Decades until now, studies shown that omega supplements are healthy and good for us.
This nutrient found in animals and plants is the healthiest for the heart. These are its 3 types:
- Eicosapentaenoic acid EPA
- Docosahexaenoic acid DHA
- Alpha-linoleic acid ALAThe DHA and EPA are animal sources like fish and krill, and ALA is hemp, flaxseed and plants of this kind. The omega of animals is the best one and healthier than other kinds. Also, our body gets the EPA and DHA much better than the ALA. Do not avoid the ALA but just have more animal omega based oils .
The omega supplements are available anywhere. With them, no more worries about DHA and EPA issues and high intake of such oils will give you these benefits:
As to an Italian study, those that survived heart attacks reduced the risk for another attack after taking such oils. Having them at least once a week reduces the risk by 50%.
LESS OSTEOARTHRITIS PAIN
A University of Bristol study proved that fish supplements decrease pain of this disease by 50% and this was proven by guinea pigs testing.
With this fish oil, the telomeres (DNA in every chromosome) is longer so thus longer life.
A study proved that 2 groups of people were compared; those with and without such supplements. The experts claimed that fish oil can boost cognition and brain work.
Most of us know that for healthier bones, we must get calcium as much as we can and magnesium + vitamin D too. They are not the only nutrients you need! The omega 3 also makes the bones much stronger on the long run.
A study of the European Journal of Neuroscience said the fish oil can reverse behavior that links to anxiety and even depression. This means the brain works better and in crisis handles stress better.
The other benefits of this oil are reduced triglycerides and pressure, less risk of strokes and arthritis, and low risk of prostate, colon and breast cancers.
