HEALTH BENEFITS OF OMEGA-3
Today nutritional science is validating more and more healthful benefits that Omega-3 can have on the mind and body. Omega-3 essential fatty acids are primarily found in fresh, cold-water fish such as mackerel, salmon and sardines. Your body can’t naturally produce Omega-3, so you must get these fatty acids from your diet. Two key fatty acids in Omega-3 are known as EPA and DHA in their long-chain forms, and today several thousand of clinical and scientific studies show that together these Omega-3 essential fatty acids support:
- Heart, Brain & Eye health
- Healthy triglyceride levels
- Joint health and mobility
- Mental clarity and balance*
- Healthy nutrition for children over 4
The body works best when Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids are combined in the right proportions. Omega-6 fatty acids are found in foods that contain corn, safflower, sunflower or soybean oils. Human diets used to have a healthy balance of Omega-6 to Omega-3, however things have changed for the worst and now diets are terribly unbalanced. Today researchers estimate that around 80% of the sources of Omega-3 have disappeared from the food sources that make up the western diet. This means that Omega-3 has rapidly become “the lost nutrient” in our diet.
Because there is evidence that people in industrialized nations have this disproportionately high intake of Omega-6 fatty acids, it is suggested that we reduce our intake of Omega-6 and increase our intake of Omega-3. Therefore, daily supplementation with Coromega and reduced intake of Omega-6 fatty acids is a great way to seek a balance, get back the lost nutrient and is one of the most important steps one can take to ensure vibrant and lasting health. Omega-3 is clearly essential to our health, and Coromega is proud to be the innovative pioneer in finding the way to deliver these vital nutrients in the most effective and beneficial way possible.
