The healthy oil in fish makes it an essential part of every diet.
Not everybody likes fish, but the truth is that we are missing out on so many health benefits without it. The most important part is the beneficial oils. Taking fish oil supplements can provide the same benefits to individuals who are unable to consume fish on a regular basis.
What is it?
Salmon is one of the best sources of omega 3 fatty acids and it is rich in eicosapentaenoic (EPA) and docosahexaenoic (DHA) fatty acids, which bestow many amazing health benefits to the body. Omega 3 reduces the risk of heart disease and promotes healthy skin and it can help to control the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis.
How does it work?
Omega 3 fatty acids may help to reduce the risk of heart disease and promote healthy skin. They are also used along with diet and exercise to help lower triglyceride and to raise levels of “good” cholesterol (HDL). This product may also be used to help treat high blood pressure or rheumatoid arthritis.
How to take it
Take 1 X 1000mg Manna Omega 3 soft gel three times per day with meals. This dosage will provide you with all the health benefits of salmon oil.
Benefits of Omega 3
- Helps to lower levels of ‘bad’ cholesterol
- Improves levels of ‘good’ cholesterol
- May Improve heart health
- Helps to improves joint pain
- Could reduce blood pressure
- Improves brain function
- Known to prevent prostate cancer
The omega 3 in salmon oil can improve cardiovascular health by suppressing the action of NFkB, which is a pro-inflammatory gene. This is because the inflammatory effects of this gene are responsible for causing heart disease. EPA and DHA fatty acids can also lower blood triglyceride levels, which contribute to cardiovascular heart disease. The fatty acids also improve the healthy function of blood vessels, while lowering your blood pressure. The consumption of salmon oil will therefore greatly reduce heart disease and heart attacks.
More benefits of omega 3 fatty acids
- Omega 3 fatty acids are also useful in alleviating the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis. This is due to their anti-inflammatory effects.
- DHA fatty acid can further improve brain cell communication since it forms an essential part of the cell membranes of brain cells.
How safe is it?
Despite being a safe option compared to other fish oils, salmon oil can potentially cause side effects. This is because excessive consumption of 3 omega fatty acids can have negative effects on your health, such as thinning of blood and the risk of excessive bleeding. This is especially if you are taking blood-thinning drugs.
Hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients Fishy aftertaste, nausea, bloating, or burping may occur.
Can I use it with my current medication?
You can use the Omega 3 Salmon oil with any other medication, except blood thinning medication, because the product can cause blood to become too thin.
Who can use Omega 3 Salmon oil?
The product is regarded as safe for any person to use. However, consult your paediatrician before you give your infant or toddler any dietary supplements. We recommend not giving this soft gel capsules to children younger than 5 years of age, because of the size of the product.
Children need very small amounts of omega-3 fatty acids, and an overdose can cause excessive bleeding, low blood pressure, or nausea, among other side effects. Always follow the dosage instructions on the packaging or your paediatrician’s instructions exactly to avoid an accidental overdose.
