Omega-3

We have promoted taking omega 3 oils, fish oil or flax oil, for better health for years.  The benefits of both foods are amazing!  Now scientific research is proving us right.  Two different news releases last week were very exciting.

            One research study proved that fish oil taken daily will reduce your chance of heart attack by 50%!  What else do you know of that will do that?  Did you know that if you lay your blood vessels end to end they would extend for 60,000 miles, enough to circle the earth more than two times.  Some blood vessels are no thicker than a hair.  When they become inflamed or congested your heart has to work much harder.

            Omega three oils will reduce inflammation, decrease heart arrhythmias, lower triglycerides, decrease growth of plaque, and slightly lowers blood pressure, NATURALLY.  You should eat fish at least three times a week, but now we have the scare of mercury in our larger fish.  An alternative is to take fish oil or fish oil capsules from a reliable source.  For heart disease you should be taking 2,000-3,000 mg/day, depending on what your practitioner recommends.

            The second study that is being conducted right now at OU is proving that DHA, which is one of the natural healers in fish oil, is killing cancer cells.  Their study is not yet complete, but they are very excited about this totally non-toxic remedy for cancer patients.

            DHA is also highly recommended for the developing fetus and the newborn to one year old.  DHA from either plant or fish source is so vital to the developing brain and eyes they believe it increases the I.Q. of the baby, as well as improve eyesight.

            What amazing foods fish and flax seeds are to help you achieve Better Health, Naturally.
