Omega 3 fatty acids – an old dog with new tricks!

Omega 3 fatty acids may be beneficial for more than just the heart. Researchers at the Indiana University School of Medicine have found at a molecular level a potential therapeutic benefit from these dietary supplements for treating alcohol abuse and psychiatric disorders.

Omega 3 fatty acids are known to be good for one’s health, good for one’s brain, and lack major side-effects, as opposed to some psychiatric medications, he said. Perhaps, he said, omega 3 fatty acid could in the future be used as an adjuvant treatment to minimize the amount of psychiatric drugs needed to produce the same effect, especially in pregnant women or women who intend to get pregnant.

Do you know that there is a recommended ratio for the Omega fatty acids? Or some of the naturally occurring ways to include more of the Omegas in your diet?  Or that not all supplement types are created equal?

All of this and much much more is included in Wellness Wisdom – a reference book for natural and holistic health.
