Why are Omega’s good for me?
Every cell in your body uses omega fatty acids — and healthy cells make healthy people!
Omegas control or modulate an amazing number of cellular processes. Omega fatty acids regulate a large number of mechanisms including increasing the fluidity of cell membranes and improving their “gate-keeping” abilities. These mechanisms help keep harmful toxins out and bring healthy nutrients into your cells. Omega fatty acids also influence the activation of cell genes, act as second messengers and produce good eicosanoids. These hormone-like compounds help reduce inflammation in the body, help keep blood from clotting, and help keep your blood vessels dilated. Furthermore, a diet rich in omegas can be beneficial against many diseases.
