Eating Healthy Fats Can Lessen Pain, Inflammation, Chronic Illness

You have many choices for Omega-3 fatty acids these days. There are two main categories of Omega-3 fatty acids. Those that are fish (marine-derived) and those flax (plant-derived).

You will find a huge difference in prices among stores and in the quality and benefits or lack of benefits that you derive from your Omega-3 fatty acids that you purchase. If you taste or smell any kind of “fishy-ness” the quality is inferior and what you smell and taste cud lead to “free radical formation” in your body, which can lead to illness, injury, pain and decreased years to your life. That “fishy” smell and taste that you’re experiencing is the oxidation caused by hexane, excessive heat and lesser quality of manufacturing processes of your Omega-3 fatty acids then say a Nordic Natural brand (from Norway), or a Standard Process brand, which Dr. Bob feels is best and which our office offers to our patients.

All of the Nordic Natural and Standard Process products are manufactured to the highest of quality to best preserve their concentrated fish oil in order to enhance absorption and utilization into your body.

Omega-3 fatty acids are also based into a number of their carbon bonds. Without going too deeply into chemistry and electron shells there are n-3’s and n-6’s. A healthy ratio of n-3’s to n-6’s in our bodies is respectively 2:1. But these days with different levels of stress in our lives and the reduced quality of food in our food chain the n-6’s get up to numbers of n-20 to n-25 or higher, which can lead lead to heart disease, diabetes, cancer, arthritis, mood swings, depression, dementia, Alzheimer’s.

Benefits of Regular Intake of Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Omega-3’s are comprised of EPA (eicosa-pentoic acid) , DHA ( docosa-hexaenoic acid), GLA (gamma-linolenic acid) and OA (oleic acid).
