What can Omega-3 fatty acids do for me?

What can Omega-3 fatty acids do for your health and fitness? Here's a short list...

Want to reduce your risk of a heart attack or stroke? Hundreds of studies have shown that diets rich in Omega-3 fatty acids decrease the risk of heart attacks, strokes, and abnormal heart rhythms. One study of over 20,000 physicians showed a 52% reduction in the risk of heart attacks in those who ate at least one fish meal per week compared with those who ate fish once a month or less. In particular, a high blood level of Omega-3 fatty acid seemed to provide significant protection against sudden death. Additionally, several studies have shown that eating 200 grams of fatty fish or taking six to 10 capsules of fish oil daily will lower your blood pressure.

Do you suffer from arthritis or joint pain? Patients taking Omega 3 show a significant reduction in the number of tender joints and morning stiffness, as well as an increase in grip strength. Studies have shown that patients taking fish oil supplements for rheumatoid arthritis or gout require fewer pain medications and, in fact, some are able to discontinue their anti-inflammatory treatments all together.

Concerned about diabetes? A recent study conducted by Louisiana State University found that supplementation with Omega-3 fatty acids resulted in significant improvement in insulin function in overweight individuals who are vulnerable to Type II diabetes.

Are you, or do you know anyone who is manic depressive? Researchers at Harvard University's McLean Hospital found that patients suffering from manic depression who were given Omega 3 capsules experienced a marked improvement over a four-month period.

How about asthma? Taking Omega-3 fatty acids can reduce inflammation of the airways and reduce asthma attacks. According to Donald Rudin, in his book Omega-3 Oils, allergic disorders such as asthma may be triggered by too much Omega-6 and too little Omega-3 fats in our bodies. Excessive amounts of Omega-6 cause the body to produce antibodies that cause allergic reactions. Fish oil supplements can keep the Omega-6 fats in check and decrease the inflammatory reactions associated with asthma.

Do you have kids? Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for the normal development of vision and brain function, especially in newborns and children. Studies have shown that babies given formulas supplemented with Omega-3 have better vision and score higher in skills and problem-solving tests, than babies on formulas that do not contain additional these essential fatty acids. Supplements containing Omega-3 fats have also reportedly been effective in children with ADHD as well.

Interested in preventing cancer? Omega-3 fatty acids inhibit tumor growth when injected into animals. Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to prevent cancer of the breast, colon and prostate. Omega-3 fats strengthen the immune systems and inhibit the inflammation and blood circulation of the tumors.

Omega-3 is even good for your dog. According to a study at Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine, fish oil supplements help thwart the loss of muscle mass in dogs suffering from heart disease (as well as making their coats healthy and shiny).

OK, that's enough data. What I don't understand is why, with the accumulation of the all the evidence, why isn't everyone starting their day with Omega-3? It isn't like it's painful or something. All you have to do is take a few capsules. No muss, no fuss, no sweat. Is it laziness? How much easier could it be? Is it doubt? Do you think this Omega-3 stuff is just something we've made up? If you don't trust (as insulting as that would be), then how about ABC News or CNN? Could it be that you don't know where to get it? Have you forgotten how to get to our store.

Well I don't have the answer to these questions, but I'm getting downright frustrated by this state of affairs. Here we have definitive proof of the many health benefits that result from taking fish oil capsules, and most of you still aren't bothering to take them. I've seen the sales numbers (see, I told you I was trying to sell something) and unless everyone is buying their Omega 3 somewhere else (and why would you?), there are an awful lot of regular readers who aren't taking their daily dose. If you don't want me to harp on the subject of Omega 3 every week, then do yourself a favor. Lay in a supply of capsules and start taking them every day. Give them to your husband, your wife, your kids, your dogs, your Great Aunt Ida - in fact give them to anyone you care about. Taking Omega 3 is simply one of the easiest and best things you can do to improve your overall health.

Among the omega 3, the acidic alpha-linolénique (ALA) is indispensable, it is necessary to find it in food because the organism doesn't know how to manufacture it. Two others important omega 3, the EPA (acidic eicosapentaénoïque) and the DHA (acidic docosahexaénoïque) can be synthesized in quantity very limited from the Ala.

I just joined this sweet site. I found loads of useful information here. I would also like to contribute some thing for this community. I would like to share some [url=]quick weight loss tips[/url]. If you wish to know how to lose 10 pounds in a calendar week, you are likely not seeing for a standard diet and work out plan. You can lose weight with a basic diet and work out plan, Still this requires a lot of time doing intense cardio practises and sticking to a strict diet. Here I will draft the exact steps that I took to lose 10 pounds in just a workweek.

1. Keep Distance from all fried foods for the week
2. Drink an 8oz glass of Citrus paradisi with breakfast each day. (this speeds up your metabolism)
3. Consume fair portions (stop taking when you are full)
4. If you are consuming 3 large a meals a day, eat up 5-6 smaller meals to keep your metabolism up and keep your body burning fat.
5. Do not eat anything after 9pm. Its good to eat before 9 P.M. so that our body gets proper time to burn calories before sleep.
6. Proper sleep is necessary everyday.. Not taking adequate sleep causes been verified to be a leading factor to the body storing excess fat.
7. Utilize a body/colon clean for the 7 days. This will get rid of excess weight stored just about the tummy area as well as cleanse your body of harmfull pollutants that cause you store fat and feel tired. Flush away excess pounds around the stomach area that otherwise would be hard to lose.
8. I advice you using Acai Berry Diet Pills. This one is proven to work, and you can get a free trial.
9. For those people who need to burn fat quickly, avoid alcoholic drink.

The French gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp. Bleu d'Auvergne started life as an imitation of Roquefort, using cow's milk in place of sheep's milk. Legend has it that a peasant, around 1845, decided to inject his cheese with a blue mold that he found growing on his left-over bread (the motto being, waste not, want not). And thus, the gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne was born. This French gourmet blue cheese comes from the region of Auvergne and the cheese is made from milk of Salers and Aubrac cows. The rind is very thin and so the cheese is usually wrapped in foil. The cheese is rich and creamy with a pale yellow color and scattered holes and well-defined greenish-blue veining. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 pound.

Once upon a time air travel was a great deal simpler than it is today. You called one of a few airlines that flew from your airport, the agent would tell you what flights were available for a given time, and you booked the one you wanted. Airports were always bustling places, especially during the holidays, but as long as you gave yourself adequate time, the process was usually the same. You would check your bags, go through the x-ray machine, get your boarding pass, and wait patiently at the appropriate gate. Once you got on the plane you ate the snack or meal that came with your flight and watched a movie.

In recent years travel by plane has become significantly more complicated. There are so many different configurations for flights and types of fares. Dire economic circumstances have caused airlines to raise rates and charge extra fees for everything from baggage to blankets. There are complex rules about what you can and cannot carry in your luggage. It can be very difficult to determine whether you are getting the best deal or the best services when you buy an airline ticket. The internet makes the navigation of airlines, airports, and flight itineraries easier, but, even so, be prepared to do some research if you want to find a flight at the best price.

Here is something up front that might save you time and money right off the bat. If you are traveling within the United States mainland, always look at Southwest Airlines first. Southwest is almost always the best deal you will find. However, Southwest itineraries do not appear on the major travel websites, so always go directly to the airline's website for information. Plug in your travel plans, and you will get a list of all the flights that are available. Southwest typically charges more reasonable prices than other airlines, and there are no hidden fees. The price you see is the price you get although tax and the government fee that is attached to all flights does apply. For lower prices than you can probably get anywhere else look at the "web only" fares, but keep in mind that these fares are not refundable.
