Many Studies have been conducted on the benefits of Omega 3's chiet among them are
- Cardiovascular health
Most studies support the recommendation that regular consumption of fatty fish, such as tuna and mackerel, is good for heart health. 1
- This is mainly through improved cardiovascular function and a beneficial effect on blood cholesterol levels.
- Brain development and function
The brain and nervous system contain a lot of DHA, known to be important for optimal vision and communication between brain cells. It is thought that critical times for obtaining dietary DHA are; during pregnancy and breastfeeding, in infancy and in older age (when eyesight and brain function can start to decline). 1
- Mental health
Long chain omega-3 fats may help improve symptoms of behavioural disorders (such as ADHD), depression, bipolar disorder and agerelated dementia, though the evidence is limited at this stage. 1
- Full-term pregnancy
Eating fish once a week in early stages of pregnancy may help guard against pre-term delivery. s
- Inflammatory disease
There is evidence that fish oils can modulate immune responses, improving symptoms of inflammatory diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, cystic fibrosis and inflammatory bowel disease. Of these, rheumatoid arthritis is the only condition that shows good evidence of a potential benefit from DHA and EPA, though it
is required in higher doses than could be achieved by diet alone. 1
- This means a combination of regular fish consumption and fish oil supplements may give the best benefit.
- Colorectal cancer
A recent Japanese study indicated that regular consumption of fish and fish products seems to protect against colorectal cancer. 3 More research is required to better establish this.
