I was reading some of my email newsletters today and I found this article written by Dr Bill. You can visit Dr. Bill here. I am not affiliated with Dr. Bill, I just like the health tips he provides.
1) Fish oil can help you fight the blues, or beat depression.
Scientists at the University of Montreal just published the largest
study yet on fish oil’s effect on depression. They showed that when
patients with moderate depression took 1,200 mg of a quality fish
oil, their depression improved significantly. The scientists believe
that the omega-3’s in fish oil improve the function of some
chemicals (neurotransmitters) in the brain.
2) Omega-3’s reduce joint pain and inflammation.
If you take aspirin, or ibuprofen, to reduce joint pain, you should
add fish oil to your regimen. The newest studies show that you can
reduce pain meds, when you take fish oil. The genius lads at Harvard
Medical School have shown that the body converts omega-3 fatty acids
into joint protective compounds. These compounds are called
resolvins, which become 10,000 times stronger than the original
3) Fish oil helps buffet molesters lose weight.
Having lost about 60 pounds last year, I know a bit about this,
personally. There are two types of polyunsaturated fats, omega-3’s
and omega-6’s. Both are essential, meaning the body can’t
manufacture them, so you must ingest them in your diet. Omega-3 is
not stored as body fat, because it gets put to work immediately…
it’s burned as energy, so no weight gains with omega-3’s.
Omega-6 fatty acids are also essential fats, but are present in
overwhelming amounts in the Western diet, especially in fast foods,
which tend to hang around in fat deposits, all over your body. Look
for omega-6 fatty acids on labels and don’t use the stuff. The
biggest offenders are corn oil, soy oil, sunflower oil, and
safflower oil. Switch to olive oil instead, an omega-9, or
4) Fish Oil Reduces Tryglycerides.
Heart health is at the top of the food chain, regarding fish oil.
Most health practitioners focus on cholesterol, which we are finding
out may not be the villain we have been led to believe. But high
trigylcerides result in high cholesterol, so controlling the
triglycerides also controls the levels of total cholesterol.
5) Fish Oil helps with blood pressure.
Not enough people take fish oil to help with blood pressure. Johns
Hopkins School of Medicine reviewed 17 studies, 11 of which gave
fish oil to folks with normal blood pressure and 7 of which gave
fish oil to folks with high blood pressure. In both groups, they
noticed a sharp decrease in systolic and diastolic blood pressures.
