Research has shown that high Omega-3 Index values are related to slow rates of “cellular aging.”
“No nutrient is more important for decreasing cardiovascular death – and more lacking – than omega-3.” Bernadine Healy, MD Cardiologist and Past President of American Heart Association – Past Director of the NIH – Past Director of the Red Cross.
She concludes: “Before long, your personal Omega-3 Index just could be the new cholesterol – the number you want to brag about. Omega-3 content in red blood cells is a strong predictor cardiovascular disease.”
Low levels of Omega-3 fatty acids are associated with higher rates of:
* Heart Disease, including:
* Sudden Cardiac Death (Primary Cardiac Arrest)
* Mortality from Congestive Heart Failure
* Mortality after Heart Attack
* 2nd Heart Attack
* 1st Heart Attack in those with High Triglycerides/Low HDL 2nd Stroke Cellular Aging
* Depression (Major Depressive Disorder) Dementia/Alzheimer’s Disease, Inflammation ,Chronic Joint Swelling, Headaches, Prostate cancer.
In the USA and European Union, the average Omega-3 Index is 4-5%.
In Japan, the average diet is high in Omega-3 and the average Omega-3 Index is 9.5%.
In the USA, sudden cardiac death rates are about 20 times HIGHER than they are in Japan.
The importance of measuring your Omega-3 Index:
In one study, the Omega-3 index was measured in 704 individuals, some were taking fish oil supplementation and some were not. Only 1% of the group not taking fish oil had an Omega-3 Index of 8%.
However, in the group that was taking fish oil, only 17% had an Omega-3 Index above 8%.
83% of people in the study taking fish oil were NOT getting to goal!!!
Common fish oils don’t always supplement enough Omega 3.
Overall health can improve with a healthy omega index. Heart disease is one area where omega-3s are known to benefit. But there is also the fact that a healthy omega score slows down telomere reduction and cellular aging, limits cognitive decline and helps hold off Alzheimer’s and reduces overall inflammation levels in the body (thereby improving joint pain).
Inflammation is considered a major factor in all the diseases of aging and Omega 3 is involved in the process of reducing CRP (C-Reactive Protein) a major inflammation marker. Omega 3 can help increase levels of HDL (good cholesterol) and lower readings of both triglycerides and PSA scores.
I use Athlete’s Best Omega 3 Supplement because it includes vitamin D, the anti oxidant astaxanthin and a proprietary anti oxidant blend along with the krill oil and calamarine oil.
You can go on the Athlete’s Best website and pick up more information on the product. A link is below.
This identical formula is being sold in gyms all over the country at much higher prices.
Dr. Jim has provided Gary Scott readers a $5 code which puts this price below even the normal price at the athletesbest website.
Plus this price includes free shipping in the USA.
This brings the per bottle cost down to below $1.00 a day at $44.95 for this premium product with premium ingredients. Each bottle offers a 45 day supply of product.
A 90 day supply is $79.90 with free shipping which brings the cost per day even lower. Gary Scott readers receive a 10% discount using the code GARYSCOTT10.
Since it takes roughly 90 days for red blood cells to go through a complete cycle users really need to take the product (or any supplement for that matter) for at least 90 days to get the maximum benefit.
A 90 day supply is less than $.95 a day for a product that provides a superior and proprietary omega 3 formula, the Astaxanthin, the vitamin D and the anti oxidant blend.
