Fish Oil is a real health wonder and it seems like more and more info is being released about it every month. Recently I saw a report about how 6 grams a day was reducing arthritis in elderly people. In some cases fish oil was almost curing the arthritis.
With myself I used to get some mild eczema which was a result of the natural oils of the skin drying out. It causes a mild rash which can become quite irritating. Once I started taking fish oil my eczema is virtually cured. The fish oil has made a massive difference and I take 3 grams a day, every day of my life. Sometimes during winter I still get a little case of the eczema but it has never come back the way it used to. The fish oil has replentished the oils in my skin and has restored it’s natural balance.
Fish oil is derived from the tissues of oily fish. It is recommended for a healthy diet because it contains the omega-3 fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). EPA and DHA are precursors to eicosanoids that reduce inflammation throughout the body.
Some experts believe that taking fish oil can help regulate cholesterol in the body, because fish oil has high levels of omega-3 fatty acids. On average, our national diet is very high in omega-6 acids from our large consumption of red meat and vegetarian products. We are still lacking in omega-3 fatty acids as we generally do not consume a high level of seafoods.
Fish Oil Affects Neuronal Growth
Studies conducted on prisoners in England showed a drop in assault rates where the inmates were fed seafoods high in omega-3 fatty acids. The higher consumption of these fatty acids corresponded with a drop in the assault rates compared with the prisoners that were not fed seafood.
Another Finnish study found that prisoners who were convicted of violence had lower levels of omega–3 fatty acids than prisoners convicted of nonviolent offences.
It’s Amazing What Fish Oil Can Do For Your Health and Your Body
It was suggested that these kinds of fatty acids are responsible for the neuronal growth of the frontal cortex of the brain which, it is further alleged, is the seat of personal behaviour.
Studies published in 2004 and 2009 have suggested that fish oil may reduce the risk of depression, and importantly, suicide risk. One such study took blood samples of 100 suicide-attempt patients and compared the blood samples to those of controls and found that levels of EPA were significantly lower in the washed red blood cells of the suicide-attempt patients.
Fish Oil Is Brain Food
These studies show that fish oil really is brain food. Fish oil is also great for the brain development in babies from gestation right through to early infancy.
Since 70% of brain development occurs while your baby is in the womb, what you eat in pregnancy is really important. Essential fatty acids such as DHA are vital for brain and eye development in babies, especially during the last three months of pregnancy and the first 18 months of life.
The best dietary sources of DHA include fatty fish like tuna and salmon, fish oil and liver. DHA is abundant in breastmilk, and one recent study even showed that mothers with high levels of DHA had babies with more regular sleep patterns. So be sure to eat plenty of DHA-rich foods while breastfeeding.
Fish Oil – Cures All
It’s amazing what fish oil can do for your health and your body. If you haven’t tried this stuff before, try it. If you have any skin problems or inflammation in the body… try fish oil. As far a doses go, try one capsule 3 times a day with food. That’s about 3 grams.
See how you feel after two weeks, I believe you will feel the difference.
