At The Heart Of Good Health

At the “Heart” of Good Health: Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Scientists often discover health breakthroughs by good luck and circumstance. In the 1960s a researcher studied why Canada’s northern Eskimos weren’t suffering from heart disease as much as other North Americans, even though the Eskimos were eating a diet very high in fat (seal and polar bear flesh). It turned out that the flesh of these animals, and certain northern fish, was rich in a type of fat known as omega-3.

Omega-3 fatty acids are a type of polyunsaturated fatty acids. But omega-3s are unique in adjusting cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood in a way that benefits our heart and arteries.

Further research has clarified the now-accepted fact that omega-3 fatty acids do not clog our arteries. More importantly, omega-3s actually help thin the blood and lower levels of circulating fatty acids in the blood. These last two effects are probably why the Eskimos staved off widespread heart disease.

Prescribed to lower disease risk

Omega-3s are now prescribed by physicians to help lower the risk of heart disease. In fact, the American Heart Association and other medical authorities in the U.S. and around the world also recommend a diet rich in omega-3s and taking a supplement in varying doses, depending on your health status and medical conditions.

Omega-3s have been studied for many other medical conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes and abnormal heart rhythms. Science confirms that there is indeed a positive impact on these conditions when taking anywhere from 2,000–4,000 milligrams of omega-3s daily.

Omega-3s are now incorporated into infant formulas as a way of enhancing brain development. After all, the brain is 60% fat—what better way to nourish a growing child’s brain than by giving that child a healthy form of fat?

You can get your omega-3 supply from fatty fish—typically salmon, tuna, halibut, sea bass and some predatory fish like king mackerel, swordfish and others. Be careful not to overeat the large, predatory fatty fish as they also contain more potentially harmful heavy metals such as mercury. Some plant foods contain the precursor to omega-3s, known as Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA). ALA is found in walnuts, tofu and many seeds.

For good health, eat a healthy and balanced diet, and get your daily dose of omega-3 fatty acids
