Okay, this is not a pirate story, even though that title seems like it might refer to “sleeping with the fishes.” Instead, today I want to talk about living with the fishes – and omega 3 fish oil – in a healthier, happier state than you could possibly be without it.Thank you for reading this post, don't forget to subscribe!
Omega 3 fish oil is one of the major, almost top-heavy, vitamins needed for overall health of the human body. The flesh of fish is stacked full of these natural oils. If you do not eat fish “naturally,” the omega 3 fatty acids in the fish (omega 3 oils) may not be in your diet.
Many supplements tout omega 3 fatty acid benefits. But the truth is these benefits, especially the potent DHA and EPA fatty acids, happen from eating fish in a regular cycle on a regular basis. Both of these omega 3 fatty acids rotate about 30 times within the body’s cells and tissues, so that is why a daily multiple supplement is needed.
Omega 3 oils do work in tandem with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fiber. Some reports note that omega 3 fish oil can raise the serotonin level in the brain, which can combat mild depression and increase a person’s level of innate “feel-goods.”
And the list goes on. Omega 3 fatty acids, especially the DHA variety, have been proven in studies to reduce inflammation throughout the body; in other studies, to reduce the risk of colon cancer; in yet other studies, to slow down or stop the progression of Alzheimer’s.
You might be asking, “If omega 3 oils are so beneficial, why haven’t you heard about their health benefits?” I’ve heard some things.
In studies, some participants were given omega 3 fatty acid supplements inulated with vitamins C, D, and E. After three months, the supplement was taken away. Six of the 16 participants who received the supplement were still taking it! How did they know they were getting the nutrients they needed? They were given a written notice.
A far better way to provide your body with the nutrients it needs is by eating the fish naturally. Eating fish two to three times a week is a far more healthy option than the typical American diet, which consists of red meat, processed bread, snack foods, and pasta.
Omega 3 fatty acids are vital to your heart health, your brain health, and your immune system. You can enjoy a nice, fatty, baked salmon steak for dinner tonight. Go ahead and slip it in your mouth. You know you’re making a healthy choice. Go ahead and tell your family how delicious fish is and how much you appreciate their efforts.
Many people also choose to take omega 3 supplements, most in the form of fish oil capsules. Just be sure you get ones that are toxin-free. You can also get omega 3 from walnuts, flax seeds, and leafy green vegetables.
How do you know which fish oil capsules will give you the best results? I’m sure you’ve seen them. They are made of pharmaceutical-grade fish oil. They will have high levels of DHA and EPA, the two fatty acids you need for your heart and your brain.
