In the quest for optimal health‚ there have been many surprising discoveries and finds related to different alternative and herbal remedies. Sometimes‚ it seems like every major product is being touted for its health benefits as well as its precautions every other day. Yet some products have been renowned and effective for quite some time.
Fish oil is considered a trusted product for wellness these days‚ but there was once a time when what fatty fish could offer a human was seen as a health risk rather than a reward. Scientists who came across the Inuit populations of Greenland were interested in discovering how native populations ate such a heavy diet of fatty fish and marine life like salmon‚ seal‚ and whale‚ yet still had healthy hearts. The explanation behind it turned out to be related to the properties of EPA and DHA‚ two omega-3 components that are found in fish oils. It was here that a health phenomenon was created.
DHA and EPA are vital in promoting most major processes of the body: brain‚ joint‚ skin‚ nerve‚ cardiovascular‚ vision and immune systems can all be affected. DHA supports good vision and mental acuity in the large building blocks of tissue in the retina as well as the brain. It also acts as a membrane structural component‚ and forms neural transmitters which are very helpful in brain functioning. EPA is helpful in working with the cardiovascular system by forming healthy prostaglandins‚ which act as cell activity regulators. Together‚ EPA and DHA also may help foster vibrant skin‚ good blood chemistry‚ and promote flexible joints.
