Research indicates that:
1. Omega-3 Fatty Acids are ESSENTIAL for health and well-being.
- Dietary sufficiency is necessary for the proper function of the heart, the brain and every other cell, tissue, organ and gland in the body.
2. The North American (Western) diet is DANGEROUSLY DEFICIENT in EPA/DHA from Omega-3’s.
- This deficiency is implicated as a causal factor in alarming numbers of prevent- able illnesses and disease-related deaths worldwide.
3. The only way to SAFELY consume adequate amounts of EPA/DHA is through supplementation with a purified Omega 3 fish oil.
- Wild fish oil sources are becoming increasingly toxic with mercury, dioxins and other pollutants.
- Vegetable sources like flax do not contain any EPA/DHA and the Omega 3 fats they do contain cannot be converted to EPA/ DHA in sufficient amounts.
Everybody Needs Omega 3!
Your health and the health of your loved ones is severely compromised if you are not consuming enough EPA/DHA Omega 3 fats. Conclusive scientific evidence indicates that the North American diet is dangerously deficient in EPA and DHA Omega 3 fatty acids. In fact, over 2000 scientific studies show the NECESSITY of supplementation.
Deficiencies in EPA/DHA Omega-3 fatty acids have been linked to severe illnesses throughout life:
INFANTS and CHILDREN: developmental, learning and behavioral problems such as ADHD.
ADULTS: breast, colon and prostate cancers, heart disease, strokes, diabetes, obesity, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, depression, skin disorders, and digestive disorders like ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease.
ELDERLY: arthritis, osteoporosis and Alzheimer’s disease.
Facts You Need To Know
Fact: Dietary sufficiency of EPA/DHA Omega-3 fatty acids is essential for the proper function of every cell, tissue, organ, and gland in the brain and body.
Fact: Just as with vitamins and minerals, your brain and body cannot make EPA/DHA Omega-3 fatty acids so they must be consumed in the diet.
Fact: For these reasons scientists refer to EPA/DHA Omega-3 fatty acids as ESSENTIAL fatty acids (E.F.A.s). They are absolutely essential for proper cell function and for health and they MUST be consumed in the diet.
Fact: The Western diet is dangerously deficient in EPA/DHA Omega-3 fatty acids. It is an incontrovertible scientific fact that the foods we eat today do not contain anything close to sufficient amounts of EPA and DHA.
Fact: Traditionally we consumed sufficient amounts of EPA and DHA Omega 3 fatty acids by eating wild game meat and wild fish.
Fact: EPA and DHA are NOT found in grain fed domesticated animals such as cows, pigs, lambs, chickens, and turkeys.
Fact: Farmed fish does NOT contain sufficient amounts of EPA and DHA Omega-3 fatty acids. Although wild fish does contain sufficient amounts of EPA and DHA, virtually all sources are now so toxic with mercury, dioxins, and other pollutants that they are not safe to consume in sufficient amounts.
Fact: Vegetable sources of Omega-3 fatty acids like flax seed DO NOT contain EPA or DHA. Furthermore, research indicates that vegetable sources cannot be converted to EPA and DHA within the human in sufficient amounts.
Fact: We are genetically designed to consume EPA and DHA directly, not to convert them from vegetable sources.
Fact: The only way to safely consume adequate amounts of EPA/DHA is through supplementation with fish oil.
Fact: EPA and DHA Omega-3 fatty acids are so important because they are the main component of the brain neurons and all cell membranes. This is why DHA is the main component of healthy human breast milk.
Fact: Deficiency in EPA/DHA Omega-3 fatty acids is implicated as a causal factor in virtually all the common illnesses and causes of disease-related death in the Western world.
Fact: EPA and DHA deficiency in infants and children has been shown to be a causal factor in development, learning, and behavior problems such as ADHD as well as vision, digestive and skin disorders.
Fact: EPA and DHA deficiency in teens and adults has been shown to be a causal factor in breast, colon, and prostate cancers, heart disease, strokes, diabetes, arthritis, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, depression, skin disorders, digestive disorders, chronic pain, vision problems, hormonal problems, and pregnancy complications including improper fetal development, premature birth and postpartum depression.
Fact: EPA and DHA deficiency in the elderly has been shown to be a causal factor in diabetes, high blood pressure, mood disorders, osteoporosis, arthritis and Alzheimer’s.
Fact: It is absolutely necessary to consume a pure, pristine, and toxin free source of EPA and DHA Omega 3 fatty acids for health, vitality and quality of life. This is literally required from conception to the time we pass from this earth.
Fact: People who supplement with Omega 3 fatty acids are healthier and have less chance of developing illness than those who do not have these essential nutrients in their diet.
