Why Take Omega-3 Fatty Acids?

By Wednesday, 27 February 2019 04:23 PM Current | Bio | Archive

Many studies support the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids. For patients recovering from a heart attack, omega-3 fatty acids aid in the healing process by helping with cardiac remodeling and enabling the heart to contract better.

Omega-3 fatty acids also manage the fibrosis in the region and impact the reduction of biomarkers for inflammation.

Furthermore, according to the Journal of the American Medicine Association, omega-3 fatty acids also reduce the risk for cardiovascular disease.

Omega-3 fatty acids are also known to promote healthy body composition, improving lean mass and decreasing fat mass in healthy adults.

In studies, fish oil was shown to cause weight reduction in mice, and also appeared to stop the animals from gaining weight when given free access to food.

Additionally, omega-3 concentrates reduced the number of fat cells, especially in the abdominal region. Research shows that concentrated fish oil increased the oxidation of fat by activating genes that break down fat in the mitochondria and peroxisomes.

These breakthroughs have allowed for the development of new therapies for obesity and other metabolism diseases.

Those suffering from chronic pain have also sought relief in fish oil supplements. Studies suggest that daily consumption of omega-3s may help support healthy inflammatory pathways, thereby alleviating symptoms associated with inflammation.

Another study showed that fish oil also reduced the need for non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) in 59 percent of patients with neck and low-back pain.

Other known benefits of taking fish oil include: decreasing the risk of depression and anxiety; improving eye health; promoting brain health during pregnancy; supporting focus and memory; stabilizing healthy blood sugar levels; supporting a healthy immune response; improving bone and joint health; improving sleep; and supporting skin health.
