Omega-3 Fatty AcidsOmega-3 Fatty Acids

Does taking omega-3 fatty acid supplements actually help? Well, just read the article below about a the results of a new study conducted by Professor Mark Hall of the University of Leeds in the UK.

Read the article by clicking on this link: New omega-3 preparation protects against bowel polyps.

According to the study, there’s new hope for patients diagnosed with a “rare inherited condition called FAP (familial adenomatous polyposis), thought to be responsible for about one in every 100 bowel cancers.”[1] There were several notables from the case study;

  1. Omega-3 EPA found as effective as drugs prescribed to prevent pre-cancerous bowel polyps;
  2. It’s plausible to presume that omega-3s could help prevent all bowel polyps;
  3. Researchers observed a significant reduction in the number and size of polyps in a group of patients that were given 2 grams daily of a new highly purified formulation of the omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid EPA.

Omega-3 fatty acids have also been known to help fight heart disease. Since omega-3s are safe and good for cardiovascular health, the UK team noted that EPA could be especially suitable for older patients at risk of both bowel cancer and heart disease. It’s been noted that “around 85 per cent of people diagnosed with bowel cancer are over the age of 60.”[1]

Extensive research has been done on omega-3 fatty acids, which indicates that omega-3 fatty acids reduce inflammation and help prevent risk factors associated with chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and arthritis. These essential fatty acids are highly concentrated in the brain and appear to be particularly important for cognitive (brain memory and performance) and behavioral function.

So to answer the original question; Does taking omega-3 fatty acid supplements actually help? I guess you have to be the judge. However, form my research, I have yet to find an article or case study that says, omega-3 fatty acids do nothing. That’s why I promote a supplement like omega-3 fatty acids.

Essential fatty acids (EFAs) support our wellness in so many ways, and it all starts with helping to reduce runaway inflammation. Many of us don’t realize this, but it’s that runaway inflammation that can lead to various serious health problems in the body involving the heart, arteries, lungs, joints and more.

If you’re not doing something to prevent inflammation and/or heart disease, maybe it’s time to start. We are all getting older, and it’s the aging process that increases our chances of getting cancer or heart disease.
