Understanding the benefits of omega 3 (and, more specifically, what Superior Omega 3 can do for you!) is crucial for upgrading your long-term health and general betterment.
Why? Well, although that one “magic pill” we all look for to enhance every organ and system in our bodies doesn’t exist, omega 3 is the closest supplement there is–and its benefits are seemingly endless!
Today, we here at Solutions Rx detail all you need to know about omega 3, including its history in the health world and how we recommend incorporating it into your lifestyle.
Let’s dive right in:
What is the Big Deal About Omega 3?
Fish oil–more commonly known as omega 3–is loaded with nutrient-rich fatty acids that have a positive impact on the body’s metabolic rate, heart and mental health, and inflammation levels.
- For nearly 20 years, the American Heart Association has recommended omega 3 fatty acids for people with or at risk of coronary heart disease
- The National Institutes of Health have overseen several trials of fish oil supplements, the participants of which saw a decline in inflammation and less need for anti-inflammatory prescription medications
- Recent studies have shown that taking fish oil consistently for over 12 weeks bumped metabolic rates up by 14%, with 185 extra calories being burned a day
Fish oil is a supplemental powerhouse because it can’t be manufactured organically in the body: it contains two omega 3s, DHA and EPA, both of which are key to regulating our immune, skin, and endocrine systems. In fact, many people don’t realize that our skin actually contains a multitude of omega 3 fatty acids–and when those fatty acids become depleted, it can have a knock-on impact on the health and appearance of your skin.
How Omega 3 Benefits Your Body and Mind
Due to omega 3’s wide-ranging benefits, it should come as no surprise that, while everyone is encouraged to keep up a regimen of supplementing with omega 3, there are certain demographics who will see instantaneous benefits from its inclusion.
The first demographic is those with autoimmune diseases such as, but not limited to, Crohn’s, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, and multiple sclerosis. Because these diseases are linked to having a high level of chronic inflammation in the body, omega 3 can combat this inflammation and soothe autoimmune symptoms.
Next is those with fatty liver disease. If left untreated, this disease can lead to myriad problems, like cancer or even failure of the liver. By decreasing inflammation in this organ with routine omega 3 intake, the functionality of the liver can be improved over time and symptoms can be mitigated. This extends to those with high blood pressure, a history of blood clots, and high cholesterol.
Even those with acne, hair loss, depression, and aging bones and joints can feel marked improvements in their health when continuously supplementing fish oil.
How to Incorporate Fish Oil Into Your Day-to-Day
When supplementing with fish oil, it’s vital to purchase a formulation that features a triglyceride base vs. an ethyl-ester base in order to reap the maximum anti-inflammation benefits.
Here at Solutions Rx, we offer both types of formulations–including one with a vitamin D infusion for those who want to combine their omega 3 and vitamin D supplements.
When taking fish oil, consume it alongside a meal rich in dietary fat to bolster absorption. Fish oil capsules can be taken either once a day or can be taken at alternate times if desired.
