Omega-3 Fats May Reverse Aging

Omega-3 fatty acids play a crucial role in keeping aging at bay. High levels of omega-3 fatty acids found in the blood can decrease the rate of biological aging. The omega-3 fat DHA could enhance the brain working memory function and cognitive ability that declines with aging. Omega-3 fats can also promote healing of other aging-related conditions such as anxiety, chronic fatigue syndrome, and obsessive compulsive disorder. In 1996, a study on depression showed that omega-3 in fish oil could be effective in the treatment of bipolar disorders.

DHA and EPA from fish oil are important for the maintenance of a healthy body and sound mind. Omega-3 DHA has been linked to the healing of depression, and memory loss. Omega EPA fish oil helps with concentration by assisting in the transmittal of messages within the tiny gaps of the brain called synapses.

How much of omega-3 does one need for a healthy mind and body? Studies on omega-3 have been carried out using fish oils of at least 65% concentrate. In some cases, clinical trials use up to 12 grams of omega-3 fatty acids per day. One of the easiest ways to ensure its therapeutic effect is to make sure that omega-3 supplements are pure and have high concentration of DHA and EPA per serving. For a healthy body and sound mind, an average person should consume five grams per day of omega-3 plus essential fatty acids from deep sea fish oil.
