Your body depends on you to take care of it – to exercise regularly, to get plenty of sleep, to hydrate and to eat nutritious foods. If you don’t think fat is part of a healthy diet for women; you’re mistaken. Essential Fats, Omega-3s EPA and DHA promote womens health throughout every life stage –from pregnancy, infancy and childhood to young adult and into the senior years. When you hear news studies about the health benefits of omega-3 fats, they are usually referring to EPA and DHA – the essential fatty acids.
ESSENTIAL TO GOOD HEALTH
The really important fatty acids are the “Essential fatty acids” considered “essential”as the body cannot make them and therefore they must be obtained daily through diet or supplementation. The best source of omega-3 is oily fish (sardines, salmon, anchovies, fresh tuna and mackerel). Oily fish provides the most beneficial and active fatty acids, commonly referred to as EPA and DHA. Surprisingly, a massive 89% of Irish people are not consuming sufficient oily fish in their diet, so often there is a need to supplement with a good quality omega-3 product. Omega-3 fatty acids are the building blocks of every living cell in the human body. They are absolutely necessary for normal health and development. Without them, cells can’t function, renew, or maintain themselves properly. Omega 3s support brain, eye, and heart health throughout life.
BALANCE YOUR HORMONES, BALANCE YOUR MOOD!
Many women endure abdominal discomfort and cramps every month, a condition known in medical terms as dysmenorrhea. It is caused by strong contractions of the uterus triggered by prostaglandins (chemicals in the body involved with pain and inflammation). Studies have found that omega-3, well known for its anti-inflammatory properties, can help to soothe this menstrual pain. And if that wasn’t enough, there is also evidence that omega-3 can ease PMS also. Eskimo Brain 369 contains high levels of omega-3 as well as evening primrose oil, so its the ideal formula to bring hormonal fluctuations under control and stabilise your mood.
NOURISH YOUR SKIN, HAIR AND NAILS
Glowing, hydrated skin: Omega-3s support a healthy skin inflammatory response which is greatly a positive aspect for clearer skin. These are just one reason, among many, why we love Omega-3 and the wonderful benefits it has on our skin. Fatty acids can act as natural moisturizers that revitalize dry skin from the inside out.
Shiny, nearly silky hair is typically what most women strive for but aren’t sure how to achieve these beautiful locks. For healthy, shiny hair, you need proper nutrition. Omega-3 fatty acids nourish your hair follicles for stronger, shinier hair that grows faster, and your nails will also become stronger and less brittle.
VITAL FOR PERFORMANCE AND EXERCISE RECOVERY
Omega-3 also plays an important role in thinning the blood and reducing inflammation throughout the body — in the blood vessels, the joints and elsewhere. By reducing inflammation, you can shorten your recovery time by reducing soreness and stiffness after a workout. Omega-3s play a pivotal role in mental performance, and they support better concentration and focus.
BRAIN POWER – FUEL YOUR BRAIN
It’s no surprise that omega-3 is so beneficial to brain health. The importance of these fatty acids becomes most obvious when they’re lacking. People who don’t get enough omega-3s in their diet can become demotivated, disinterested, forgetful and may experience low mood, while serious deficiency can lead to an increased risk of developing conditions such as ADD, dyslexia, depression and alzheimers. Whether you are doing exams or just looking to increase brain power, Eskimo Brain 3.6.9 will get you focused in no time.
HOW MUCH DO I NEED?
Studies show that you need 250mg DHA daily to support brain health. Eating oily fish twice a week – such as salmon or sardines, provides a healthy dose of omega-3 EPA/DHA. Not a fish fan, you can choose a high quality fish oil supplement such as Eskimo Brain 3.6.9. Check your preferred supplement to see that you are getting adequate DHA, as often supplements can fall short. You can purchase Eskimo-3 here.
“I have used Eskimo-3 fish oils over the past year and have found them unbelievably beneficial. My mum introduced them to me for exams, and while at first I was reluctant, I was extremely grately and tried them. Within 1-2 days I felt sharper and more focused. After a few weeks, my skin was smooth and clear, which I also attribute to the product. It is a natural, affordable and an amazing product which I have recommended to friends.”Claire Breen, Dublin
