Clinical Studies Link Prostate Cancer to Fish Oil

It may be time to change your oil!

If you’ve had trouble remembering things lately, maybe it’s time to "oil up" your brain and heart arteries. One of the best brain nutrients is an omega 3 oil.

New research has come up with some surprising fish oil benefits. Neural connections continue to grow throughout life if given the right lubrication…and a dose of smart exercise.

In his book, The Perricone Prescription, Dr Nicholas Perricone explains how it works.

"Brain function is intimately tied to our essential fatty acid intake. Essential fatty acids make up the phospholipid bilayer of the cell membrane which is critical in the proper functioning of the nerve cells of to our brains.”

It gets a little technical here but stay with me. Look at it as a “workout” for your brain.

Essential fatty acids, also called EFAs, are called Essential because your body cannot get along without them.

These fats, which are known as omega 3 oils, have long unpronounceable names and are known by the initials DHA, EPA and ALA.

When plaque builds up on arterial walls and then breaks loose, it forms a clot. If this clot restricts an artery in the brain, it causes a stroke and when it occurs in a heart artery it results in a heart attack. Research shows DHA helps dissolve clots before they can cause any damage.

Heart health and brain health go together like apple pie and ice cream.

DHA and EPA are found mostly in fish oil and ALA in nuts and flax seed. DHA provides one of the greatest fish oil benefits to the heart and brain.

If the oil in you body is laden with sludge-like chemically modified vegetables oils, the signals to and from your brain get through slowly…or not at all.

Your brain is designed with fish oil in mind.

Fish oil provides the perfect medium to accelerate the movement of information to and from your brain.

Now, UCLA scientists have confirmed that fish oil can help prevent Alzheimer’s disease, and they have identified the reasons why.

Greg Cole, professor of medicine and neurology at the David Geffen School of Medicine, and his team of researchers have discovered that the omega-3 fatty acid (DHA) found in fish oil increased the production of a protein which is known to destroy the “plaques” that form in the brains of Alzheimer’s victims.

Additional Fish Oil Benefits

  • They help to lower LDL cholesterol, triglycerides and blood pressure, while at the same time increasing good HDL cholesterol.
  • HDL cholesterol has been very underrated.
    A world wide study that was conducted on the risks of heart attack came to the conclusion that the greatest contributor to heart disease (after smoking) is a low ratio of HDL cholesterol to LDL cholesterol. The people who have the highest HDLs also have the greatest longevity!

  • The evidence is overwhelming that omega-3 fatty acids or, more specifically, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA from fish  oil improve memory, recall, reasoning and focus.  

  • the main components of fish oils, are highly effective in preventing sudden cardiac death, death from heart disease, and certain arrhythmias.

The fish oil benefits of omega 3 oils are not all alike

The salmon and other fish raised “in captivity” are so changed by the experience; the fish farmers have to inject them with an orange-colored dye to make their flesh look like real salmon.

You may be surprised to find this out, but eating store-bought farmed fish only gives you a fraction of the fish oil benefits you would expect to find.

It's a sad day when t what we think is good for us can actually be detrimental to our heart and brain. But read on...there is a better solution.

I'm Gene Millen. In 1990 a skilled heart surgeon sawed open my chest and stitched in bypasses to six of my favorite arteries.

That got my attention...and kindled a passion for helping others avoid a heart attack or stroke.

I've provided health and wellness programs for hundreds of people during the 11 years that my wife and I owned and operated the Vital Life Center, an award winning health and wellness club for the over 50 crowd.

I personally reject the idea of consuming a dose of toxic waste materials that an environmental polluter dumps into the ocean. It's a far cry from fish oil benefits.
