Omega 3 is a rare nutrient in providing so many health benefits from one compound. Much noise is made of the benefits of it for heart conditions, yet so many more benefits have been studied and proven which rarely get a mention.
PHD’s Omega 3 capsules contain high concentrations of EPA and DHA – the two most important oils for human health. Medical professionals around the world recommend everyone should take a 300mg dose of combined EPA and DHA daily. However, for those with heart conditions, depression or anxiety higher doses are recommended.
Both EPA and DHA are readily available in oily fish, but taking supplements rich in EPA and DHA is universally recommended.
The best-known benefit of taking Omega 3 is to reduce the likelihood of developing heart conditions. There are shelves filled with studies and research showing the benefits of taking Omega 3 to lower your chances of developing heart problems. This is especially true of people who have high triglycerides – a major risk factor linked to heart disease.
It has also been shown in helping lower cholesterol levels. It acts by raising your HDL (good cholesterol) levels, whilst lowering your LDL (bad cholesterol) levels, helping you keep a healthier heart.
Studies conducted in 2010 in the USA clearly indicated the benefits of taking Omega 3 to lower blood pressure, reducing your risk of heart problems.
There is mounting evidence showing the benefits of taking it to prevent a wide range of mental health problems developing and preventing the decline of mental capabilities. Depression and anxiety are two conditions which seem significantly reduced in those whose diets contain high levels of EPA and DHA.
Inflammation is the root cause of many diseases. Research has shown Omega 3 rich diets help reduce the risks of inflammation, so reducing the occurrence of many common illnesses.
Studies have also shown it can help you absorb higher levels of calcium from your gut, so helping to keep bones stronger – especially as you age. This combined with the anti-inflammatory action of Omega 3 has been shown to help ease joint pain and stiffness.
Sleep is vital for you to remain healthy and research has shown people with diets deficient in Omega 3 have trouble sleeping. Exactly how Omega 3 can improve sleep is not fully understood; but it is certainly known having plenty of Omega 3 in your body will help you sleep.
Your retinas have high concentrations of DHA. The American National Eye Institute recommends taking Omega 3 supplements rich in EPA and DHA for good retinal health; protect the eyes from disease; and to help prevent macular degeneration.
