Omega 3 fatty acids are most beneficial among omega oils. Find out more about omega fatty acids food sources and their healing benefits.
Fish oils are one of the dietary foods, which are often recommended
by health nutritionists as a part of heart nutrition healing diet, poor
arthritis and brain conditions etc. The reason for that is because it
contains Omega 3 fatty acids, docosahexaenoic acid (DHA),
eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) all of which fight inflammations. In other
words along with other omega-containing sources of food you may
definitely consider those fatty fishes as a part of your
anti-inflammatory diet. Oily fishes produce those oils by eating various
micro algae that bare fatty acids.
Many studies found that
fish oil can fight an excessive amount of health problems such as
cardiovascular disease and some mental health issues like schizophrenia.
Omega 3 oils aid by supporting nervous system and eliminating
symptoms. Our brain is a fatty organ, which loves these good fats, in
case you forgotten.
High blood pressure is frequently related to age. Omega fish oils help to make blood thinner and keep arteries elastic and flexible. Therefore it is advised to take it as part of heart nutrition diet for elderly people and those who are at risk to poor cardiovascular health due to bad eating habits and unhealthy lifestyle. Apart from these known facts, there is one more benefit- fish oil can reduce cholesterol too.
The researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health showed that women who ate fish and fish oil 2-4 times per week reduced the risk of heart disease by a significant 30% in comparison to those women who ate fish rarely.
There are many other good sources of Omega 3 to take from. One of them are the flax seeds. I buy them milled and sprinkle on salads and other foods. Flax seed oil or flax oil (also known as linseed oil) contains omega-6, omega-9 and about 50% more Omega 3 than fish oil but without that “fishy taste”. It has potassium, magnesium, lecithin, B vitamins, zinc, fibre and protein.
are essential - they are part of every cell membrane controlling what
goes in and out of the cell – they must be in the correct balance with Omega-3’s. Therefore, in order to keep your arteries free from inflammation, reducing omega-6 oils you get from the processed foods (which in many cases are soaked with omega-6's) is important too.
Flax oil is so good and
important that it deserves to be given lots of your attention as a part
of anti-aging vascular and heart nutrition diet and of course a special
article on this site.
Omega oils in other foods I consume from time to time:
Beans, peanuts, olives, spirulina, Brazil nuts, walnuts, butternuts, spinach, soybeans. While fish is the main source, to make sure I do not miss a day without omega 3 EPA essential acids in my body I take a supplement as well. There are some good quality ones that contain this range of omega 3 fatty acids, or simply oils, on the market today.
