Omega three benefits our body in so may ways. The benefit that I like the most, is the way it helps to improve my memory. You see, I need to remember a lot of facts and figures in my job. And fish oil definitely helps my concentration as well as my memory.
Interestingly enough, I went off my Omega 3 supplements a wee while ago, and I noticed that I became emotional. I could not get back onto my supplements fast enough.
Apart from improving our memory, Omega three benefits our brain. You see, Omega 3 plays a role in our mental health. Our brain is one of the biggest users of DHA fatty acids.
This is because the brain is comprised of some thirty per cent DHA fats. The role of the DHA fats is to keep us happy. As long as the DHA levels do not drop, then we shall not suffer from bouts of depression.
Omega three benefits our heart also. It helps to prevent us from suffering from heart attacks. You see, in the event that the platelets in our blood join together and form clots, these clots are the main cause of heart attacks and strokes.
Overseas researchers have reported that taking a fish oil supplement on a daily basis helps to reduce the number of angina attacks in men suffering from angina by about 40%.
I never mentioned that fish oil is a natural blood thinner, well it is, however if you are taking prescription type drugs or even aspirin to thin your blood, then you need to consult with your doctor before starting on a course of these supplements.
And even after seeing your doctor, I recommend that you do not take more than 2,000mg of fish oil per day.
I have good news for sufferers of rheumatoid arthritis.
