If you experience problems with Infertility, hypertension, high cholesterol,
inflammation or asthma, Salmon Oil may be a solution ...
Salmon oil contains EPA and DHA, two omega 3 essential fatty acids. EPA 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. DHA 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.
Fish oils may also offer protection against some forms of cancer.
Salmon contains more omega 3 rich fat than other fish species. Salmon
supplements are usually found as standard soft gel capsules, containing 180
mg of EPA and 120mg of DHA per capsule. Some supplements, called
pharmaceutical grade, contain up to twice as much EPA and DHA per capsule.
Ensure your salmon oil supplement is not processed with heat because it
damages the acids and creates free radicals. It is important to purchase a
good quality fish oil supplement that has been tested for contaminants. Keep
capsules away from heat to increase shelf life.
