Green lipped mussel extract contains all the Omega 3 fatty acids our body needs. Many people know that taking this extract can considerably reduce arthritis pain. They also assume that if you do not have arthritis then you do not need to take this marine oil or extract.
Are you aware of the fact about how little our intake of Omega 3 really is? On average we take in about 130mg a day. There are a multitude of reasons why we need to take in much more.
It is well known that people can get some Omega 3 from plant foods. But that Omega3 only contains ALA – Alpha-linolenic-acid. But we also need DHA and EPA. And these are only found in deep sea, cold water, fatty fish, and in the green lipped mussel.
Why does everybody need green lipped mussel extract?
- Brain Health
Omega 3 DHA – Docosahexaenoic Acid is needed by the brain for development and maintenance. Studies have shown that children suffering from ADHD become less frustrated when taking Omega 3. Studies are ongoing to find out if Omega 3 will prevent, or at least slow down the development of Alzheimer Disease.
A deficiency of Omega 3 can cause depression, obesity, anxiety, mood swings, and even violence.
- Cardiovascular Health
DHA/EPA -Eicosapentaenoic acid together can lower the risk for heart attacks and strokes. They can help control cholesterol levels. Also, they may prevent the abnormal formation of blood clots, called thrombosis. The blood clots can cause heart attacks, strokes and pulmonary problems.
The retina in our eyes needs DHA. Studies are being made to see if taking green lipped mussel extract can prevent, or slow down macular degeneration.
Because Omega 3 is an anti-inflammatory it does have a positive effect not only on Arthritis, but on any disorder accompanied by inflammation. People suffering from IBD seem to get relief by using the extract of the green lipped mussel.
People with asthma claim that they can breathe better when taking quality Omega 3 capsules.
- Immune System
The Omega 3 from the green lipped mussel will boost our immune system.
These are just some of the benefits of Omega 3 essential fatty acids.
We take in an average of 130mg of Omega 3 daily.
If you have had a heart attack, or are at a high risk of having one, this 130mg is only 15% of what you really need.
If you are a healthy person this 130mg is still only 20% of what you should take in daily.
Green lipped mussel extract has a high concentration of DHA/EPA and can ensure a person is getting the amount they need for a healthier life.
