Health Notes

Omega-3s Protect Brain and Body

Omega-3s Protect Brain and Body
Omega-3s Protect Brain and Body: Main Image
Omega-3s may be one important option, as part of a balanced diet, to optimize your health
Research has suggested that omega-3s, as part of a balanced diet, support the health of both brain and body. A study in Nutrition Journal adds to this science and finds that middle-aged and older people who took a daily fish oil supplement improved brain performance and lowered risk factors for chronic disease.

Omega 3s may boost brain and lower risk

In this study, 40 healthy participants (ages 51 to 72 years) were randomly assigned to 3 grams of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid supplement from fish oil (1,500 mg of EPA, eicosapentaenoic acid, 1,050 mg of DHA, docosahexaenoic acid, and 450 unspecified), or placebo for five weeks. Both groups completed a placebo and supplement trial in this cross-over design. Brain performance and blood markers for chronic disease risk were measured at baseline and the end of the intervention.

Results showed that the omega-3s supplement group had mildly, but statistically significant, improved memory performance, lower triglycerides, and lower systolic blood pressure (the top number) by as much as 7 mm Hg, compared with the placebo group.

The study authors point out that people who are at higher risk for chronic diseases such as heart disease and type 2 diabetes may also be at higher risk for decline in brain function. They stress the importance of early dietary prevention to tackle both brain and body health and comment, "The dietary prevention strategy should preferably include fish in quantities to supply sufficient amounts of polyunsaturated fatty acids, in addition to other food groups with potential metabolic benefits e.g. whole grain, low glycemic index foods, fruits, berries, vegetables, and prebiotics."

The authors also comment that further studies are needed to understand the effects of omega-3s on brain function and the relationship to risk factors for disease.

Choose wisely for better brain and body health

Omega-3s for health. Omega-3s, commonly found in fatty fish such as salmon and mackerel, are important for brain function and many other functions in our body, and may work to promote health because of their anti-inflammatory effects, according to the study authors. The authors point out that research has linked chronic inflammation to poorer brain function, and low-grade chronic inflammation has also been linked to the development of diseases such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Omega-3s may be one important option, as part of a balanced diet, to optimize your health.

Healthy lifestyle habits for prevention. Remember it's not only about what you eat, but all of your lifestyle habits combined that help you prevent disease and keep your memory intact. Regular exercise-at least 20 minutes three times a week-has also been shown to boost brain function and lower the risk for chronic disease. Engaging in social activities and keeping your mind stimulated also adds health benefits as we age.

Talk with a doctor. If you are interested in taking supplements, talk with a doctor about the risks and benefits and what supplements may be best for you based on your age and medical history.

        My son was looking forward to purchasing this item. We drove to several stores before finding it in stock. Unfortunately, it is cheaply made and broke after only five uses. The tape simply ripped from the tab...and the tape itself disappeared inside the unit. A waste of money from start to finish. Very disappointed.

              This tape was used to measure multiple body parts - chest, arms, waist, hips, thighs, calves once a week for 3 months. The device then broke and was not repairable. Not worth the spend. I purchased it specifically because I could find it at a local GNC store - I should have ordered online from another source and waited it out. Junk...

                Comments about GNC BODY TAPE MEASURE:

                The button on the product hardly works to retract the tape. The tape tends to measure you as smaller than you really are because it constricts the body part when retracted. Additionally, for measurements such as shoulders, it makes it even more difficult to measure than it normally is.

                    Comments about GNC BODY TAPE MEASURE:

                    I was really hoping to get a good tape measure to track changes in my measurements since I'm trying to get healthier and lose weight. I purchased this one in a local GNC store. Unfortunately, I pulled the tape measure out of the package, pulled the tape out to test it on my forearm and it wouldn't retract at all. This one was broken straight out of the package. The product seemed cheap (in quality). Hopefully this was just a defective tape measure but I don't plan to get a second one to find out. I'll be finding another brand.

                    Worked as it should, but the tape ripped too easily, so it didn't last. They should make a stronger material for the tape. That's the only gripe I have about it.

                      Comments about GNC BODY TAPE MEASURE:

                      My husband gave this to me as a gift when I started selling "skinny wraps" so I could measure results.

                      I have only used it a few times but the pin on the tape end is large and barely fits into the holder. Thus it tends to get stuck and difficult to pull out.

                      After only a few uses the tape measure has started to tear away from the pin, thus negating the convient usefulness of the product. When I used it the first time I did recommend it to others, but at this point I can't in good faith.

                        Comments about GNC BODY TAPE MEASURE:

                        I bought this tape measure because I wanted to start measuring my progress as I transition into a build phase. I have tried to measure myself with a regular, sewing-style tape measure, but they are very hard to use effectively on yourself, particularly for arms. This product, however, is VERY easy to use and makes all measurement taking a breeze. It's compact and won't unravel when you put it in storage.

                        The only con is that it doesn't feel very robust, which doesn't inspire confidence in me about the spring inside (since it self-rewinds). I guess I'll find out how durable it is, but at least it wasn't expensive in case it does break. Worth the purchase though especially since I won't be using it every day.

                          It's easy to use and I can easily measure myself quickly. The only problem I had is the end of the measuring tape broke off, probably because I pulled too hard on it. I would still recommend this product, just treat it with care and don't pull so hard.
