1. Bye, Bye Depression
Studies have confirmed (if you care about what studies say!) that omega 3 oils can decrease the symptoms of depression. Most research points to the EPA and DHA as the factors that contribute to getting you in a better mood.
Omega 3 oils have also been effective for helping new moms with postpartum depression. The process of pregnancy can leave a mom pretty depleted of many nutrients and omega 3 oils is one that can help once the baby is born.
Some studies show that up to 90%+ are deficient in omega 3 oils, so imagine how much better we’d all feel if we just made a conscious effort to eat more walnuts… maybe world peace?
2. Smooth, Supple Skin.
Omega 3 oils are essential for healthy skin. Using these oils internally can help build strong and plump skin cells that give you a glow that no cosmetic can match.
You can use these oils externally as well to protect and feed your skin, since this massive organ loves to feed itself with healthy oils.
3. Lift Brain Fog.
But, just like omega 3 oils are great to help change you from depressed to happy, they’re also great to help lift your mood.
Think of it this way…
60% of your brain is fat.
The majority of that are essential fatty acids.
So if you’re deficient, then you’re brain just won’t work properly.
With your essential fatty acids, if you don’t give your brain enough, then your thinking conditions change just as dramatically.
4. Ease joint pain.
I can’t tell you how many stories I’ve heard about omega 3 oils improving joint pain.
It even worked for me.
Before I started experimenting with omega 3 oils, my knees would ache badly after a run. It wasn’t overuse pain, though. It was a deep aching inside my joints.
I thought maybe this was the start of a transition into my older age, but I started to take omega 3 oils based on a suggestion from a colleague and the pain went away in weeks.
It never came back.
So apparently, there’s something to this…
Try it for yourself and see.
5. Prevent Cancer Cell Growth
Your level of inflammation is one of the biggest factors you can use to predict your chances of disease.
People with higher levels of inflammation are more likely to have heart issues, diabetes, and cancer. Thermography is a screening tool that you can use to see if you have excessive inflammation in the body and some preliminary data shows that it’s a decent indicator of identifying the risk of cancer as well.
Lower your inflammation, lower your chances of disease.
6. Boost your immune system.
Just like above, if you can reduce inflammation, you also can boost your immune system.
By reducing the inflammation in the body, you also increase immune system efficiency. Increasing omega-3 fatty acids will give you a higher amount of eicosanoids which are responsible for regulating immune and inflammation responses.
7. Lower your risk of heart disease.
Omega 3 oils have been shown to lower triglycerides which are fats in the blood. This is good news for anyone who has a high risk of heart disease.
Lower fat in the blood allows your hormones to function properly and keeps your arteries safe from potential clogging.
What are the best sources of Omega 3 Oils?
There are many places to get your omega 3 oils and it’s up to you to find out which one works best for you.
Decisions that you need to make are if you want plant sources or animal sources (or both) and if your body is actually able to absorb and use the kind you’re taking. (Plant sources many times require conversion in the body that some people do better than others.)
Food sources of omega 3 fatty acids include…
- Sacha Inchi
- Flax Seeds
- Chia Seeds
Depending on your diet choice, be sure to eat enough omega 3’s daily from whole foods.
