Omega-3 fatty acids are essential to the production of hormone substances that regulate a wide range of body and mind functions. EPA and DHA in omega-3 are known to reduce the risk of arthritis, cardiovascular disease, heart attack, and high blood pressure.

Omega-3 Fats Promote Good Health

Omega fat DHA promotes a healthy heart. Death from heart disease among the Greenland Eskimos is only 3.5 percent of all their deaths. The second New England Journal study concluded that the high fat diet has, in some way, protected the Eskimos from heart disease. Omega fat DHA can lower blood pressure by increasing red blood cell fluidity and by regulating the level of cortisol, which is known as “the stress hormone.” DHA intake could also prevent aggression during mental stress, according to Dr. Donald Rudin in Omega-3 Oils: Practical Guide.

The human brain needs omega fat DHA. DHA is present in the membranes of the brain synapses and in the retina of the eye. However, DHA declines with aging and this may result in a declining mental function that could lead to dementia, and depression. A DHA deficiency could also cause an increased tendency to suicide and violence.
