What Is Omega 3 and What Are Its Benefits?

What is Omega 3, you ask?

Why it can help your brain, skin, libido, change your personality and make your hair grow back!

Just kidding on those last two, sorry!

Let’s be serious, a lot has been said about Omega 3 and I would like to contribute a guide as to what Omega 3 is and what it isn’t. What it can do and what it definitely will not do.

So first what it can do:

1) Omega 3 Can Improve Your Brain Function

Omega 3 is a long chain fatty acid that helps makes up essential parts of your brain (The parts that facilitate communication between brain cells).

There are studies that show increased intelligence in infants who’s mothers take large quantities of Omega 3. There are clinical studies that show an inverse relationship in Alzheimer’s patients and on and on. Basically it is essential for brain health.

2) Omega 3 Can Assist Your Eyesight.

About 90% of your eyes are made up of Omega 3 fatty acids, and I know many people that have seen great results from taking pure Omega 3 supplements for many different eye maladies.

3) Omega 3 Can Keep Your Heart Pumping

Not that your heart has an Omega 3 deficiency, but Omega has one very heart friendly property.

Omega counteracts Omega 6, which is also an essential fatty acid but one that we get way too much of in the average American diet. In fact Omega 6 is found in Soy Oil which is also found in almost all processed foods and makes up 30% of the calories that an average American will consume. Giving a huge imbalance of Omega 6 to Omega 3 in our bodies.

This imbalance can causes inflammation and high blood pressure. Omega 3 brings this balance back when taking in the proper amount to balance out your Omega 6 (see your doctor or Naturopath for what is right for you).

4) Omega 3 Can Soothe Your Joints

Note in the previous example that Omega 6 causes inflammation. This inflammation does not only affect your veins in heart disease but your joints as well. By bringing your body more into balance with Omega 3 you also bring down that inflammation and so help your aching joints.

These are the primary benefits of Omega 3.

Are there other benefits?

Yes! But there are mainly side benefits. Maybe it helps your heart and reduces your stress and so helps your libido because you are not stressed out all the time now. But it doesn’t suddenly make you make you more lively in the sack.

It is just an added possible benefit, but shouldn’t be taken for that benefit. Because it may or may not happen but those that I have already listed will happen (If taken in proper dosage).

In conclusion, just take Omega 3 for its main benefits and let the other benefits flow naturally.

For your Health!
