Do you know someone who takes fish oil pills everyday? Or have you heard your doctor mention them from time to time? More likely than not these capsules were recommended to help lower cholesterol or strengthen the heart.
But, did you know the EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil can lead to other AMAZING benefits as well?!
Take your brain for instance. Studies have shown that consuming a regular dose of omega-3 cannot only boost cognitive ability, it can also improve memory, help counteract ADHD symptoms AND potentially reduce the risk for Alzheimer’s Disease. This super nutrient has also been shown to provide joint pain relief and ease the symptoms of arthritis.
Because omega-3 is a natural anti-inflammatory nutrient, it is essential for fighting off inflammation within the body. The problem is a typical American diet revolves largely around another type of omega… omega-6.
Omega-6 is a naturally pro-inflammatory nutrient and is found in foods like poultry, most nuts and many types of oil, such as vegetable oil. All of these foods are largely consumed in our culture. Since humans cannot create their own omega-3 or omega-6 (it needs to be consumed), this leads to an unhealthy balance between the two nutrients.
In fact, studies have shown that on average Americans eat a ratio of approximately 16:1 omega-6 to omega-3. However, in order for a person’s heart, brain and joints to function their best the ratio should actually be at least 4:1. That’s where we come in!
