Lower Risk of Early Death with Greater Omega 3 Intake August 13 2018

Every day I get this question, "What's the most important supplement to take every day to protect my health?" Most people are surprised by my answer... Pure Omega 3, if I'm limited to just one. BUT, I can't limit myself to just one supplement. Are you kidding? That's like asking Kim Kardashian to use just one cosmetic item :) It can't be done!

I have one each (at least) of these supplements with me at all times. I have them with me when I travel, and I even have them at my lakehouse retreat. While I do feel exhausted this time of year, I don't think I would be able to get out of bed or function without them. That's why I refer to these as Daily Essential Supplements. Our bodies require them, so it's crucial that we supply them for our body every day.

I refer to these as my core because they are the base I build off of, even while working to stay healthy, lean, and spiritually strong. 

I take all of these as soon as I get up. They are my Survival Cocktail :)

Of course, I take Lean Sleep and Daily Joint Recovery & Repair, as I'm finding 50-years-old requires a little more maintenance. Make no mistake, fat loss supplements are mixed in, but for today, we'll stay focused on Daily Essentials.

Why is staying on top of your daily essentials, especially Omega 3, so important? Studies have shown it to provide a lower risk of mortality! Need I say more?

A study reported less than a month ago, on July 18, 2018, in the Journal of Internal Medicine reveals a lower risk of dying from any cause during a 16-year follow-up period among men and women who had a high intake of fish or long-chain omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), which include EPA, DHA, and DPA (as in LynFit Pure Omega 3).

Among men, those whose daily intake of fish was among the top 20 percent, had a 9 percent lower risk of dying during follow-up than men whose intake was among the lowest 20 percent. Women, whose consumption of fish was among the highest, had a risk of dying during follow-up that was 8 percent lower than those whose consumption was among the lowest.

For men whose intake of omega-3 fatty acids placed them among the highest 20 percent, the risk of mortality from any cause was 11percent lower than the risk experienced by men whose intake was among the lowest 20 percent. Similarly, women who were among the top 20 percent of omega-3 consumers had a 10 percent lower risk.

When the risk of death from specific diseases was analyzed, men who had the highest intake of omega-3s experienced a 15 percent lower risk of dying from cardiovascular disease, and for women in the top group, the risk was 18 percent lower.

Greater omega-3 fatty acid intake was significantly associated with a lower risk of mortality due to respiratory disease and Alzheimer's disease in men and women, and with a lower risk of chronic liver disease and cancer in men. Meeting the recommended intake of at least 250 milligrams of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA per day was associated with a 13 percent lower risk of mortality among men and a 7 percent lower risk among women during follow-up in comparison with having an intake that was less than 50 milligrams per day.

A further study, published in the Journal of Clinical Lipidology revealed a lower risk of mortality during a seven-year median in association with having a higher level of omega-3 fatty acids. This study concluded that meeting the recommended intake of omega 3 fatty acids led to a 39 percent lower risk of cardiovascular disease, a 42 percent lower risk of coronary heart disease, and a 55 percent lower risk of stroke. There was a 47 percent lower risk of death from causes other than cancer and cardiovascular disease among those whose Omega-3 Index values were among the highest, suggesting that EPA and DHA have other beneficial actions in the body than preventing plaque buildup.

Now you see why I said, if I had to choose just one, Pure Omega 3 would be the most important daily essential supplement I'd take. With facts like that to back it up, a person would be putting their mortality at a major disadvantage by not supplementing with omega 3!

I hope you're having great summer, recharging your body, mind, and most importantly your spirits. Begin. Believe. Put It Into God's Hands!
