  Omega 3 Fish Oil Fatty Acids


Omega-3 Fish Oil Concentrate essential fatty acids can reduce your cholesterol levels, decrease arthritis inflammation and reduce the incidence of heart attacks. Fish oil can reduce sudden cardiac death by 50% -80%.

You only need 3-4 grams per day to provide these protective benefits.

Essential Fatty Acids lift depression, elevate mood, reduce stress and hyperactivity, increase focus, concentration and learning.

Omega 3 Fish Oil Fatty Acids reduce inflammation, dilate blood vessels, reduce blood clotting, lower harmful LDL cholesterol levels and raise beneficial HDL cholesterol levels.

SOME BENEFITS OF OMEGA 3 FISH OIL FATTY ACIDS:

  • Brain food
    - study shows improvement for Alzheimer's patients

  • Treat bipolar disorder
    - decrease age related memory loss

  • Lowers risk of Alzheimer's disease
    - recommended to replenish DHA during pregnancy

  • Good for the heart
    - reduce risk of heart attacks

  • Relief of rheumatoid arthritis pain
    - reduce inflammation

  • Can slow or reduce risk of cancer
    - said to lower risk of breast cancer
    - improve quality of life for terminally ill cancer patients.

A single 1,000-milligram capsule of Omega 3 offers about the same amount of two valuable fatty acids as four ounces of salmon, and in about the same ratio. Omega-3 fatty acids are well-known ingredients in many fish, and are most abundant in oily species such as salmon and tuna. Cardiologists recommend a diet rich in oily fish because omega-3 fatty acids are good for the circulatory system. And what's good for the heart is also good for the brain, said Dr. Bruce Cohen, president and psychiatrist-in-chief at McLean Hospital.

"If you study people around the world and take people of similar background, the group eating more fish has a lower rate of heart disease and depressive illnesses," Cohen said.

There is considerable evidence that fish oil consumption can delay or reduce tumor development in breast cancer. Studies have also shown that a high blood level of omega-3 fatty acids combined with a low level of omega-6 acids reduces the risk of developing breast, colon and prostate cancer and may help prevent a broad range of diseases. (The Journal of Cell Biology - June 2002)

Daily supplementation with as little as 2.5 grams of fish oils has been found effective in preventing the progression from benign polyps to colon cancer and Korean researchers recently reported that prostate cancer patients have low blood levels of omega-3 fatty acids.

OMEGA 3 IMPROVES MOOD AND HELPS DEPRESSION


Fish oil may prevent, or be a potent treatment for Depression. In an Oct. 18, 2002 report, researchers stated that taking a daily fish- oil supplement may boost the effectiveness -- or even replace -- antidepressants for treating depression in some people.

Dr. Andrew Stoll of Harvard gave 30 people with bipolar illness (manic-depression) omega-3 supplements or a placebo pill and followed them over time. He found significant improvement in the groups taking omega-3. Israeli researchers conducted a study that added omega-3 supplements to the antidepressant regimen in patients who were not getting any better. Within three weeks, those patients reported significant benefits. In another study, 70 percent of patients reduced their symptoms by half.

"There is something very appealing about the growing evidence," said Dr. Fred Goodwin, of George Washington University. He has been prescribing it to patients with bipolar illness for years.

OMEGA 3 REDUCES ARTHRITIS PAIN


Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid which is found in fish oil may prevent or decrease rheumatoid arthritis: According to the Institute of Human Nutrition, University of Southampton, a number of double-blind, placebo-controlled trials of gamma-linolenic acid and fish oil in rheumatoid arthritis have shown significant improvements in a variety of clinical outcomes.

OMEGA 3 IMPROVES IMMUNE FUNCTION


Omega-3 Fatty Acids boostS immune function. According to the Proc Nutrition Society, fatty acids from fish oils increase the survival and reduce disease severity in spontaneous autoantibody mediated disease.

OMEGA 3 HELPS DIABETES


Omega-3 fatty acids may help ward Off Diabetes. According to a Reuters Health report, omega-3 fatty acids appear to improve insulin function in overweight individuals who are vulnerable to type 2 diabetes. 3 months of daily supplementation with DHA produced a "clinically significant" improvement in insulin sensitivity in overweight study participants, according to Dr. Yvonne Denkins, a nutrition researcher at the Pennington Biomedical Research Institute.

OMEGA 3 IMPROVES MEMORY AND BRAIN EFFICIENCY


Researchers took 26 normal adult volunteers and gave them a test that determined their p300(brain waves) rate. Immediately after taking the test, they were given supplements of either EPA or DHA (both are derivatives of Omega-3 from fish). Two hours later, their brain waves were measured, and this time the p300 rate was significantly faster in the group given the DHA supplements.

OMEGA 3 REDUCES HEART ATTACK RISK


Omega-3 Fatty Acids appear to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke, and to improve heart health in general. Researchers at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center report that docosapentaenoic acid (DPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), a primary component of Omega-3's, provide significant protection against the development of coronary heart disease (CHD). Their study involved over 6,000 middle-aged men.

The benefits on heart health led the American Heart Association in 2002, to recommend a diet rich in fish oil. In a nurses study at Harvard, 84,688 women were followed from 1980 to 1994, and researchers documented the foods they ate, finding that women who ate fish once a week had a 34 percent lower incidence of death from heart disease and a 25 percent lower incidence of non-fatal heart attacks. Omega-3 fish oil was identified as the reason.

In another study published in 1999, Italian researchers studied 11,000 heart attack survivors who were given one gram of fish oil daily for 3.5 years. The rate of sudden cardiac death and overall cardiac mortality was lower in those taking the fish oil compared to those who did not.

Researchers in Boston studied elderly male twins and found that those who smoke or have a history of smoking had an increased risk of developing age-related macular degeneration as compared to those who never smoked. At the same time, those who ate more fish and had diets with higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids reduced their risk of this blinding disease.

What good is a healthy body if the brain isn't functioning properly? Children with learning disabilities, ie. ADD, ADHD and behavior problems, have lower levels - deficiencies - in essential fatty acids.

Question: School officials say my 9-year-old daughter may have attention deficit disorder because the teacher says she can't stay focused.

They are putting her through a battery of tests and, in the meantime, have suggested giving her coffee and Mountain Dew for the caffeine. She is not hyper, nor does she have trouble sleeping, and I am concerned that loading her up with caffeine could cause problems. Is there any other way to help her avoid distraction?

Answer: Diagnosing attention deficit disorder can be complicated. We have found little data to support the use of caffeine for the symptoms of ADD. Coffee or high doses of caffeine can cause stomach upset, nausea, nervousness and insomnia and might bring on involuntary muscle twitches or tics, in some children. Although stimulants such as amphetamine and methylphenidate (Ritalin) can be helpful, not every child needs such powerful medication. Altering the environment to suit the individual's natural learning style can be valuable at home and at school.

Some physicians report that adding essential fatty acids (EFAs) to the diet in the form of flaxseed oil, cold-water fish or black-currant oil might also be beneficial.

Of the fifty or so known nutrients vital for survival, there are two essential fatty acids: Omega-3, and Omega-6. Our bodies are unable to produce these fatty acids and they must be obtained from food or supplements. Essential Fatty Acids are necessary for normal brain function, cell membrane formation, metabolism of cholesterol and triglycerides, and energy production on a cellular level. An insufficiency of Omega 3 oils in the diet has been linked to depression and Alzheimer's Disease.

A new Canadian study suggests a diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids, found in fish such as salmon and sardines, and in fish-oil capsules, can help keep Alzheimer's disease at bay.

Adding Omega 3 to an already healthy diet, while reducing harmful fatty acids (which are abundant in plant seed cooking oils � i.e. corn, safflower, sunflower seed oils) improved the ratios of the two types of fatty acids, therefore, decreasing the risk of sudden death.

Additional Information


Daily supplements of a fatty acid found in fish oil halves the risk of sudden death in heart attack survivors, researchers report in Circulation: Journal of the American Heart Association (April 2002). Previous research has found that eating oily fish such as tuna and salmon can reduce the risk of sudden cardiac death caused by a particular type of irregular heartbeat. This study suggests fish oil supplements, rather than dietary fish oil, could be a therapy without side effects for heart patients.

The finding is from an analysis of data from the GISSI-Prevenzione trial. That study found that 1 gram daily of Omega 3 significantly reduced the risk of death overall and sudden death in people who had heart attacks.

The benefits were not due to changes in cholesterol levels or by reducing potentially fatal blood clotting.

�The risk of death, and sudden death, is higher in the first months after a heart attack. It is exactly in this period that the effect on sudden death was noted.�

The analysis also shows that the lifesaving benefit of Omega 3 is likely due to reducing episodes of potentially fatal irregular heartbeats, called arrhythmias.

About 250,000 people in the United States die each year from coronary heart disease without reaching the hospital alive. Most of these deaths are probably due to sudden death caused by an arrhythmia.

�This study is important because there is no really effective therapy for arrhythmias,� says Alexander Leaf, M.D., professor of clinical medicine at Harvard Medical School in Boston, who wrote an accompanying editorial about the new findings.
