Fish oil Pregnancy, Kids, Adults: Omega 3 Fatty Acids are Better Health for Everyone
The benefits of fish oil for pregnancy, pure DHA for kids - associated with behavior and learning - and omega-3 fatty acids for heart or joint health for adults are now part of our lives and working well for people.
If you read about health, watch health segments on television or listen on the radio, you have heard about omega 3 fatty acids or fish oil. If not, be sure to click on the link below and hear what Dr. Oz has to say because he will 'catch you up'!
The television segment that Dr. Oz did on omega fatty acids was excellent. Most doctors talk about treating illness and disease, although lately more of them are talking about fish oil for building better health. I follow Dr. Oz because he really hits us hard with prevention and taking fish oil is something very good that we can do for ourselves.
I have heard for years about the omega-3 and omega-6 imbalance in our bodies. This is due to the foods that we eat and is important because it can also determine how we feel and the state of our health. Omega-6 fats contribute to inflammation that can result in anything from arthritis to heart disease and many other diseases.
Omega-3 fatty acids help reduce inflammation in our bodies. Fish oil can make our joints feel better and a whole lot more. Dr. Oz says that we can't get too much Omega-3's and we don't need to worry about getting any more omega-6 fats because our food provides more than enough of those. We want our body's ratio to be no more than 2 to 1, omega-6 to omega-3 (1 to 1 is even better) and we will feel the difference.
The problem with getting enough omega-3 fatty acids every day is that most of us don't eat enough fish every day and other sources of food can increase our calories too much if we eat in excess. That would be true for walnuts. I love walnuts but my weight goals might be in trouble if I ate walnuts all day long!
In order to get a good supply of fish oil every day, most of us need to supplement. Fish oil when consumed in supplement form is something easy that we can do every day. Leave that bottle of fish oil out on your counter. Don't miss your daily serving and within a short time I would be surprised if you tell me anything other than you feel enough of a difference that you will stay faithful!
It is important to find a high quality fish oil brand because there are different grades of fish oil and the manufacturing process differs from brand to brand. Since food supplements are not regulated, it is essential to find a brand you trust and that uses pure, quality ingredients.
What you put in your body will determine what you get back in terms of health. Another issue is the odor. People have been turned off to supplements that leave a strong fish odor in your mouth. Finding a better source of fish oil is a solution to this problem as well.
EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids are well studied for helping reduce heart disease, helping retain normal blood pressure, and supporting healthy joint function, vision and brain.
Here is the link to the Dr. Oz show on omega fatty acids. You will open to the video of the first part. Under that video are links to the other 3 sections - there are 4 short videos. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
