Fish Oil Benefits

Because of many newly emergent diseases in the previous years, more and more people become health conscious and are even more willing to spend on medical insurance and health care services. Many are on the look for food supplements that they think can help improve their health. It is easy to succeed in this venture, but finding the perfect supplement that can provide safe, positive results and are relatively cheap and available can be quite a strain for consumers.

One very common and popularly favored food supplement is omega 3 fish oil. Sine 1930s, it has been known to be a vital substance for proper growth and health. However, most of its health benefits were discovered in 1970s and was then popularized in the early 1990s. It has been proven that regular intake of omega 3 fish oil could reduce blood pressure, arthrosclerosis and heart rate. Studies have also been conducted about the supposed effects of the supplement on coronary heart disease although further studies must be made to prove this claim. Omega 3 was first associated with human health with a study about the Inuit or Eskimo people of Greenland. It was found out that even though these people’s diet includes very high fat content (whale, seal and salmon meat) they are very healthy and do not suffer from diseases that are otherwise caused by over consumption of fat. Ever since, continued studies are carried out to find other health benefits from the substance. Some of these additional researches suggest that this food supplement may help enhance or even cure conditions like Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, alcoholism, bipolar disease, depression and arthritis.

Experts also advice that we should follow a balanced diet that includes plenty of fruits and vegetables, s well as fish fish in omega-3 fatty acids. Your total cholesterol should be kept under 200 milligrams per deciliter of blood. Your low-density lipoprotein or LDL (the so-called ‘bad cholesterol’), should be kept below 100, while high-density lipoprotein or HDL (the ‘good’ cholesterol), should be at least 40. Diet, exercise, and medication can help control cholesterol levels. Indeed, if you follow a plan and take your medication, heart disease does not have to be a death sentence. More importantly, prevention is better than cure. AS early as now, it is recommended to get the supervised exercise, stress management and lifestyle adjustments to help you live even at the prime of your life. Even at the onset of aging, you are rest assured that you have the protecion of the right lifetime partner.
