Omega 3 fatty-acids have benefits for almost every aspect of your health. In fact, there are so many health benefits to omega-3 fatty-acids, it’s hard to find an online source that lists them all! So, here’s a comprehensive list of the way Omega 3 fatty acids help you live young and age well!
Omega 3 Benefits for Your Heart & Blood Pressure
Omega 3 fatty acids can lower your blood pressure, reduce your triglycerdes (lowering “bad” cholesterol), slow the development of plaque in the arteries, and reduce your chances of heart attack or stroke. Some studies show that supplementing omega-3 can reduce the chance of sudden cardiac death in people with heart disease. Omega-3s can keep blood platelets from clumping together preventing blood clots. Additionally, omega-3s reduce the chance of abnormal heart rhythm.
Omega-3 Benefits for Your Mind & Mood
Studies show that people who take omega-3s regularly are less likely to be depressed. Already struggling? When people with depression or anxiety start taking omega-3 supplements, their symptoms improve. Of the three types of omega-3 fatty acids: ALA, EPA, and DHA, it’s EPA that seems to be most effective at fighting depression.
Pregnant women are often instructed to take DHA or feed their baby DHA-fortified formula to promote brain health and development. In fact, these omega-3s are critical for development and brain growth in infants. DHA accounts for more than one half of the fatty acids in the retina of your eye and 40% of the polyunsaturadted fatty acids in your brain –making it critical to your mental health and eye sight. In fact, studies show that infants who get enough omega-3s during pregnancy and infancy have higher intelligence, better eye sight, reduced risk of developmental and behavioral issues, and a decreased risk of ADHD, autism, and cerebral palsy.
Omega-3s Can Reduce Metabolic Issues and Symptoms
Omega-3s can help with a variety of metabolic syndrome conditions including insulin resistance and belly fat. More studies proving the connection between omega-3s and improved metabolic response, could have a significant impact on the public health crisis surrounding diabetes and related illnesses.
Omega-3s Can Fight Inflammation
Omega-3s are a fantastic defense against inflammation. Stress, injury, or infection can cause inflammation. But, prolonged periods of stress can lead to chronic inflammation that has been linked to cancer, heart disease, and other health issues. Omega-3 fatty acids reduce the production of molecules linked to inflammation like cytokines and eicosanoids.
Omega-3s are Good for Your Skin
Omega-3 fatty acids can help your skin look and feel younger. EPA & DHA both have a role in helping your cell membranes stay healthy. EPA specifically helps you manage oil production and hydration, reduces premature aging, and reduces the risk of acne.
Omega-3s Can Improve Immune Response
New research shows that omega-3s can even improve immune function. Studies dating back decades have shown that fighting inflammation can help improve immune response and also aid T cell response.
