An excellent source of Omega-3 fatty acids to help maintain better cardiovascular and cognitive health.

Omega-3 fatty acids are also often referred to as essential fatty acids (EFAs) or polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA). EFA’s make up at least 60% of the mass of our brains. These are called essential because our bodies cannot produce these from other nutrients. They must therefore be obtained from either diet or supplements. They are needed as basic elements of our cell membranes. They control the inflammatory response and, hence pain and the spread of disease. They also mediate the immune response, control hormone production and regulate nerve transmission. The ideal ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 fatty acids is 1:1. The standard North American diet, due to the over consumption of breads, cereals, eggs, poultry, nuts, vegetable oils such safflower, corn, soy and sunflower from processed foods has a ratio of between 20:1 and 30:1. This relative Omega-3 deficiency is what is believed to be the cause of numerous health problems.

Brain and Cognitive Health

Omega-3 fatty acids are critical to the structure and function of neuronal membranes. The communication between various nerves could not occur in a normal way without Omega-3 fatty acids. As a result, just about every brain condition would benefit from optimal levels of DHA and EPA.

Cardiovascular Health

It is a fairly well established fact that heart disease, especially coronary artery disease, is the end result of inflammation. Omega-3 fatty acids are anti-inflammatory so it would stand to reason that EPA and DHA would be of help in both the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease. EPA and DHA also prevent blood from being too sticky and forming arterial blockages. All those people who have been recommended to take a baby aspirin a day would do just as well to take adequate amounts of DHA and EPA.

Rheumatoid Arthritis

According to Health Canada’s Natural Health Products Directorate (NHPD), fish oil supplementation between 2,800 and 3,000 EPA + DHA per day at a ratio of 2:1 in conjunction with conventional therapy is considered efficacious for rheumatoid arthritis.

Other Major Benefit of Omega-3 Oils

Allergies, asthma, eczema, constipation and learning disabilities have all been linked to a deficiency of Omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids preserve the blood levels of vitamin D, now universally acknowledged as being one of the most important nutrients for the prevention of cancer, heart disease, inflammation of any kind, diabetes and all auto-immune diseases.
