They are cheap.
I am 47 yr's old and I noticed about 2-3 months after taking 12 a day I could piss harder with more volume.
I was wondering why this was then I realized that the only thing diffrently was the fish oils.
Fish oils help PG-1 and PG-3 and these are anti-inflammatory prostaglandins.
The highest concintration of prostaglandins in the mans body is the prostate.
So, kind of put 2 and 2 together.
Beings is the prostate is pretty much the man's achilies heal, this could be a very good thing.
DHA is also good for depression and anti-alzheimer's.
