The benefits of Omega 3
DHA appears to be important for visual and neurological development in infants. Some studies show that fish oil can reduce the symptoms of ADHD in some children and improve their mental skills, like thinking, remembering, and learning. But more research is needed in this area, and omega-3 supplements should not be used as a primary treatment.
American medical researchers reported that people who consumed fish once or more every week had a 50 percent lower risk of dying from a sudden cardiac event than does who eat fish less than once a month.
Omega 3 notably reduces the enzyme activity that causes the liver to metabolize fat. Studies have also shown that omega-3 fats are anti-arrhythmic (preventing or counteracting cardiac arrhythmia), anti-thrombotic (prevents thrombosis or a blood clot within a blood vessel), anti-atherosclerotic (preventing fatty deposits and fibrosis of the inner layer of your arteries), and anti-inflammatory (counteracting inflammation – the heat, pain, swelling, etc).
