Essential Heart Health-Getting the
"good" fats your body needs
If you asked your physician to recommend just one supplement for you to take along with a quality multi vitamin, do you know what it would be? Chances are it would be a fish oil rich in the Omega-3s EPA and DHA.
Here's why: The two most important organs in your body -your heart and brain-can't function normally without eicosapentaenoic acid docosahexaenoic acid, commonly known as EPA and DHA. These two long-chain Omega-3 fatty acids are called "essential" because your body needs them, but cannot make them, thus they must be obtained from the foods you eat or through supplementation. Because of their significant benefits in supporting cardiovascular health, consuming effective daily levels of fish oil rich in Omega-3 fatty acids is strongly recommended by physicians and the American Heart Association. *1
Essential Fatty Acids and Women's Fertility
Omega-3 acids have been shown to help fertility by helping to regulate hormones in the body, increase cervical mucous, promote ovulation and overall improve the quality of the uterus by increasing the blood flow to the reproductive organs.
Omega 3 EFA Essential Fatty Acids help women to:
Increase the blood flow to the uterus
Reduce sensitivity to the hormone prolactin, which can suppress ovulation.
Increases egg white cervical mucus, which is needed to help the sperm reach the egg.
Helps your cycle to become normalized.
Helps improve embryo morphology. *7 or the shape or appearance of cells in the embryo
May help reduce the risk of female infertility*8 by protecting from oxidative stress
Delay ovarian aging while improving oocyte quality at advanced maternal age. *9
Helps maintain a healthy inflammatory response and reduce inflammation. *4
Higher Levels Of Vitamin D:
Another nutrient that is critically important to your long-term health, Vitamin D is commonly found in high levels in fish that are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. But as is the case with EPA and DHA, most people are deficient of Vitamin D through diet alone. Provided in the form of D3, which is the natural form of Vitamin D that is produced by your body, thus better absorbed and utilized by the body, this important nutrient helps promote strong bones and a healthy immune system. *5
Optimize Your Brain and & Joint
Fatty acids are more than heart healthy- their benefits can be seen in almost every part of your body. As one of the most scientifically and clinically studied essential nutrients, Omega-3s have gained wide recognition from physicians and health professionals as being on of the most healthful "super nutrients."
Essential Fatty Acids and Men's
For men, essential fatty acids can also make a big impact:
Fatty acids improve the circulation to the genitals, which help support the prostate and the other element needed for reproduction.
It helps lower blood pressure, which helps with erectile dysfunction.
Omega 3s are important to the production of sperm
Essential fatty acids and cholesterol are primary ingredients in sperm cell membranes.
DHA, one of the fatty acids contained in fish oil, has a significant impact on the viability and health of sperm. When there are not enough fatty acids present, cholesterol replaces the needed fatty acid in the sperm membrane. This prevents sperm from proper maturation. This, in turn, helps create more free radicals, which damage any healthy sperm that may be present.
By increasing the intake of essential fatty acids through the consumption of fish or fish oil supplements, the resulting sperm are healthier, have better motility, and the chances of a successful conception increase.
Support memory and learning. Helps the brain clean amyloid plaques, which may help prevent Alzheimer's dementia. *3
Helps lower blood pressure. Support healthy triglyceride levels and reduces cholesterol. Helps reduce blood clotting. May help reduce risk of heart attacks, strokes, and death from heart disease. *2
Bone & Joint Health
Enhances calcium absorption. Helps reduce joint pain. Helps symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis. *4
