As a father, chiropractor and wellness practitioner in San Luis Obispo County, I certainly understand that many people may not understand the importance of taking Fish Oils (otherwise known as Omega 3 fatty acids). Let me explain. Dietary fats can either enhance or impair your health depending on the type of fat. Hydrogenated oils (found in deep fried foods), margarine saturated fats such as meat and dairy can be harmful whereas essential fatty acids (like fish oils) are essential to your body and nervous system function. A recent study found that the U.S. has the highest incidence of essential fatty acid deficiency in the developed world.
Great, so why don’t I just eat fish?
This is a great question. If I knew that all the fish you buy in the store came directly from the ocean and was free of mercury, I would say go for it! Unfortunately most of the fish in stores and restaurants is farmed fish which contain little to no essential fatty acids due to the diet they are fed. The other problem is that the ocean is polluted and most fish have high levels of mercury that is toxic to your system. High quality fish oils are molecularly distilled to take out the heavy metal poisoning.
What are the Benefits of Fish Oils?
1. HEALTHY CARDIOVASCULAR FUNCTION:
Quality Fish oil plays an important role in helping to improve the condition of the heart and cardiovascular system.
The elongated omega-3 fatty acids in Quality Fish Oil positively affect the linings of the arteries. The antioxidants found in Innate Choice Fish oil help to improve muscle function and support the elasticity of blood vessels.
Additionally, Quality Fish Oil acts as a natural blood thinner that can keep platelets from sticking together and reduce the likelihood of clogged arteries. It has also been shown to balance HDL and LDL cholesterol. Quality Fish Oil is highly recommended for those that are at risk for heart disease.
2. RELIEF FROM CHRONIC JOINT PAIN
The potential benefit of Fish Oil to those suffering from chronic joint pain cannot be overstated. Extensive joint research found that the elongated omega-3 fatty acids in Fish Oil reduce pain and damage to inflamed joints and joint cartilage. Fish oil is highly recommended for those people who experience adverse side effects when taking non-steroidal and anti-inflammatory drugs.
3. RELIEVES SKIN DISORDERS
The regular consumption of omega-3 fatty acids may be beneficial to those suffering from inflammatory skin disorders. Sufferers generally register low levels of omega-3 fatty acids and have altered essential fatty acid metabolisms. Therefore, the regular consumption of Fish Oil may help alleviate the inflammation and overall severity of these conditions.
