Omega 3 fatty acids


These fatty acids keep the heart, help with arthritis, protect against cancer, stimulate collagen production? The story of fat may seem confusing. Are all harmful, or has useful? The answer is: there are both. One so-called saturated, such as animal, can be harmful because they increase the risk of heart disease (as consisting mainly of triglycerides and are stored in fat cells of the body), a so-called polyunsaturated, on the contrary, useful.




Therefore, the first entry must be limited (not quite out), and others increase. In the group of unsaturated fatty acids are linolenic omega-3 and omega-6. These are the men essential fatty acid that the body does not produce, so I have to bring food. Omega-3 fatty acids have in certain types of fish, blue and sometimes more than double the white: sardines, mackerel, tuna, cod, lake trout, herring, salmon, and in the meat of crustaceans and marine mammals and fish oil. The source of these acids is that marine phytoplankton organisms feed. The flax seed, pumpkin (yellow), canola oil, soybeans and walnuts have omega-3 fatty acids of the third type (alpha-linolenic), which are less efficient than other types, but they are good alternative to people who do not like fish. Omega-6 fatty acids have the sesame seeds, sunflower, flax, walnuts and hazelnuts.
In many studies it was found that omega-3 fatty acids, eikosapentoenoična (EPA) and dokozaheksaenoična (DHA) protects against heart disease and atherosclerosis, because they reduce the possibility of blood clots, thus reducing the possibility of clot formation (thrombosis) which can lead to sudden death when? DETACHED?. Also, it was found that could help sufferers of arthritis, the joints because they are less sensitive and swollen. New research has shown that omega-3 fatty acids protect against breast cancer, colon and uterus, and is thought to act to impede cancer cell energy. Play an important role in maintaining the health of cell membranes, so they easily withstand the attacks of carcinogenic substances. In addition, they can alleviate depression and other mental disorders, menstrual pain, forcing the body to produce prostaglandins less strong, the main causes of muscle spasms of the uterus, and contribute to the faster development of the fetal brain. Are important for the beauty of the skin because they encourage the formation of collagen and deeply moisturize.
So, at least twice a week you should eat oily fish, in portions of 180 grams (pregnant women should be limited to 350 grams of cooked fish per week), while taking fish oil should be careful because it can prevent normal blood clotting, which can cause profuse menstrual bleeding. Since the fish are an important source of protein, essential amino acids and is easily digested, and contains the fat soluble vitamins (A, D and E which are antioxidants), and B group vitamins and minerals: magnesium, calcium, fluorine and iodine, and selenium, which is also an antioxidant (which means it preserves DNA and cell membranes from free radicals, thus acting against cancer)? There are compelling reasons to fish (and other seafood) often find themselves on the table.

Foods rich in omega-3 unsaturated fatty acids should significantly reduce the mortality of heart patients in the older population. This latest research has shown the American scientists, who compared the ingredients dokozahesaenoične acid (DHA), Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) and alpha-linolenic acid in the blood of 179 people who died from heart disease including heart attacks. They found a link between higher concentrations of DHA, EPA and alpha-linolenic acid and a lower risk of mortality.
In addition, numerous studies show about the importance of omega-3 acids to combat inflammation, which could lead to their use in treating autoimmune diseases such as arthritis, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, psoriasis, multiple sclerosis and migraine. Numerous studies demonstrate the importance of taking fish oil supplements as food for these diseases, which alleviates disease and reduces the use of drugs. EB

According to the research, it was published in the journal American Jurnal of Clinical Nutrition stated that omega-3 fats can increase bone mineral density and thus contribute to increase bone mass in men in developing countries. Research has indicated that when the increased intake of omega 3 fats in the diet of men from 22 years there has been an increase in bone density in the spine and body equally two years of implementation of this method ishrane.Dakle if sufficient quantities of omega 3 fats can help prevent the occurrence osteoporosis in the future. Although this disease is associated with women, men also suffer from osteoporosis caused by insufficient physical activity, smoking and using the funds to reduce gastric acid secretion.

Further researches of omega-3 fats are included 55 healthy adults. The effect of omega-3 in brain and brain matter. After reviewing the MRI (people who are in the diet had a higher prevalence of omega 3 fats) found that increased intake of omega-3 leads to an increase in the volume of brain matter in the part of the brain responsible for mood and emocije.Takođe is evidence of correlation between the levels of omega 3 fats levels and a positive outlook on life. People with lower levels of omega 3 in the bloodstream will be much more impulsive and have a negative outlook on life compared to people with higher levels of omega 3, which will have a positive view of life. So analysis of omega-3 indicated that they have an important role in structuring and improving brain function related to mood.

Omega 3 fatty acids may also prevent colon cancer in men by 66%. Sprečavaj cancer, said to be blocked by omega-6 fatty acids to induce the occurrence of cancer. Fatty acids become or omega 3 or omega 6thOmega 3 prevents the occurrence of cancer until it omega 6 can cause. Given that the diet of people from Asia and Africa, largely represented omega 3 fats (fish, flaxseed oil), the percentage of cancer is lowest in the world.

One sprčavaju prostate cancer. Researchers at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm studied and followed the diet 1500muškaraca with prostate cancer and more than 1,100 without the disease. Research findings have pointed to the fact that those men who ate salmon (rich in omega 3 fats) at least once a week, the risk of cancer decreased by 42%. In the second group of respondents (those who had represented this type of meat in the diet), the risk remained not promenjen.Smatra that this reaction and the impact caused by the effect of omega 3 tzv.Cox-2 gene. It actually exists in 60% of the population and is considered to be on improving efikiasnost effects of omega-3 fats. In addition to these facts if the intake of sufficient amounts of fish containing omega-3 reduces the risk of prostate cancer and part of the population that does not contain this specific gene.
