Omega-3 fatty acids are one of the good fats. They may help lower the risk of heart disease, depression, dementia, and arthritis. Unfortunately, your body can’t produce them. You must eat them or take a supplement. There are three types of omega-3 fatty acids: ALA, EPA (best at fighting depression), and DHA.
Omega-3 fatty acids help your heart in several ways. They curb inflammation in the blood vessels (and the rest of your body). At higher doses, they also make abnormal heart rhythms less likely and lower your level of blood fats called triglycerides. They help reduce blood pressure levels and help raise “good” HDL cholesterol levels. They fight blood clots and plaque in your arteries.
Omega-3s DHA and EPA can lower your triglycerides, a blood fat that’s linked to heart disease. You can also bring down triglyceride levels by exercising, drinking less alcohol, and cutting back on sweets and processed carbs like white bread and white rice. Also, DHA is a major component of the structure of the retina of your eye, so consumption of enough Omega-3 can help reduce the risk of macular degeneration which is a leading cause of eye damage and blindness.
Omega-3s can help lower blood pressure. One way is to replace red meat with fish during some meals. You should also avoid salty fish, such as smoked salmon. If you have high blood pressure, we recommend that you limit the amount of salt that you are taking in.
Studies suggest omega-3s can curb joint pain and stiffness in people with rheumatoid arthritis. Some additional studies suggest omega-3 supplements may ease the symptoms of ADHD. Omega-3 is important in brain development and function.
And for the women reading this, Omega-3 fatty acids can even curb menstrual pain because of its anti-inflammatory properties, in fact, it may even be more effective than ibuprofen and won’t cause damage to your stomach lining, liver, or kidneys the way that both ibuprofen and other NSAIDs have been known to do.
Overview and Summary:
Omega-3’s are essential fats that the body can’t make naturally and must come from food. Foods high in Omega-3 include fish, vegetable oils, nuts (especially walnuts), flax seeds, flaxseed oil, and leafy vegetables. If you are lacking in these food groups, a supplement is not only highly beneficial as you can see from the information above, but truly recommended. For more information and help with supplemental guidance, we recommend meeting with our in-house nutritionist, Courtney. She will give you more in-depth information and also help you with discovering the best ways to fill in your nutritional gaps! And for ordering, feel free to visit www.impulsetrainingsupplements.com
