Omega-3s may be the key for healthy aging. Scientific evidence strongly supports EPA/DHA intake for maintaining heart health and reducing risk of serious cardiac events. EPA and DHA also contain anti-inflammatory agents and are suggested as adjunctive therapies for autoimmune disorders like inflammatory bowel disease (to reduce inflammation-associated digestive complaints) and rheumatoid arthritis (to relieve joint stiffness/tenderness). These omega-3s have also demonstrated benefits in helping reduce age-related macular degeneration and dementia to promote healthy aging. And preliminary studies have shown promise in supporting a positive mood. Depending on your health goals, concentrated doses of EPA and/or DHA may be recommended.
Get trustworthy omega-3 support. While food is always the preferred source for nutrients of any kind, it would be difficult to obtain therapeutic levels from food alone. Plus, there are warnings for certain populations to limit consumption of omega-3-rich fish that may carry a higher risk of heavy metal contamination. Likewise, omega-3 supplements can become rancid and carry risks of heavy metals, pesticides, and other contaminants. And some may have an excessively fishy smell or taste. So it's important to select an omega-3 supplement made from purity-tested marine oils that are manufactured to exacting standards, in addition to offering an appropriate dose of the right combination of omega-3s to meet your specific needs.
