Omega-3 fatty acids are incredibly important and have many powerful health benefits for your body and brain. In fact, few nutrients have been studied as thoroughly as omega-3 fatty acids. Taking Fortuna Nutrition's Omega 3 Fish Oil formula is beneficial in many different ways that have been scientifically proven:
Several studies have shown that people with anxiety and depression had a far lower intake of omega-3 fatty acids than those without those conditions. Adding this to the diet increases the number of serotonin — the "happy hormone" — receptors in a developing brain. For those treating anxiety, omega-3 is a viable supplement.
Studies show that low levels of omega-3 fatty acids increase the risk of Alzheimer's disease, so it makes sense to eat fatty fish twice a week or take a supplement, particularly if you have other risk factors. It's the essential fatty acids in the fish or fish oil that the brain needs to maintain optimal executive functions. These benefits help prevent brain atrophy in older Alzheimer's patients and slow down cognitive decline in those with an early diagnosis.
The Omega-3 fatty acids found in Fortuna Nutrition's blend can improve heart function and lower the risk of systemic inflammation, known to increase the risk of cardiovascular disease. Fish oil can improve the survival rate after a heart attack. It can also improve the heart function of someone who has had a recent heart attack. Your health care provider can recommend a fish oil regimen that suits your specific needs.
Adding Fortuna Nutrition's Omega 3 Fish Oil to a diet may lower the risk of diabetes-related complications. Fish oil protects the hippocampal cells and reduces oxidative stress, which plays a large role in the development of diabetes. It's an easy thing to add another type of protein to your diet, and eating fish high in omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the symptoms of diabetes, or even reverse type 2 diabetes in some cases when used in conjunction with a weight-loss diet.
Mitigating the effects of age-related eye disorders is a huge benefit when taking fish oil. Research has linked the level of polyunsaturated fats in fish oil and fresh fish to reduced levels of cortical cataracts. Also, the high EPA and DHA level the oil contains benefit those at risk for age-related macular degeneration. So if you have a hereditary eye condition, taking fish oil in mid-life can only help you in the long run.
