We Need Nutra Sea
Like vitamins and minerals, omega-3 must be supplied by our diet as it is
not produced by our bodies. Omega-3 fatty acids are responsible for proper
functioning of the cellular membrane, and therefore are critical to the
health of all cells. Omega-3 fatty acids regulate many bodily processes,
such as inflammation, immune system response, and neurological functioning.
NutraSea is an award winning, great tasting, pharmaceutical grade omega-3
fish oil and the preferred brand of leading medical institutions and doctors
in North America. NutraSea is also third party tested to guarantee the
highest level of quality and purity.
What are Omega-3s
Essential fatty acids (EFA): omega-3 and omega-6, are vital to the proper
functioning of the body. Because our body cannot manufacture them they must
be present in our diet. EFAs are necessary for healthy cell membranes,
oxygen transfer, energy production, and are extremely important for the
proper functioning of the body's electrical system. EFAs are also precursors
to hormone-like substances called prostaglandins which regulate vital
processes in the body. A balance between omega-3s and omega-6s is extremely
important. Excessive omega-6 consumption promotes inflammation in the body.
Omega-3s on the other hand actually suppress inflammation in the body.
DHA: The Brain EFA
Docosahexanoic acid is an omega 3 essential fatty acid. It is an essential
component of the brain and central nervous system. It seems to concentrate
in areas where there is lots of electrical activity such as the synaptosomes,
where nerve cells communicate, and the photoreceptors of the eye. This is
why a deficiency of DHA can result in poor brain development,
attention/deficit hyperactivity disorder, learning disorders, memory
problems and poor visual development.
EPA: The Heart EPA
Eicosapentaenoic acid is an omega 3 essential fatty acid. It is an important
fatty acid in the maintenance of cardiovascular health and the regulation of
inflammation. EPA is a precursor to a series of chemicals whose job it is to
regulate the inflammatory effects of arachidonic acid. Too much arachidonic
acid leads to pain and inflammation in conditions such as arthritis.
Arachidonic acid also causes inflammation in arteries and leads to the
development of atherosclerotic plaques. Deficiency of EPA can result in
cardiac arrhythmias, high cholesterol and excessive aging. EPA has been used
to treat heart disease, arthritis and other inflammatory conditions.
Benefits of NutraSea
Essential fatty acids have been used to treat eczema, psoriasis, attention
deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), arteriosclerosis, hypertension,
cancer, diabetes, multiple sclerosis (MS), menopause and premenstrual
syndrome (PMS). They can also help to improve hair and skin, prevent blood
clots, improve memory and regulate hormone levels.
The Omega-3 Deficiency
The average North American diet is severely deficient in omega-3 fatty acids
yet excessively high in omega-6 fatty acids. Experts suggest a proper
omega-6 to omega-3 ratio is around 1:1 but during this century the ratio has
skyrocketed to 20:1 or greater. This imbalance is considered to be a major
risk factor for the development of arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular
disease, and other degenerative diseases that now plague the western world.
Why Choose Nutra Sea?
NutraSea's high quality starts with the selection of high quality fish from
