Why Omega-3 Supplements?
Omega-3s are like a bucket of water that is used to contain a campfire and keep it from spreading except on a cellular inflammation level.
First, what is an Omega Fatty Acid? Imagine your body as a campfire. There are good uses for campfires, and there are those that turn into wildfires because they burn without boundaries or controls. Omega 6 Fatty Acids (the lesser known of the two we'll discuss) are inflammatory acids within the body that attack harmful things like viruses. They are very useful to the body as inflammatory agents that attack diseased cells and eliminate them. They act as our "campfire" burning up the bad cells. The American Diet is choked full of the Omega 6 Acids, and there is no need to supplement those.
Omega 3 is a Fatty Acid that acts as an anti-inflammatory to the body's system at a cellular level. They act as the bucket of water you keep near your campfire to keep it contained. Once the Omega 6′s have burned up the bad cells, Omega 3′s step in to extinguish the fire, so to speak, and calm the body. The reason people need to supplement Omega 3′s is because the average American Diet has about 6 parts Omega 6 to every 1 part Omega 3. This can equal a wildfire of inflammation, as the body doesn't have enough buckets of water to extinguish the flames of the Omega 6.
Omega 3′s can reduce the likelihood of obesity, keep arteries from thickening, and prevent certain types of cancer cells from growing. Although Omega 3 is found in foods like many types of fish, tofu, flaxseed, and walnuts, it is usually not enough to eat Omega 3′s alone. We want the ratios to be balanced at a 1:1 not 6:1 for Omegas.
So Omega 3 Fatty Acid helps you keep the wildfire of inflammation from attacking your body! NuMedica provides several quality Omega supplements including Omega 1700 TG Liquid, Omega 600 USP EC, Omega 780 USP EC, Omega 950 USP and Omega EFA Complex.
