Go Fish! The Amazing Anti-Aging Benefits of Omega-3
Posted September 30, 2011 in Uncategorized
Patients ask all the time which supplement is most important for an anti-aging lifestyle and disease prevention. Of course, every person’s body is different, and each person should consult with a physician regarding their nutrition and supplement choices, but Omega-3 essential fatty acids in particular stand out for incredible anti-aging and disease fighting properties.
Essential fatty acids are vital for normal metabolism, but cannot be synthesized by the human body. Because of this, people need to have a diet rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and/or take supplements to maintain healthy levels in the body. Omega-3 fatty acids are found in fish such as salmon, herring, mackerel, sturgeon, and anchovies, and are also found in seaweed, flax seeds, soybeans and tofu, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, and canola oil. Certain other foods like eggs and yogurt are also now being fortified with Omega-3 fatty acids.
A large body of research supports the incredible benefits of Omega-3 fatty acids for promoting heart health. A diet rich in Omega-3s has been shown to reduce the risk of atherosclerosis, irregular heartbeat, heart attack, sudden cardiac death, and heart failure. Omega-3s have a positive effect on regulating the heart’s electrical activity, muscle tone, and plaque stabilization, and also act as a blood anticoagulant. Omega-3s reduce blood pressure, lower “bad” cholesterol levels, increase metabolism, and aid weight loss, all associated with heart health and disease prevention. Omega-3 fatty acids have been linked to an astonishing number of other health benefits.
Other potential health benefits of Omega-3 fatty acids include:
- Reduces risk of stroke and certain cancers
- Reduces cellular inflammation
- Lubricates the skin, arteries, veins and intestines
- Slows development of Alzheimer’s and other cognitive problems
- Reduces joint pain and arthritis symptoms
- Increases energy levels and concentration
- Improves sleep quality
The American Heart Association recommends including two meals of fish every week for optimal heart health, however, the American diet is typically lacking in sources of Omega-3s, so it is highly recommended that people take a daily supplement for optimal health and disease prevention.
