Is Omega Fatty Acid Ratio the Key?

From eNewsletter 10/12/2022

DID YOU KNOW that Circulation just published sobering figures, stating 80% of people in the U.S. have below-optimal cardiovascular health? Levels were calculated after applying the American Heart Association's Life's Essential 8™ cardiovascular health scoring to measure heart and brain health from more than 23,400 adults over a five year period. An astounding number given the emphasis placed on using statin medication to lower risk over the last two decades. Below you will find ways to optimize your cardiovascular health, backed by copious research.

Improve Your Fatty Acid Ratio

Steve: One simple way to improve upon the deplorable state of hearth health in the U.S. is to better balance our omega-6:omega-3 fatty acid ratio. While the ratio should be 2:1, more often than not it is 18:1 or more for most Americans. The only two ways this can be fixed is by minimizing omega-6 consumption and increasing omega-3. Fish and fish oil supplements are one sure-fire way to bring up omega-3 levels. The following highlights their incredible benefits. This is in addition to the incredible American Journal of Clinical Nutrition study from early September lauding the inflammatory-reducing, fish-oil derived, highly concentrated Metagenics SPM Active. Overall Heart Health A study from Clinical Nutrition suggests higher concentrations of marine-derived omega-3 fatty acid biomarkers were associated with a significantly reduced risk of total cardiovascular disease, congenital heart disease, and total mortality. Lipids A study from The Journal of Nutrition found that fish oil reduced total triglycerides, maintained HDL, reduced systolic blood pressure, and shifted the HDL particle distribution toward a favorable cardioprotective profile in healthy older adults without dyslipidemia. COVID-19 Habitual fish oil supplementation is associated with a lower risk of hospital admission and mortality with COVID-19 in the population with more than 12.1 years of follow-up, as reported in Medrxiv. Fish Oil Injections Injecting forms of omega-3 fatty acids directly into the bloodstream shows promise in treating stroke and other conditions, according to Harvard researchers. Dementia and Other Autoimmune Disease Intake of fish oil supplements was associated with lower risk of all-cause dementia among 60-73 year elders, according to a study from Clinical Nutrition. Research presented at the American College of Rheumatology annual meeting found supplementation for 5 years with vitamin D3 and omega-3 fatty acids reduced incident autoimmune disease by 25-30% in older adults versus those who received neither supplement. Attention DHA, a component of fish oil, is associated with a greater capacity for selective and sustained attention in adolescents, according to a new study from European Child & Adolescent Psychiatry.
