Omega 3

Dear Friends,

Great friends, I am very happy to see good responses for these posts, even i am enjoying to sharing the information which will help people to know more about the nutrition and health. Recently when i started talk to my close family friend about some dietary supplements they said that they are getting balanced meal, They are vegetarians so i feel lot of people around us are having lot of miss co of the balanced meal and nutrition supplements, that is the main reason i started writing this blog so improve the aviaries about balanced meal and nutrition. Coming to the point to day in this article i am sharing about omega-3 fatty acids.

What can high-omega-3 foods do for you?

  • Reduce inflammation throughout your body.

  • Keep your blood from clotting excessively.

  • Maintain the fluidity of your cell membranes.

  • lower the amount of lipids (fats such as cholesterol and triglycerides) circulating in the bloodstream.

  • decrease platelet aggregation, preventing excessive blood clotting.

  • inhibit thickening of the arteries by decreasing endothelial cells' production of a platelet-derived growth factor (the lining of the arteries is composed of endothelial cells).

  • increase the activity of another chemical derived from endothelial cells (endothelium-derived nitric oxide), which causes arteries to relax and dilate.

  • reduce the production of messenger chemicals called cytokines, which are involved in the inflammatory response associated with atherosclerosis.

  • reduce the risk of becoming obese and improve the body's ability to respond to insulin by stimulating the secretion of leptin, a hormone that helps regulate food intake, body weight and metabolism, and is expressed primarily by adipocytes (fat cells).

  • help prevent cancer cell growth.

What conditions or symptoms indicate a need for more high-omega-3 foods?

  • Depression

  • Cardiovascular Disease

  • Type 2 Diabetes

  • Fatigue

  • Dry, itchy skin

  • Brittle hair and nails

  • Inability to concentrate

  • Joint pain
