How to Choose the Right Omega 3?Choosing the right omega 3 fish oil supplement can seem hard to do. But if you compare the milligrams (mg) of EPA and DHA per softgel, you can find the best value. In addition, look for a fish oil supplement that is mercury free. For example, Fundamental Omega 3 might, at first glance seem more expensive, but when you compare the dosage and milligrams to other brands, you'll find you are getting exceptional value.
Role of Omega 3 Fatty Acid in CellOmega 3 essential fatty acids are enormously important in the composition and function of every cell in the body. It is the function of your cells that determines your ultimate health. The health of your cells influences your immune function, ability to heal, hormone levels, heart function, cholesterol levels, blood pressure, digestion, moods etc. Literally, the function and health of your cells determines every aspect of your health. EPA and DHA omega 3 EFAs (Essential Fatty Acids) are part of every cell membrane and are required to maintain the proper shape and flexibility of cell membranes. The flexibility of cell membranes is important for the flow of blood through blood vessels, which can decrease the risk of stroke and heart attack. This fluidity of cell membranes is also critical to ensure the proper flow of nutrients into cells as well as the proper shape of cell receptors for hormones such as insulin.
Researchers have known for years the importance of essential fatty acids for proper health. That's why they are called
essential. Do the research and you will agree that essential fatty acids should be a part of your daily health regimen.
Nerve Signal Transmission and Omega 3Essential fatty acids such as DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) are required for proper nerve signal transmission (memory, concentration, cognitive ability, muscle coordination and strength) and immune function including defense against cancer. Did you know that EPA and DHA deficiency are linked with cognitive impairments and learning and behavior disabilities such as ADHD, with depression, and with decreased cognitive ability and increased risk of Alzheimer's and dementia in the elderly.
EPA and DHA deficiency is also highly correlated with increased risk of breast, colon, and prostate cancer.
Inflammation Role in Disease & How Omega 3 Regulates InflammationEPA and DHA omega 3 essential fatty acids also play a key role in regulating inflammation via substances called prostaglandins. EPA and DHA Omega 3 fatty acids produce anti-inflammatory prostaglandins while Omega 6 fatty acids produce pro-inflammatory prostaglandins. This is why a diet that is high in Omega 6 or deficient in Omega 3 essential fatty acids creates a pro-inflammatory state within the body. Many Americans are feeling achy and tired and taking over the counter anti-inflammatory medication when all they really need to do is decrease their consumption of Omega 6 and increase Omega 3 consumption. This is very significant because inflammation is at the root of virtually all of the common chronic illnesses such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and depression as well as the autoimmune and diseases such as arthritis, Crohn's Disease, irritable bowel, psoriasis, eczema, allergies, fibromyalgia, lupus, and multiple sclerosis.
Inflammation is also a major factor in menstrual pain and/or cramping, headaches, and back and neck pain. Now you can begin to understand why the scientific community is so excited about supplementation with Omega 3's. It is because Omega 3 essential fatty acids have been shown to help people with so many different illnesses. This does not mean that a deficiency in Omega 3 EFAs is the only cause of all illness, of course not. However, it does mean that if a person is deficient in Omega 3 essential fatty acids, their cell function and consequently their wellness will be compromised and will be improved when they begin to supplement. Based on all of the research, it is imperative to supplement with Omega 3 essential fatty acids BEFORE illness develops. It is both dangerous and illogical to wait until illness develops to begin to take care of yourself or your children or your pets!
Deficiency of omega-3 essential fatty acids have been shown to be associated with:
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, psoriasis, eczema and Crohn's disease, irritable bowel syndrome, depression, aggression, dementia and schizophrenia, dyslexia, ADHD (attention-deficit-hyperactivity disorder)
Fish Oil Derived Omega-3 Fatty Acid
Helps Support Healthy CirculationThe omega-3 fatty acids that are of particular interest for cardiovascular care include EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), which are found predominantly in fish and fish oils. The basis of this heightened interest in dietary intakes of EPA and DHA comes partly from epidemiological and population studies indicating that increased consumption of fish as a source of omega-3 fatty acids is often associated with decreased mortality from cardiovascular disease. Controlled-intervention trials in humans have indicated a favorable modifying effect of dietary fish oils on various risk factors for cardiovascular disease independent of their lowering of blood cholesterol.
Flaxseed Oil Derived Omega 3
Flaxseed oil is one of the premium sources of Alpha-Linolenic Acid (Omega-3) and Linoleic Acid (Omega-6), two essential fatty acids that can't be made by the body and must be obtained from the diet. Fatty acids play a role in providing an energy source for the body. Flax oil is also a source of Lignans-phytochemicals which play a part in the well being of the body.EarthTurns.com offers pure, all natural essential fatty acids.
