Omega 3 Health: More Than Just Fish Oil
The body requires all kinds of nutrients, minerals, and vitamins for optimum health. And in the Standard American Diet (SAD), none are more deficient than Omega-3 fatty acids.
An array of critical bodily processes are dependent on these fats for proper function, particularly in the immune system and brain.
From concentration to managing inflammation, peak performance to cardiovascular health, and even fertility, Omega 3 Health is a cornerstone of your vitality and well-being.
It's All About the Ratio
When it comes to eating healthy fats and oils, most people don't realize that the ratio of the right kinds of fats is really important.
Most experts agree that a ratio of 3:1 or 4:1 of Omega-6 to Omega-3 is ideal, but average American intake is more like 20:1 – over ten times more than needed.
Unfortunately, many of our sources for healthy Omega-3s are poor, degraded by modern food manufacturing processes, by our polluted environment, and by the lack of choices available in restaurants and grocery stores. Unless you're paying vigilant attention to your dietary fat intake, you're probably out of balance.
You probably need more Omega-3s.
This is where supplementation can make all the difference.
The Fatty Brain
The human brain is made of over 60% fats, so ensuring you have enough of the right kind of fats in your diet is clearly important.
Omega-3 Fatty acids are used in everything from cell membranes to signaling. They make up the very structure of your neurons and glial support cells. They are used to make steroids, hormones, and other key molecules that help your nervous system function smoothly and efficiently.
Omega-3s keep your mind in balance. Without them, our mental sharpness and poise suffer. We lose our center and can begin to struggle without even realizing it, blaming other external causes, or seeking unnecessary fixes like caffeine or prescription drugs.
Many people don't realize that "symptoms" they may be coping with or trying to drug away may simply be a dietary deficiency. Anxiety. Depression. Brain Fog. Scattered attention.
Studies have shown that Omega-3 supplements improve focus and concentration while lowering symptoms of ADD. [1-3]
Consider this when considering the fact that over 17 million children are on a prescription drug for mental health.
How many of these kids could be kept off of toxic prescription meds with a simple supplement? Or, for adults, how many hours of time wasted by scattered, inefficient focus could be saved? How much more present could you be, how much more dialed-in and productive?
Other studies have found that Omega-3 supplementation can reduce symptoms of depression by 40% and even impacts other forms of anxiety and mood disorders. [4, 5] Is life really that bad for the one out of six Americans on a prescription drug for mental issues?
Or do they just need to look at their SAD (Standard American Diet) food intake and increase some of the essentials that help promote a healthy brain?
Further studies show that Omega-3s alleviates the debilitating, degenerative effects of dementia. 
It makes you wonder, have you monitored your fat intake lately?
Are you getting enough? Your kids? Your loved ones?
