Major Benefits of Omega-3 Fish Oil:
Let’s Talk About Benefits
Let’s get specific.
I can think clearly now: Recently, I sent over a couple of bottles of Omega-3s to a neighbor who is in her late fifties. She is a Montessori teacher, which means she works with young kids and needs a lot of energy. She was feeling depressed and thought she was suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder.
I asked her to take a couple of capsules a day and let me know if she felt any better within a few days. “Garey, I was laying in bed early this morning and had a math problem rolling around in my head. The answer came easily and was crystal clear. I haven’t been able to think this clearly in years! Could it be the Omega-3s?” You tell me. I get this kind of reaction all the time.
Heart Health Benefits: As highlighted by my own story above, maybe the most significant and well-known benefit of taking an Omega-3 daily is the heart health benefits. If you were to rely on television commercials for your heart health education, you would think cholesterol is the enemy of heart health. Nothing could be further from the truth.
The Cholesterol Theory was enunciated through a heart study called the Framingham Heart Study. It is the longest running study of its kind. The early conclusions drawn more than 50 years ago associated high cholesterol with heart disease. In fact the findings were entirely premature. It would be similar today to saying if you have a television in your house you are likely to have a heart attack, because most Americans who have heart attacks have televisions in their houses.
In fact, since 2002 many more studies are indicating that it’s systemic inflammation that compounds the cardiovascular system which is the answer to the question, “Why do I have high cholesterol?” The evil contusion of pronouncing a risk factor with a test only administered by physicians led to the multi billion-dollar drug genre called statins. To be sure, statins lower cholesterol.
Unfortunately that can be injurious to your health. Whatever cholesterol your liver is producing is the amount that your body needs and when you artificially lower your cholesterol, you also lower your Co-enzyme Q10 levels and increase risk to your heart health manifold. Better to take a remedial course of Omega-3s and enjoy a natural way to modulate the fats in your blood with this naturally occurring super food.
The real truth about statins is that the methodology of statins was known to the Chinese thousands of years ago and if you want a natural statin, just buy red yeast rice and you can lower your cholesterol if you really think that would help. In epidemiological studies only a cholesterol level of 250 mg/dl or higher had any statistical significance of increased risk. This idea of lowering cholesterol through drugs, which caused harm to muscle tissue and liver tissue, is rather lame when the same can be accomplished by modifying the diet.
Here’s the secret: Eat a lot more vegetables that contain plant sterols and take Omega-3 fish oil. It’s a lot safer too. Don’t forget to go for a walk everyday!
Inflammation Reduction: As stated above, systemic inflammation is the critical key to controlling heart disease risk factors. Inflammation is caused by an acidic, highly oxidized diet. Let me translate: Junk food, fast food, trans fats, and sugar are the true enemy of humankind.
These are vitamin deficient foods that rob you of the ability to live a life of optimal health. Sure, the body is miraculous and as you have noticed if you have teenagers in the house, they can eat six meals of junk food a day and seeming remain fit! The body will make do with what you feed it, for a time. If you were to watch the movie, “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead” a documentary by Australian born Joe Cross, the message is blatantly obvious that we are digging our graves with our teeth.
Balancing Omega-3s which are anti-inflammatory with Omega-6s, which are pro-inflammatory, is one of the trade secrets of fitness trainers and nutritionists. In America, the ratio averages 15.7 to 1 in favor of Omega-6 fats to Omega-3s. Of course, changing the diet is important but the way to jump-start the process is to ingest more Omega-3s!
Joint Health: Arthritic conditions are basically a reaction to the same conditions as cause problems in the cardiovascular system; A highly acidic environment that produces stiffness in the joints. If your diet is mainly composed of pro-inflammatory foods, your joints will be stiff after a night’s sleep. To keep the joints supple and able to move properly, the body’s systems are much better off dosing with an anti-inflammatory that is naturally occurring: Omega-3s.
Brain Health and Eye Function: My editor says I am running out of space so let me add just a couple of more salient points. Omega-3s are composed of a variety of long chain fatty acids. Now that is meaningless to the lay person and all it means is that the double carbon bonds are in the 3rd position. Chemically it’s important as the structure of the molecule holds all the cards.
So the two molecules that are the most important in the Omega-3 family are Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). The DHA component happens to be the material needed for maintenance of the cells in the retina of the eye and also composes about 40% of brain cells. Now do you see why it’s an important super food that our bodies do not manufacture internally but must be ingested?
Many ophthalmologists routinely recommend highly purified Omega-3s for prevention of macular degeneration. These are not highly guarded trade secrets but where do you see this kind of information in the journalistic press?
