Men's Health - Can Fish Oil Omega-3 Benefit Men's Health?

saturated fats. If you haven't heard already, you should not be eating anything that
contains trans-fat. Food manufacturers are now required to list the trans-fat content,
because it contributes to a variety of health problems and is not necessary to the
human body.

Prostatis is an inflammation of the prostate gland. It usually begins gradually and
lingers on for several weeks. Bacterial or other type of infection may or may not be
present. Symptoms include pain and, if bacterial infection is present, fever. Protecting
the prostate is an important part of men's health. Fish oil, because of its
anti-inflammatory activity, reduces the risk of prostatitis.

At birth, the prostate gland is tiny. It grows rapidly during puberty and a second
growth spurt typically occurs after the age of 40. Nine out of ten men suffer from
enlarged prostate or BPH by the time they reach the age of 85. A fish oil supplement
may reduce the risk of BPH, which is benign. Studies have shown that blood levels of
omega-3 fatty acids are lower in people with BPH and even lower in those with
prostate cancer.

Sperm Count Increase

An important aspect of young men's health, when they want to have children, is low
sperm count or low sperm motility. Although the reasons for this are unclear, it has
been shown that a fish oil supplement increases both the count and the motility of
the sperm. Many scientists hope that supplementation will reduce the need for
in-vitro fertilization, because infants born through IVF have greater health risks.

Heart Health Improved

One benefit of omega-3 fatty acids that is important to everyone is the reduced risk
of heart disease. It is relevant to men's health, because a man is more likely to suffer
from a fatal heart attack than is a woman. A fish oil supplement is beneficial to the
heart in several ways.

Clotting Risk Reduced

First, it reduces the risk of clotting. Clots can interrupt the blood flow to the heart,
causing a heart attack. Blood clots are also responsible for stroke.

Second, omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to lower total and LDL cholesterol
levels. High cholesterol, in particular, high levels of LDL cholesterol increase the risk of
the heart disease that is typically seen in older people.

Commonly referred to as hardening of the arteries, atherosclerosis occurs when LDL
cholesterol builds up on the interior portion of the arterial walls.

Men over the age of 40 are at a higher risk of heart attack. So, omega3s are
particularly beneficial for men's health, from the age of 40 on.

Low intake of fish and low circulating
levels of DHA, an omega3 fat, are
associated with prostate cancer, BPH
or enlarged prostate, prostatitis and
with fertility issues, such as low
sperm count and motility.

DHA Importance

have anti-inflammatory activity and
counter the effects of other types of
dietary fat, such as omega 6 and
