The Truth About Fish Oil
Posted by Carlos on April 15, 2013
For decades, scientists and physicians have recommended fish oil supplements containing omega 3 fatty acids to reduce triglycerides and promote overall health.
Today, we understand a lot more about how omega 3 fatty acids, especially eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), can enhance our overall health.
We mentioned cardiovascular health already, but did you know that EPA and DHA may help in other ways?
Here are a few examples:
Central Nervous System - Omega 3 fatty acids, especially EPA, may help kids dealing with ADHD. For example, a detailed review conducted at Yale University concluded:
Omega-3 fatty acid supplementation, particularly with higher doses of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), was modestly effective in the treatment of ADHD...given its relatively benign side-effect profile and evidence of modest efficacy, it may be reasonable to use omega-3 fatty supplementation to augment traditional...interventions or for families who decline other psychopharmacologic options.
Another study from the University of South Australia concluded that ADHD children may benefit from omega 3 fatty acid supplements.
Bone Health - The National Institutes of Health suggest that omega 3 fatty acids from fish oil supplements may decrease the risk for osteoporosis. So a combination of omega 3 fatty acids and Vitamin D is perfect for anyone concerned about bone health.
Eye Health - A number of studies in mice suggest that fish oil, especially fish oil high in DHA, may have some benefit in eye health, especially retinal health. There are also scattered studies suggesting that EPA/DHA supplements, when combined with Vitamin D, may have a benefit in folks at risk for Age-Related Macular Degeneration, and can cut the risk of eye disease.
Memory and Brain Health - A number of studies have tried DHA supplements for memory and brain health, especially in Alzheimer's Disease. Unfortunately, these results have not shown that DHA has much of a benefit on memory and brain health.
Blood Pressure - Recent studies clearly indicate that fish oil supplements can reduce blood pressure, especially in those who have elevated blood pressure and who are not currently receiving treatment. In fact, fish oil might work better than diet and exercise to reduce blood pressure. This suggests that a three-part combination of fish oil, diet, and exercise could lower blood pressure, without having to resort to dangerous prescription drugs.
But, we have a problem...
Too many companies produce supplements that use cheap, inefficient methods, such as distillation, to extract the essential oils from fish. Processes like distillation lead to impure products with low levels of EPA and DHA.
The solution…Quell Fish Oil!
Unlike cheap supermarket fish oil supplements, Quell Fish Oil uses a special Supercritical Carbon Dioxide Extraction process developed in Germany.
This process is a gentle, but highly effective way to purify fish oil.
This results in a product that is very pure, highly concentrated, and with more oil able to pass from the gastrointestinal tract into the bloodstream where it is needed.
Which Quell Fish Oil is right for me?
