Omega-3 fatty acids are known to be essential to normal growth and health and research shows we should all be supplementing fatty acids and not just rely on diet alone.
People with circulatory problems have been shown to benefit the most from taking Omega 3 supplements. It reduces blood pressure and regular intake may reduce the risk of secondary and primary heart attacks as well as ischemic and thrombotic strokes. Not only that, but Omega 3 might also be helpful to people with depression and anxiety.
Consumers who want to take advantage of these benefits have also been warned about the potential presence of heavy metals and fat-soluble pollutants when eating oily fish such as salmon. Omega 3 Plus from The Natural Health Practice comes with ultra pure wild deep sea fish oil so you know you’re safe from ingesting anything that could harm you or your family.
Dr Marilyn Glenville advises on Weight Loss Power Foods:
Wild salmon and other fish rich in omega 3........'Omega 3 fatty acids have an anti-inflammatory effect in the body and can increase our cell’s ability to burn fat. Nuts and seeds are other good sources!'
She also adds - 'Carrots, apples, oats, and beans. These foods are good sources of fibre and “resistant starch”, which means that your body has to expend a lot of energy (calories) to break them down. Unlike foods that cause a blood sugar rush, like sweets and refined carbohydrates, sugar from these foods will only be able to drip slowly into the blood stream. The result? You feel fuller and more satisfied after eating them.'
Dr Glenville also adds 'What many women think of as symptoms connected to the menopause can actually be related to not having enough essential Omega 3 fatty acids.'
Omega 3 deficiency symptoms can include:
• Dry, lifeless hair
• Soft, easily frayed nails
• Painful joints
• Cracked skin on heels or fingertips
• Depression and mood swings
• Poor wound healing
• Dry skin
• Difficulty losing weight
• Lack of motivation
Can Omega 3 help against Alzheimer’s?
Dr Marilyn Glenville gives her latest update (Nov 2011): 'Researchers at Aberdeen University believe they may have found a major breakthrough in the battle against Alzheimer’s. They believe the disease can be fought with omega 3 oils, which can be found in seeds, nuts and oily fish, like salmon and mackerel. The researchers found that older people whose diets were high in omega 3 oils did far better in mental tests than those without the oils in their diet. The Aberdeen research adds weight to previous research earlier this year from the US which discovered that an increased intake of the omega-3 fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) may boost the production of a protein known to destroy the plaque associated with Alzheimer’s disease.
Cells from mice, rats, and humans were used by the researchers from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) to show that the DHA-induced production of the protein LR11 may cut the build-up of plaque from beta-amyloid deposits, which have been found to result in brain cell damage and the onset of Alzheimer’s. I use a fish oil supplement in the clinic (Omega 3 Plus) which has a high content of DHA (over 500mg of DHA in just two capsules) and also contains over 700mg of EPA in two capsules.'
