Omega-3’s Reduce Risk of Death
We have highlighted a number of studies that show the positive effects of omega-3 fatty acids on specific health issues. New research, however, goes beyond these particular concerns and reveals a much broader picture. The study, published in the Journal of Clinical Lipidology, shows that higher levels of EPA and DHA (types of omega-3’s) in red blood cells showed a lower risk of all-cause mortality in postmenopausal women. Researchers found that approximately 1g of these fatty acids were required in the diet daily for these results – the amount in about 2.5 to 3 salmon fillets per week. All this reinforces the need to make omega-3 fatty acids a significant and regular part of your diet.
If you want to increase your omega-3 fatty acid consumption (without the potential of heavy metals in fish) consider supplementation, including the concentrated, purified one we offer.
