Omega 3 Supplements
A note on Omega-3 EFA supplements from Nathan Zassman:
Along with a multi vitamin, an omega 3 essential fatty acid product from marine sources (fish, calamari, krill) is vital to good health. Omega 3 (DHA, EPA) helps lower inflammation and pain from arthritis, lowers triglycerides (improves blood flow and lowers the risk of cardiovascular disease), and also improves cognitive function. Omega 3 also helps improve your mood. Omega 3 essential fatty acids are most effective when taken with Vitamin E to prevent oxidation of the essential fats in the body.
Our best capsule omega 3 supplement is the Aviva Professional High-Potency Omega 3, with 990 mg of omega 3 in the ethyl ester form.
The Benefits of Omega 3 Fatty Acids
By Susan Keenan
Omega-3, the essential fatty acids that are found in the membranes of every cell, offer protection against certain diseases and help to reduce the negative effects of disease. Plus, they promote good health and a long life.
Primarily, Omega 3 can be obtained from the diet. Certain foods such as fortified bread, fruit juices, and fish contain Omega 3. In particular, fish such as sardines, mackerel, salmon, herring, lake trout, and albacore tune are quite rich in Omega 3. A diet high in processed food might not include enough Omega 3 to promote a healthy life.
Omega 3 fatty acids assist in the regulation of all biological functions. They promote good brain function and can help to maintain good cholesterol levels and promote a healthy heart.
Although test results are not yet definitive, Omega 3 fatty acids are thought to decrease the incidence of arrhythmias and decrease triglyceride levels. Since they are also thought to minimally lower blood pressure in a minimal way, they can be of benefit to individuals with cardiovascular disease.
People who are not getting enough Omega 3 naturally from their diet can benefit from taking Omega 3 supplements. These products are available in several different forms including softgels, liquids, and capsules.
