Omega 3 is the best natural alternatives to anti depressants and natural adhd remedy

Professor Tom Saldeen of Harvard Medical School recommends a diet high in omega-3 to fight depression. Saldeen’s 45 years of research has found that low concentrations of serotonin in the brain almost always correlate to low blood levels of omega-3. Recent studies have found that 1000mg EPA is as effective as Prozac in the treatment of medium to severe depression . The highest concentration of EPA per capsule is found in TakeOmega3 – this product is used and recommended in hospitals and private clinics .TakeOmega3 is recommended by NHS facilities such as Forth Valley Healthboard and leading clinics such as Priory Roehampton. It is used for a number of mental health conditions as well as behavioural / developmental  conditions such as autism , ADHD . With regards ADHD  EPA improves concentration levels , better academic performance as well as positive changes with regards behavioural problems .Parents have commented to us on the drastic changes in their childrens behaviour – from simple things such as the child being able to focus on doing a jigsaw puzzle , or sit quietly to listed to a story being read to a reduction in temper tantrums , agressive outbursts and emotional upset . The capsule can be pricked and added to a childs yoghurt or milk if they are unable to swallow capsules , it can also be added to salad dressings . Please contact us directly if you want specific information with regards treatment of ADHD .Parents very often would rather use herbal adhd treatment , alternative adhd remedy is often preferred to ritalin .

This evidence is backed by Dr Andrew Stoll, best-selling author of The Omega-3 Connection. Stoll was responsible for the publication of the first, scientifically rigorous clinical trial on omega-3 fats in psychiatry. Stoll’s patients with bipolar disorder experienced an improvement in mood stabilisation over a four-month trial period, while the placebo group experienced no change.

Mood and activity in the brain is dependent upon a series of chemical signals that cross each membrane with the help of neurotransmitters. This intricate process is referred to as transduction — sort of like a messaging service or a call centre. Now that we know omega-3 fats are a core component in every cell membrane, they are deemed crucial for signal transduction

Omega 3 fish oil may help prevent type 2 diabetes

Omega-3 boosts insulin resistance markers, suggests study

ncreased consumption of omega-3 fatty acids may help to improve important markers insulin resistance, which may lead to diabetes, says new research

The study, published in the European Journal of Lipid Science and Technology, evaluated the effects of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) on lipid profile and insulin resistance biomarkers. The researchers found that dietary intake of concentrated omega-3 capsules with meals resulted in improved lipid profiles and adiponectin levels, compared to placebo in a baseline condition, and an improvement of all insulin resistance parameters after an oral fat load.

“Omega-3 PUFA not only improved lipid profile in a baseline situation, but it also improved all insulin resistance parameters in a post-prandial situation simulated with an oral fat load. This is another important action,” said the researchers, led by Giuseppe Derosa from the University of Pavia, Italy.

Omega-3

The beneficial effects of dietary intake of omega-3 PUFA and cardiovascular disease first established following the observation that the Greenland Inuits had low mortality from coronary heart disease despite a fat-rich diet.

Since then, research haI.s demonstrated omega-3 fatty acids can improve the plasma lipid profiles, boost inflammatory responses, and reduce blood pressure, pulse pressure, and basal heart rate.

For the study, 167 patients (82 males and 85 females) were assigned to receive one gram of either placebo (a capsule containing sucrose, mannitol, and mineral salts) or omega-3 PUFA (concentrated EPA and DHA) three times a day, during meals, for six months.

Omega-3 PUFAs were reported to improve HDL-cholesterol and plasma triglyceride markers compared to placebo, while they had a neutral effect on total cholesterol and LDL-cholesterol.

After an oral fat load, the researchers found that the group taking omega-3 capsules showed an improvement of all parameters, include insulin resistance biomarkers, while there was a neutral effect with placebo.

Derosa and his colleagues concluded that omega-3 intake “resulted in a greater improvement of lipid profile and ADN compared to placebo in a baseline condition, and an improvement of all insulin resistance parameters after an oral fat load.”

Improving athletic performance

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

It is an 85 % omega 3 with 750mg EPA and 50 mg DHA per capsule and is the highest concentration omega3 product available as a supplement . The product itself is manufactured from sardines and anchovies from the purest waters in Peru – this source adheres to the highest standard of Marine Conservation . Unlike other companies we do not buy from 3rd parties in China , Korea etc this ensuring the purity of our oil. It is made in MHRA (Medical Health and Regulatory Authority ) licensed facilities here in UK which is the highest accreditation standard you can get so although this is a food/ health supplement we have applied medical standards to it to ensure that it is as pure and as concentrated as possible . The whole process takes 12 weeks , and the product is tested at multiple stages of the process to ensure purity of product most other fish oils take 3 -4 weeks to manufacture so this gives an indication of the product standard. The capsule itself is made from fish gelatin , some omega’3 fish oils are encaspulated in either bovine or porcine gelatine which makes them unsuitable for certain people either on dietary or religious grounds . The product contains no other substances as a result there will be no issue with regards doping control re performance enhancing substances .

The formulation used is high in EPA or eicosapentaenoic acid and is a unique formulation . EPA is recognised as the key natural anti inflammatory – it offers better oxygen / blood flow delivery during exercise . It offers unique cardio protection benefits and EPA specifically is used to lowering triglyceride levels though I dont imagine this is an issue for athletes .As well as that it enhances mental concentration and clarity especially during times of stress . Omega 3 specifically EPA can significantly reduce the time required for fatigued muslces to recover after exercise. They do this by helping the conversion of lactic acid to water and carbon dioxide. Omega 3 ’s are part of all cell membranes where they act as structural components and also maintain the fluidity of the cell. They are involved with the movement of substances into the cell (e.g. nutrients) and out of the cell (e.g. waste products) and also with cell to cell communication by helping to generate electrical impulses. Exercise is crucially important for optimal health, but it also creates an inflammatory response as a result the anti inflammatory properties of EPA redress the balance .During times of increased training stress, an increase of the omega 3 fatty acid, Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), can reduce inflammation in athletes.EPA ( eicosapentaenoic acid) omega3 fish oil has been show to be the most potent omega 3 to build muscle growth . In order to successfully build muscle EPA is critical as it blocks the breakdown process and muscle grows when it is being built up faster than when it breaks down
he research-backed benefits of fish oil include:

Enhances cardiovascular function and circulation
Supports the body’s natural anti-inflammatory response
Promotes joint flexibility and mobility
Supports optimal fat metabolism and body composition
Enhances exercise performance, endurance, and recovery
Better quality sleep

Prevents lactic acid build up
Is natural and safe for long-term use
Reduces Severity of Exercise-induced Bronchoconstriction in Elite Athletes

Omega 3 is linked to increased bone mineral density

Monday, June 27th, 2011

The presence of omega-3 fatty acids in young men is linked to “peak bone mass” or bone mineral density, according to a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. The study found that 22-year-old men with the highest levels of omega-3 fatty acids had the greatest bone density in the body and spine two years later.

Dr. Magnus Hogstrom and colleagues from Umea University in Sweden followed 78 healthy young men from their mid-teens to early adulthood. The team measured the BMD (bone mineral density) of the total body, hip and spine at the start of the study and again when the participants were 22 and 24 years of age. The objective was to quantify a relationship between the levels of omega-3 fatty acids and bone density.

According to the journal, “The results showed that Omega-3 fatty acids,  are positively associated with bone mineral accrual and, thus, with peak BMD in young men.” Higher bone density in youth can decrease the chances of brittle bones and osteoporosis later in life.

As well as that the EPA in omega3 is one of the most potent  natural anti inflammatory as detailed in previous blogs , as a result the EPA will reduce any inflammation naturally as there is a clear relationship with osteoporosis and inflammation the EPA will target the site of inflammation and reduce it.

Although osteoporosis is often associated with women, the American Osteoporosis Foundation reports that two million American men have osteoporosis. Inadequate physical exercise, smoking and use of antacids that contain aluminum are among risk factors.

Recent research by NASA has also shown that omega3 is a key factor in preventing bone density loss during space travel and they advise that this has important implications for those at risk or suffering from osteoporosis
