SALMON OIL FOR OMEGA 3 BALANCE
EFAs are also precursors to prostaglandins, which are hormone-like chemicals that affect cell function and tissue activity.
Prostaglandins have both pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory effects, and EFAs play important roles in helping to counter inflammation in the body.
In addition, EFAs make up the membrane that surrounds every cell in the body, and are found in large quantities in the brain, nerve endings, adrenal glands, eyes and reproductive organs. They are needed for many different functions such as aiding normal brain development and function, healthy skin, normal joint function and heart health.
Salmon Oil supplies 2 polyunsaturated Omega 3 EFAs, DHA and EPA, which are not found in plant oils.
The human brain is made up of over 60% fat, and of this DHA makes up 25% of the brain's grey matter. Consuming adequate levels of DHA protects nerve cells in the brain to ensure nerve cells remain supple, flexible, and able to pass on electrical and chemical messages, resulting in fast and efficient communication between cells.
It is because of this that children and adults experience numerous health benefits by increasing their dietary intake of DHA from fish oil. Omega 3 fish oils are now known for their powerful cardio-protective effects. Increased consumption of fish oils may benefit some forms of arthritis, where fish oil has shown benefit in protecting tender joints against morning stiffness and immobility. Furthermore, Omega 3 EFAs, such as those found in Salmon Oil, may help in chronic inflammation of the joints associated with arthritis, where they can help to manage the inflammatory mediators and influence the balance of prostaglandins.
