I caught this Nature’s Bounty television commercial for fish oil while watching I think CNN on a Saturday morning.
I like how this 0:15 second commercial shows the woman’s future self accelerated over time an rewinds back. My mother has taken fish oil in the past, but I’ve always wondered (like vitamins), how much of difference it can make to take such supplements. A quick reading on WebMD:
“Fish oil is FDA approved to lower triglycerides levels, but it is also used for many other conditions. It is most often used for conditions related to the heart and blood system. Some people use fish oil to lower blood pressure, triglycerides and cholesterol levels. Fish oil has also been used for preventing heart disease or stroke, as well as forclogged arteries, chest pain, irregular heartbeat, bypass surgery, heart failure, rapid heartbeat, preventing blood clots, and high blood pressure after a heart transplant.”
Besides the above stated benefits, WebMD goes on to list other health benefits of fish oil.
While looking for this commercial online, I also did come across the 0:30 second version of the ad, which has kind of a funny, but non sequitur moment, where the future older woman tells her younger self –
“Don’t marry Dan,” who turns out to be a creepy white guy. I wonder if this version of the ad airs!
