Omega 3, A Medical Miracle

Feb 3, 2008
Leave your drugs in the chemist's pot if you can heal the patient with food." Hippocrates.

Lately we have all heard so much about omega 3, and its many health benefits. When I turn my radio on in the morning, there are at least 3 Omega 3 advertisements in a 1 hour period. Omega-3 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fatty acids found in certain fish tissues, and in vegetable sources. A number of years ago, I did not hear of Omega 3. Well, not to any great extend anyways. Today, Omega 3 is mentioned on radio shows and television shows. It is written about in newspapers and magazines. And as is so often quoted, boy did our moms who fed us cod liver oil know what they were doing; even if they did not recognize the exact scientific reason behind it. I research this topic with great interest. Here are some facts and figures to make you take note.

Various scientific studies have now linked omega-3 fatty acids with a reduction in the risk of developing deadly diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and most recently Alzheimer's.

And, in the anti inflammation fight, once again, Dr. Barry Sears leads the way in the science of human nutrition with his new breakthrough book, "The Anti-Inflammation Zone" in which he uncovers a new way to define wellness. The absence of silent inflammation. In this book, Dr. Sears answers critical questions: What is Silent Inflammation What causes this offender How do you know if you have it Why is it a curse to your health. How you can reduce it.

We often hear of people having heart attacks out of the blue and dying instantly. Some of these heart attacks may have been averted if certain health conditions were known beforehand. Pro self help in health care is one of the biggest advantages we can give ourselves.

But how do you know if you really need this important supplement and how would you know what you are taking is working?
The Omega 3 Profile + blood test provides the answers.
The Omega 3 Profile + provides the data you need to:
Reduce your risk of dying of a heart attack by 70%
Reduce your risk of developing heart disease by 32%
Control silent inflammation - which can lead to deadly diseases such as Alzheimer's, Cancer, ADD, and Arthritis if left uncontrolled
Increase circulation

Show you if you are getting enough omega-3's from your diet
The Omega 3 Profile + (a complete Essential Fatty Acid panel) is a specialized test offered exclusively by Your Future Health (YFH). This is the same test featured in Dr. Barry Sears' book, the Omega Rx Zone.

The Omega 3 Profile + does not require a physician's order and is strongly recommended for anyone who takes a pro-active approach to wellness. More importantly, you can positively change this bio-marker, and your future, in less than 30 days. A pre-alert today could have a dramatic impact on your future health and longevity.

There is no doubt that the omega-3 fatty acids are essential to health.
They are fundamental molecules in the structure and activity of the membranes of all cells throughout the body. They also have highly specialized functions in neurological tissues, especially the brain and retina. Because of their role in cell membranes, omgega-3 fatty acids are essential for the formation of new tissue and are therefore important for development and growth.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids (EPA/DHA) are Among the Most Powerful Nutrients Available to Help Reduce Silent Inflammation.

History has shown and scientists have found that the Eskimos of Greenland suffered very little from coronary heart disease despite a diet very high in fat. The primary source of fat in their diet came from sea mammals, which contain high amounts of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids.

The American Heart Association recommends healthy people eat omega-3 fatty acids from fish and plant sources to protect their hearts.
I came across this information while researching Omega 3. "News release, American College of Cardiology"
The inflammation-fighting effects of omega-3 fatty acids may be the key behind fish's heart-healthy benefits, according to a new study.

Dr. Barry Sears has been writing about this very topic for years.
Researchers found inflammation markers, such as C-reactive protein and others, were up to a third lower in people who ate at least 10 ounces of fish per week compared with those didn't eat fish. The more fish the people ate, especially fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids such as salmon, mackerel, and tuna, the lower their level of markers of inflammation in the bloodstream.

The omega-3s have proven physical health benefits, and now they are also demonstrating impressive results in the treatment of mental imbalance leading to anti-social behavior, learning difficulties, schizophrenia and depression.

The human brain is unique within the animal world in that it forms a greater proportion of body weight than in other species. It is also unique in its composition. Of the solid (non-water) matter in the brain 60% is fat, or lipid, and of that, polyunsaturates form the biggest component. We are now learning that diet can alter brain composition and brain function.

A fish-rich diet helps keep the mind sharp. Previous studies found that people who ate fish lowered their risk of Alzheimer's disease and stroke. Fish such as salmon and tuna that are rich in omega-3 fatty acids also have been shown to prevent heart disease.

Do you want to be around to play with your grandchildren? Go for a walk in the park? Be there for your child's graduation? Do you want to enjoy great middle age, old age? Then you need to take control of your health, your well being. Now, Today. Can Omega 3 help you achieve this? Study! Research! Read Dr. Barry Sears, and find out what he has to say.
