The cause of the predominant number of deaths are cardiovascular diseases, which are more common in women than in men. For this reason, studies are being conducted in which specialists try to determine how the lifestyle and diet of endangered people can be changed to ensure a healthier and longer life.
What is the omega 3 index?
The omega 3 index was created during research conducted by Dr. William Harris, which concerned the correlation of fatty acids and the condition of the cardiovascular system. The omega 3 index determines the amount of omega 3, EPA and DHA fatty acids in red blood cells, which is closely related to the risk of heart disease.
Studies have shown that the level of omega 3 is inversely related to the risk of heart, brain, mood disorders and inflammation. Thus, the high level of this indicator is beneficial for health. People who consume adequate amounts of good fish oil actively support general health and counteract cardiovascular diseases.
Increasing the omega-3 index and keeping it constant is a real way of reducing the risk of many diseases. The best sources of omega 3 fatty acids are mainly fish, especially “oily”. The two most important omega 3 fatty acids are EPA and DHA. The important information is that omega 3 fatty acids from linseed oil (alpha-linolenic acid, ALA) have little effect on the omega 3 level. Alpha-linolenic acid has other important health benefits, but it is not an effective substitute for EPA and DHA. To make sure that the levels of the omega 3 indicator remain in a favorable range, they should be checked every six months.
