Why Omega 3 Supplements May Be Necessary

Omega-3 fatty acids are nutrients that are essential to prevent and manage heart disease. Among the many benefits, Omega 3s lower blood pressure, reduce the likelihood of a stroke, help reduce abnormal heart rhythm, lessen the chance of a sudden heart attack, and they reduced triglycerides.

The American Heart Association recommends at least two meals that include fish at least once a week, but for many people that isn’t possible. When your are deficient in Omega 3s, apart from losing the benefits that fight heart disease, high blood pressure etc., you may also see an increase in anxiety and depression, memory issues, and dry skin. An increase in fatigue may also be caused by too little Omega 3s in your diet.

You can add Omega 3s naturally to your diet by eating more fish,  especially fatty fish like mackerel, salmon, sardines and herring. Shellfish like oysters also have lots of Omega 3s, as does caviar. If seafood is not your favorite you can get more Omega 3s from chia seeds, flax seeds, soybeans, and walnuts. There are also foods that have been fortified with Omega 3s, including eggs, milk, juices, soy milk, yogurt, and margarine. So, with some effort, you can get the Omega 3s you need through your diet.

If that seems like a lot of work for you, there are alternatives. You can take oral supplements, like fish oil capsules, but many people do not appreciate the aftertaste and after effects, particularly on their breath, that those capsules sometimes bring. This is one reason an Omega 3 skin patch is a wonderful alternative to oral supplements. Placed on the skin in a hairless, clean area, an Omega 3 patch transfers nutrients to your body transdermally, with no aftertaste or digestive issues. Our Omega 3 patches may be your answer to getting the Omega 3s you need.
