Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Fill up on omega-3 fatty acids and you’ll do your body good. See and feel the benefits of this “good for you” fat from head to toe. These fats have been proven to ease joint pain caused by arthritis, decrease triglyceride and bad cholesterol levels, lower high blood pressure and so much more.

Unfortunately, your body can’t produce this essential fatty acid on its own but luckily, we can get enough Omega-3 through the food we eat. There are tons of good foods out there that should be a part of your daily diet.

Metabolic Medical Center promotes a healthy diet with omega-3 fat as the main fat source.

Benefits of Omega-3

  • Protects against stroke.  Keeps blood from excessive clotting.
  • Reduced risk of obesity. Improves the body’s ability to respond to and use insulin effectively.
  • Healthy cell growth. Every cell membrane is made of fatty acid. It allows nutrients in and waste out.
  • Reduced Bad (LDL) Cholesterol.
  • Raises Good (HDL) Cholesterol.
  • Lowers blood pressure.
  • Skin disorders. Shows less sensitivity to sun damage.
  • Less likely to have macular degeneration. Age related eye condition that can lead to blindness.
  • Reduced risk of colon, breast and prostate cancer. Since every cell is made of fatty acid, when it reproduces it’s a healthy cell.
