The benefits of omega-3 fatty acids

A number of recent studies have provided evidence highlighting the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids, particularly eicosapentaenoic (EPA) and docosahexaenoic (DHA) acids. These two omega-3 fatty acids are found in fish and fish oil supplements, but also in vegan supplements such as algae-derived oil.

Diabetic neuropathy, pain in the extremities caused by nerve damage, is a known complication that accompanies diabetes. However, people who do not suffer from diabetes but consume a lot of omega-6 fats can also develop this nerve pain. The same fat imbalance also contributes to pain caused by arthritis, trauma, and surgery. This can be prevented by eating more omega-3 fatty acids and less omega-6 fatty acids.

People who suffer from migraines can significantly reduce their pain and its frequency by reducing the intake of omega-6 fatty acids and increasing anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids. With this change in diet, a number of patients have successfully reduced the use of anti-migraine drugs.

An analysis that involved 149,000 people found that taking supplements with EPA fatty acids reduced the chances of a heart attack, the need for heart surgery, and deaths caused by heart disease.

Higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids predict a healthier life. This is information of the well-known, decades-long Framingham Heart Study, on which many of today’s heart health guidelines are based. The researchers concluded that omega-3 fatty acid levels in the blood are important for health assessments as blood pressure, cholesterol, smoking, and the presence or absence of diabetes

Omega-3 supplements may help prevent and treat depression and anxiety. EPA seems to be the most effective at fighting depression.
