Fish Oil

Fish oil is nothing less than essential.

The supplement industry rakes in millions upon millions of dollars each year for products that often times don't work at all. With all the hype, it's easy to brush off any supplement that rises to prominence in the marketplace. Fish oil is the exception.

The Benefits of fish oil consumption are numerous, but they include, among other things:

1.)They play a crucial role in the prevention of atherosclerosis, heart attack, depression, and cancer.

2.) Lead to a significant decrease in age-related memory loss and cognitive function impairment and a lower risk of developing Alzheimer's disease.

3.) Prevent and may help to ameliorate or reverse atherosclerosis, angina, heart attack, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias, stroke, and peripheral vascular disease.

4.)Supplementation with 3.3 grams/day of fish oil markedly reduces breathing difficulties and other symptoms in asthma patients.

These benefits are due to the presence of the Essential Fatty Acids (EFA's) omega-3 EFA and omega-6 EFA. The over-abundance of omega-6's in the modern diet are the cause of many modern diseases. By increasing your omega-3 consumption through fish oil supplementation and decreasing your consumption of omega-6's through processed vegetable oils, you will be going a long way in preventing everything from heart disease to cancer.
