The most risk factors for heart disease are reduced by the consumption of fish or fish oil rich in omega 3

The main benefits of Omega-3 fatty acids of natural living care

1 These fatty acids make the blood platelets less sticky : They therefore help prevent the formation of clots in the blood vessels. These clots are known to be responsible for myocardial infarction and stroke

2 They make the red blood cells more flexible : This allows these globules to more easily reach all the regions of the body and thus to better oxygenate all the tissues

3 They help to decrease triglycerides in the blood : High triglycerides are known to be a risk factor for vascular disorders

4 They help to tone cell membranes, improve the central nervous system and fight against all forms of cancer

5 They promote the reduction of blood pressure : It is a prostaglandin derived from an omega-3 fatty acid that is responsible for this important phenomenon. It works by relaxing the ring muscles in the arteries

6 They lower blood cholesterol levels : High cholesterol is known to be a risk factor for heart disease and stroke

7 They regulate the presence of lipoproteins that transport cholesterol : They lower LDL (bad cholesterol) and increase HDL (good cholesterol)

8 They help to stabilize the heartbeat : They therefore prevent disorders such as cardiac arrhythmia. We know that this last problem can lead to cardiac arrest

9 They improve the functioning of the kidneys : In particular, they allow better removal of excess water. At the same time, they help to reduce water retention and blood pressure

10 They improve the energy level : They allow for better physical performance. By promoting physical effort, they contribute to the improvement of the heart and arteries

11 Improve mood, better fight depression and better manage stress : We know that poorly controlled stress can lead to many health problems

12 They decrease the production of fibrinogen : It is known that this protein, present in too great a quantity in the blood, promotes the formation of clots in the blood vessels

13 They are at the origin of the production of cytokines, substances whose properties are to defend the organism against external aggressions

14 They are very useful in the treatment of arthritic and rheumatic disorders. In particular rheumatoid arthritis, they are effective in reducing pain

15 They help soften the skin, especially in the treatment of psoriasis and eczema

16 According to studies at Laval University, DHA-like Omega-3s would help prevent Alzheimer's disease

17 Omega-3 fatty acids would promote weight loss : They would help stop the production of fat-generating genes in the body and increase fat loss by 14% during exercise
