The Benefits of Taking Fish Oil For Women

Aug 17, 2007
Are there benefits of fish oil for women? Maybe you've noticed. Women are different than men. They're smarter than us, stronger than us, endure more than we can and smell better too.

But despite all the obvious differences, they still suffer from similar health problems. They get cancer, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis and depression too. The only thing we suffer more than a woman is PMS. (My wife said this was OK to say as long as I said it lovingly.)

How you handle these health problems is up to you. One way is to wait until you have some awful degenerative disease and then seek treatment (sounds like something a man would do). The other way is to do something about it before it becomes a problem. And if you choose the second method, then yes, there are healthy benefits of fish oil for women (and men!).

Every leading cause of death for a woman has two things in common. They're degenerative and preventable. We won't quibble over their ranking. After all, would it bother you if you had the second leading cause of death and not the first? Degenerative diseases, though preventable, are not a fashion accessory.

But there's one dietary accessory you'll want to have in your nutritional wardrobe. They just happen to be the most amazing form of prevention available to you. They are the omega 3 fatty acids in fish. More and more research confirms on a daily basis the power of these simple, natural nutrients.

Studies tell us that increasing your omega 3 intake can help prevent heart disease, strokes, cancer, diabetes, depression, Alzheimer's, PMS, memory loss, dry skin and much more.

One of the main reasons why omega 3 fatty acids are so universally beneficial is because they help the body decrease and regulate inflammation - the kind you can see and the kind you can't.

Recent research indicates that all degenerative diseases begin when the body's inflammatory cycle gets out of control. And the only way it can get out of control is when you're not getting enough omega 3s in your diet.

Scientists call it an "inverse relationship." But it's really just a simple equation. The more omega 3s you get, the less risk you'll have for degenerative diseases. And to keep things simple for the men who might be reading, the fewer omega 3s you get, the greater your risk of dying from some preventable illness becomes.

See how simple that is. All you have to do to get all the healthy benefits of fish oils for women is to eat more fish, specifically oily fish that live in cold waters. They include salmon, tuna, anchovies, sardines, herring and mackerel. Find some great recipes and you're all set.

Now, prove to us guys how much smarter you are by making a commitment to eat more fish on a regular basis. And if that's too hard for you, then you should supplement your diet with pure fish oil capsules from a reputable source.
