Omega Essentials capsules provide essential fatty acids which are not naturally produced by the body, and Omega-3s are unsaturated fats that help build and maintain a healthy body. The fish oil is concentrated, so you get a large amount of Omega-3 in a relatively small capsule.
Omega 3 Benefits
Can Improve risk factors for heart disease
Heart attacks and strokes are the world’s leading causes of death. Studies show that fish-eating communities have significantly less chances of getting heart diseases. This is because of the Omega 3 consumption. The potential heart benefits are,
- Reduction Triglycerides up to 15-30%
- Omega-3s reduces blood pressure levels in people with high blood pressure
- Raises good HDL cholesterol levels
- They help to prevent the formation of harmful blood clots
- By keeping your arteries smooth and free from damage, they help to prevent the plaque that can harden your arteries.
Omega 3 fatty acids may help to reduce the risk of high pressure on eye, which can lead to “glaucoma”. This is because of DHA a type of Omega 3 a major structural component of the retina of your eye. They also help to treat and prevent dry eye syndrome- a condition where your eyes don’t produce enough tears.
Interestingly, getting enough omega-3 is linked to a reduced risk of macular degeneration, one of the world’s leading causes of permanent eye damage and blindness
Depression and Anxiety
As we all know Depression is the most common mental disorder in the world. Symptoms include sadness, lethargy and a general loss of interest in life. Anxiety- is also a common mental problem, characterized by constant worry and nervousness.
Auto immune diseases
In autoimmune diseases, your immune system mistakes healthy cells for foreign cells and starts attacking them. Type 1 diabetes is one prime example, in which your immune system attacks the insulin-producing cells in your pancreas. Omega-3s can combat some of these diseases and may be especially important during early life.
Studies show that getting enough omega-3s during your first year of life is linked to a reduced risk of many autoimmune diseases, including type 1 diabetes, other auto immune diseases like Lupus and multiple Sclerosis
Reducing the symptoms for metabolic disorder
Metabolic symptoms include central obesity, high blood pressure, insulin resistance, high triglycerides and low “good” HDL cholesterol levels. Omega 3s can reduce insulin resistance, fight inflammation and improve several heart disease risk factors.
Studies show that people who consume the most omega-3s have up to a 55% lower risk of colon cancer. Additionally, omega-3 intake is linked to a reduced risk of prostate cancer in men and breast cancer in women.
Omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acids are considered immune nutrients that are commonly used for nutritional therapy in cancer patients. Also, the research published by National Library of medicine found that a combination of chemotherapy and omega 3 supplementation appears an effective strategy to enhance the clinical outcome of cancer patients in their curative and palliative clinical trajectory.
ADHD in children
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a behavioral disorder characterized by inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity. Several studies note that children with ADHD have lower blood levels of omega-3 fatty acids than their healthy peers
Omega-3s help improve inattention and task completion. They also decrease hyperactivity, impulsiveness, restlessness and aggression
Omega 3s can improve the fatty acid composition in your skin and balance its inflammatory response. In simple words, skin stays softer and less inflamed thus regulating the oil production in skin, improve balanced hydration, subdue breakouts and minimize signs of ageing.
Omega-3s can also protect your skin from sun damage. EPA helps block the release of substances that eat away at the collagen in your skin after sun exposure
Inflammation is a natural response to infections and damage in your body. Therefore, it is vital for your health. However, inflammation sometimes persists for a long time, even without an infection or injury. This is called chronic — or long-term — inflammation. Long-term inflammation can contribute to almost every chronic Western illness, including heart disease and cancer.
Notably, omega-3 fatty acids can reduce the production of molecules and substances linked to inflammation, such as inflammatory eicosanoids and cytokines
Omega 3 fatty acids can significantly reduce menstrual pain. They’re even more effective than ibuprofen in treating severe pain during menstruation.
People with mental disorders often have low level of omega 3 fats in their body. Studies suggest that omega-3 supplements can reduce the frequency of mood swings and relapses in people with both schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Supplementing with omega-3 fatty acids may also decrease violent behavior.
Reduces fat in the liver
Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is more common than you think. It has increased with the obesity epidemic to become the most common cause of chronic liver disease in the Western world. However, supplementing with omega-3 fatty acids effectively reduces liver fat and inflammation in people with NAFLD
