Decades ago, researchers observed that fish-eating populations had very low rates of heart diseases. These low rates were discovered to be partially due to omega-3 intake. Since then, omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to have a plenitude of health benefits. The list goes on and on, but we only have room for so much! Here are a few of the endless reasons why omega-3 is key to optimal health:
Omega-3 can reduce triglycerides, blood pressure, and artery-plaque buildup, while preventing blood clot formation.
When we do not have enough DHA, a type of omega-3, in our system, vision problems can occur. Adequate omega-3 is connected to reduced risk of macular degeneration, which potentially leads to eye damage and blindness.
DHA is also vital to skin cell membrane health, keeping skin smooth and wrinkle-free. EPA, another type of fatty acid, maintains skin hydration and oil production.
Considering the above benefits, it is no surprise that omega-3 fatty acids are pivotal for infant brain growth and development. DHA accounts for 40% of the polyunsaturated fatty acids in the brain and 60% of that in the retina of the eye. Consuming sufficient amounts of omega-3 while pregnant has been linked to multiple advantages for the child, including less behavioral issues, and decreased risks of developmental delay, ADHD, cerebral palsy.
Omega-3 fatty acids come in the form of natural and processed fish oil, krill oil, flaxseed oil, and ALA oil, among others. These are only some of the forms that are made into omega-3 supplements.
While foods like walnuts, chia seeds, salmon, and cod fish are filled with omega-3 fatty acids, supplementation is a convenient option. MAKERS NUTRITION is fully-equipped to be your omega-3 supplement manufacturer. We can turn all of this information into a reality for your business.
