BENEFITS OF FISH OIL: FIND BALANCE WITH NUTRIWAY®
Though omega-3 fatty acids are important components of every cell in the body, our bodies are incapable of producing them. Known as essential nutrients, omega-3 fatty acids assist in maintaining normal blood cholesterol levels, heart health, normal eye and brain function and also support joint health. Yet, omega-3s are part of a group of nutrients only obtainable through the food we eat. The Heart Foundation recommends eating at least three servings of fatty fish every week to receive the proper amount of omega-3 in one’s diet.*
“While omega-3s help maintain good brain, heart, joint and vision health, their impact on the body is greater,” says Nutrilite® Research Scientist Alli Klosner. “They play an important role in maintaining balance between omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.” Like omega-3, omega-6 is an essential nutrient. It’s found in foods that we more commonly eat, like meat, eggs and vegetable oils.
Omega-3 and omega-6 are components of our body’s cell membranes, but our bodies benefit from these nutrients best when they are in balance. Omega-6 molecules are more rigid than omega-3 molecules, so when your cell membranes have more omega-6 than omega-3, it can be difficult for your cells to communicate with one another to carry out their proper functions.
Nutrilite®scientists have developed an easy solution to help you fill your omega-3 dietary gap and bring balance to your omega ratio — NUTRIWAY® Omega-3 Complex. Each softgel contains an omega-3 rich blend of fish oils from sardines, anchovies and menhaden, offering an excellent sources of DHA and EPA.
“Getting omega-3, especially if you don’t eat an adequate amount of fish, can be difficult.” says Klosner. “But, taking the time to ensure you are getting this essential nutrient— perhaps through supplementing the diet — puts you one step closer toward achieving optimal health.”
