7 Fish Oil Benefits Proven by Research
by Michael Byrd
omega 3 benefits you should know about.
1. Less Pain and Inflammation. Omega 3 fatty acids, particularly EPA, have a very
positive effect on your inflammatory response. Through several mechanisms, they
regulate your body's inflammation cycle, which prevents and relieves painful
conditions like arthritis, prostatitis, cystitis and anything else ending in "itis."
2. Cardiovascular Health. Omega 3 fatty acids have also been proven to work
wonders for your heart and the miles and miles of arteries and veins that make up
your cardiovascular system. They help to lower cholesterol, tryglicerides, LDLs and
blood pressure, while at the same time increasing good HDL cholesterol. This adds
years to your life expectancy.
3. Protection from Stroke and Heart Attack. When plaque builds up on arterial
walls and then breaks loose, it causes what's known as a thrombosis, which is a
fancy way of saying clot. If a clot gets stuck in the brain, it causes a stroke and when
it plugs an artery, it causes a heart attack. Research shows omega 3 fatty acids
break up clots before they can cause any damage.
4. Better Brain Function and Higher Intelligence. Pregnant and nursing mothers
can have a great impact on the intelligence and happiness of their babies by
supplementing with fish oil. For adults, omega 3 improves memory, recall, reasoning
and focus. You'll swear you're getting younger and smarter.
5. Less Depression and Psychosis. Making you smarter is not all omega 3 does
for your brain. Psychiatry department researchers at the University of Sheffield, along
with many other research studies, found that omega 3 fish oil supplements
"alleviate" the symptoms of depression, bipolar and psychosis (Journal of Affective
Disorder Vol. 48(2-3);149-55).
6. Lower Incidence of Childhood Disorders. Just to show how fish oil fatty acids
leave nobody out, studies show that children (and adults) with ADD and ADHD
experience a greatly improved quality of life. And those with dyslexia, dyspraxia and
compulsive disorders have gotten a new lease on life thanks to omega 3 oils.
7. Reduction of Breast, Colon and Prostate Cancer. And finally, omega 3 fish oil
has been shown to help prevent three of the most common forms of cancer -
breast, colon and prostate. Science tells us that omega 3s accomplish this in three
ways. They stop the alteration from a normal healthy cell to a cancerous mass,
inhibiting unwanted cellular growth and causing apoptosis, or cellular death, of cancer
So you can see why knowing these benefits is the second most important thing you
can do for your health. Can you guess what number one is?
That's right! Now it's time to put your knowledge to work. Eat more cold water oily
fish and start taking good quality pure omega 3 regularly.
