Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Omega-3 Fatty Acids Important for the Heart

One of the most important heart supplements you can ever use is Omega-3 fatty acids. These important nutrients have gotten some bad press recently and now research comes out from The University of California, corroborating what most nutritionists have known for decades. Omega-3 fatty acids are indeed important for the heart.There is no system in the body more quickly effected by inflammation than the cardiovascular and these powerful ESSENTIAL fatty acids have well-known anti inflammatory benefits. If you have heart problems uses 2000 mg a a couple of times a day MINIMUM , but you can take a lot more. Make sure you take them with Vitamin E (400 i.u.) and it’s probably a good idea to use an omega -6 containing oil as a supplement AND as throughout the day as dressing for vegetables.

Procedures like angioplasty, stenting and bypass surgery may save lives, but they also cause excessive inflammation and scarring, which ultimately can lead to permanent disability and even death. A new research report appearing in The FASEB Journal, shows that naturally derived compounds from polyunsaturated fatty acids (omega-3s) may reduce the inflammation associated with these procedures to help arteries more fully and completely heal.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids Important for the Heart

“Our study suggests that biologically active, naturally occurring compounds derived from omega-3 PUFAs reduce inflammation and improve the healing of blood vessels after injury,” said Michael S. Conte, M.D., a researcher involved in the work from Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery and the Heart and Vascular Center at the University of California, in San Francisco, CA. “They suggest a new opportunity to improve the long-term results of cardiovascular procedures such as bypass surgery and angioplasty by the therapeutic application of this class of agents or their dietary precursors.”
