Do you consider yourself to be generally healthy, but have a few extra pounds that you just can’t seem to get rid of? Even if you’re just mildly overweight, you may be affected by chronic inflammation in your blood vessels. This condition may put you at an increased risk for coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes, arthritis and Alzheimer’s disease.
However, there may be ways to reverse the thickening of arteries and veins. A new study published in the journal Brain, Behavior and Immunity reported that omega-3 fatty acids can lower the unwanted inflammation. These good fats can be consumed by taking a daily dose of an all-natural supplement by Dr. Newton’s Naturals, such as OmegaKrill.
“Omega-3 fatty acids may be both protective so that inflammation doesn’t go up, as well as therapeutic by helping inflammation go down,” said Jan Kiecolt-Glaser, the lead author of the study.
Omega-3 fatty acids aren’t just good for your circulatory system, as they are also essential for numerous functions that take place in the body, including the relaxation and contraction of muscles, digestion, fertility and cell growth, according to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine.
Krill may be tiny crustaceans, but they are a rich source of this fat. In fact, not only are they great for humans, but many marine mammals and fish also feed on them for nutrients.
