Omega-3 is an essential fatty acid that is critical for heart health and for reducing inflammation overall. Unfortunately, many people do not eat enough omega-3 fish (such as salmon, mackerel and sardines) to maintain a healthy level of omega-3. Recent research discovered that in spite of nutritional education about the many benefits of omega-3, 98% of the people in the study were found to be deficient in this essential fatty acid. Said another way, only 2% of those studied had adequate levels!
Supplementing with omega-3 can also help increase HDL cholesterol, your “good cholesterol.” Along with increasing your HDL, it can help to lower your triglycerides and LDL cholesterol. The number one cause of heart disease is inflammation, and because omega-3 fats are anti-inflammatory they can help reduce your risk of heart disease, in addition to helping with atherosclerosis, lower blood pressure and normalizing heart rhythms.
OMEGA-3 DOSAGE RECOMMENDATIONS
We find that most people need about 3,000 mg of omega-3 daily (one capsule with each meal is a good start). Some individuals dealing with aggressive diseases or health conditions (heart disease, asthma, arthritis, diabetes, Crohn’s or Alzheimer’s for instance) may benefit from supplementing with more.
