We’ve all heard that Omega 3 is good for us, but do we know how good it really is? Increasing your Omega 3 intake– especially docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA)– can do the body some serious good. There is evidence suggesting that increasing Omega 3 fat intake can reduce the risk of developing cardiovascular disease* and could help relieve dry eyes associated with computer use. **
These days, many of us are lacking this fatty acid in our diets, but how do you know? There are many signs that you may be deficient in Omega 3 including Unhealthy Skin, Depression, Fatigue and Weight Gain to name but a few.
But did you know there is a potential link between Omega 3 and Stress?! The relationship between Omega 3 fatty acid intake and adaptation to stress or anxiety is becoming clearer. Back in 2011, a team of researchers from INRA and Inserm showed that reducing the intake of Omega 3 fatty acids in mice increased their stress. This opens new perspectives in understanding the role of Omega 3 fatty acids in the management of stress by the brain.
If you suspect, you may be deficient in Omega 3 and suffer from stress/anxiety, it might be worth considering supplementation and additionally, try using the LifeWave patch, Y-Age Aeon. This patch combats stress and anxiety, and Omega 3 can help reduce the risk of developing cardiovascular disease. The Aeon patch is clinically proven to reduce stress in the body and promotes relaxation.
At LifeWave, we are currently running through a test release of a new Algae-based Vegan Omega 3 supplement called Theta Pure, that is suitable for the whole family. This new product is currently available to the Scandinavian and Icelandic markets as a test in the LifeWave Back Office. Initial feedback on this new product has been outstanding. We will inform our members when we will release Theta Pure to other countries following on from our testing. Y-Age Aeon patches are available for purchase in all markets in the LifeWave Back Office.
