Omega-3 Fatty Acids Boost Your Heart And Joint Health

Powerful anti-inflammatory agents known as omega-3 fatty acids can help reduce the symptoms associated with joint pain, high cholesterol levels, high blood pressure, poor memory and mood swings. In fact, hundreds of scientific studies have clinically proven the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids found in all-natural krill oil. Here are just a few of the results…

Canadian researchers from the University of Montreal found that omega-3s derived from krill oil significantly reduced several key risk factors for high cholesterol. In fact, the results showed a:

  • Reduction in total cholesterol levels by 13 percent
  • Decrease in “bad” low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol by 32 percent
  • Deduction of triglycerides by 11 percent
  • Increase in “good” high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol by 44 percent

The Mayo Clinic Proceeding reports three large controlled trials of 32,000 people who received either omega-3 fatty acid supplements with docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) or a placebo. The results? A reduction of cardiovascular problems by as much as 45 percent for those taking omega-3s.

In Japan, the incidence of cerebral brain problems has been found to be inversely proportional to blood levels of omega-3s. This means the higher the omega-3s, the less risk of brain problems. And the levels of omega-3s in the Japanese are generally 10 times higher than in Americans, thanks to a diet high in fish and krill.

A review published by the United States Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) evaluated the impact of omega-3 fats on age-related memory loss. The report found that consuming omega-3 fats contributed to a significant reduction in age-related memory loss.

The New England Journal of Medicine published the results of a 20-year Danish study of 852 middle-aged men who were free of heart problems. One group ate as little as 1 ounce of fish a day and the other group consumed no fish. The results? Death from heart problems was 50 percent lower among the fish eaters.

In an Oregon Health Services Study, 20 patients with abnormally high triglycerides ate a diet high in omega-3 fish oils. Triglycerides fell 79 percent and total cholesterol plummeted 45 percent.

Boosting your intake of healthy omega-3 fats can help soothe your minor joint aches… promote healthy blood sugar balance… promote healthy heart and brain function… improve memory and “senior moments”… support healthy cholesterol levels… promote healthy blood pressure… relieve premenstrual syndrome (PMS) symptoms… and promote healthy mood levels. Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for your diet and should be supplemented since your body doesn’t produce them on its own.
