Taking Fish Oil Can Boost Your Brain, Your Health and Your Youth!

Taking fish oil is one of the best things you can do for your health. Studies show this oil is great for your heart, your brain and your nervous system.

In fact, my dad says he takes it because his doctor told him, "It's good for what ails you." His doctor is right.

Studies show the Omega 3 fatty acids in fish oil treat high cholesterol, blood pressure, arthritis, heart disease, depression and make you smarter. Or at least make your memory better.

Fish oil supplements are already a $1 billion dollar a year enterprise and expected to grow to $12 billion by 2012 according to The Alternative Health Journal.

Your brain is made up of about 60% DHA fat. Unfortunately, if you eat a lot of processed foods, you're probably deficient in this essential fat. This deficiency can lower your immune system, slow down your mental faculties and even put you at risk for heart disease.

But taking fish oil can help. Fatty fish like salmon, tuna and sardines are known for their high levels of Omega 3 fatty acids. These contain the necessary DHA and EPA nutrients.

These nutrients reduce inflammation and make everything in your body run smoother so you feel better, look better, are better!

A recent University of California study compared volunteers who took regular doses of Omega 3 fatty acids (found in fish oil) with those who didn't and found the Omega 3 takers actually aged slower. Their DNA slowed down. So, taking fish oil can help you look and feel younger!

According to the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, these essential nutrients prevent blood clotting and regulate or lower blood pressure. In fact, many cardiologists recommend fish oil supplements to their patients to prevent repeat heart attacks.

500 mg is recommended for most people. But if you have a history of heart problems, 800-1000 mg a day are recommended by doctors.

Taking Omega 3 fatty acids can even help your memory!

The one thing you do want to be aware of when taking fish oil is the quality of the supplement. You want to find purity at a reasonable price. Unfortunately, some companies don't take care to source their fish carefully and you may be getting toxins like mercury and lead in your supplement.
