WE ALL NEED OMEGA 3

Why are we all omega 3 deficient?

  • Our body cannot produce this essential fatty acid. It must therefore be supplied through our diet and is only available in limited quantities.
  • Our current diet provides an excess of omega 6 in proportion to omega 3. The ideal ratio should be 1 to 3 parts of omega 6 for one part omega 3...On average; we consume 10 to 30 parts omega 6 to 1 part omega 3.
  • An excess of omega 6 rich foods inhibits the benefits of omega 3s. When consumed in excess, these substances can promote inflammation or proatherogenic
  • Omega 6 is abundant in nuts, grains, vegetable oils and all prepared foods, which contain vegetable oils.
  • The food industry places more emphasis on production and conservation than it does on quality of ingredients. For instance, meat from animals sustained with corn feed contains a disproportionate amount of omega 6 and not enough
    omega 3s which would not be the case if these animals were grass fed.
  • Our consumption of fish rich in omega 3s is still too insignificant: Salmon, tuna, mackerel, herring and sardines.
  • The solution: Fish oil supplementation with an elevated dosage of EPA and DHA
WE ALL NEED OMEGA 3

EPA for mood enhancement and to fight inflammation! DHA for nourishing the brain! DHA for mothers and babies health! EPA + DHA for healthy cardiovascular activity!

An increasing amount of epidemiological data is linking a poor omega 3 diet with cardiovascular ailments, poor mental health, dementia and Alzheimer’s, allergies, respiratory ailments, joint pain, skin troubles, numerous types of cancers, hyperactivity, and ADD, etc...

Dosage :
Read labels attentively. It is not the concentration of fish oil, which is significant, rather the dosage of omega 3’s EPA/DHA levels of the Omega 3s. For instance, 1000mg of fish oil can be broken down as 400mg of EPA and 200mg of DHA for a total of 600mg of Omega 3s, whereas another 1000mg of fish oil will only provide 180mg EPA and 120mg of DHA for a total of 300mg of Omega 3s.

  • For mood disorders and depression, daily doses of 1000 mg of EPA are recommended daily.
  • For cardiovascular ailments, daily doses of 1000 mg of EPA and DHA combined.
  • For inflammatory problems, 2000 to 3000 mg daily doses of omega 3s, with a higher EPA ratio than DHA.
  • For pregnancy and breastfeeding,1200 to 2400 mg of DHA daily
  • For memory, concentration, hyperactivity and attention deficit, 1000mg or more of DHA daily.
