More good news about omega-3’s and heart health!

Omega 3 capsules

Writing in the November 1, 2005 issue of Circulation, the journal published by the American Heart Association, researchers presented a study showing that daily supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids can reduce the risk of fatal cardiac events in high-risk patients. The benefits are seen as lowered risk of unstable or erratic heart beat, specifically ventricular tachycardia (VT) arrhythmias in which the heart beats too quickly, or ventricular fibrillation (VF) arrhythmias in which the heart quivers ineffectively. Maintaining stable and efficient heart rhythm is obviously important at any age, but in older age groups such cardiac events are becoming increasingly more frequent. Looking for safer alternatives to drug therapies and their related side effects, the researchers wrote, “If the present data are confirmed, these (omega-3) fatty acids may also be recommended as a less toxic alternative to usual antiarrhythmic drugs to prevent recurrent episodes of VT/VF”.

About Nutrients that keep blood pressure normal

In an effort to draw attention to the dramatic increases in chronic disease world-wide, the World Health Organization (WHO) in its report, “Preventing Chronic Disease - A Vital Investment”, pointed that chronic disease, world-wide, is increasing faster than the rate of population growth! In 2005, 60% of all deaths, about 35 million, were attributed to chronic disease. By 2015, they expect that number to rise by 17% to 41 million! One of these chronic diseases is cardiovascular disease - a disease linked to high blood pressure, which the WHO reports kills an estimated 17 million people worldwide every year. At the root of this problem is poor nutrition. Many people are just not consuming foods with sufficient levels of nutrients capable of helping our bodies fight off diseases and keep us healthy. As a way to help people improve their diet and reduce incidences of chronic diseases (particularly those linked to high blood pressure), we decided to write this blog in an attempt to highlight nutrients that are important in maintaining normal blood pressure levels. We have also included research findings to back our claims. Also featured are dietary supplements that contain the essential nutrients in much higher levels than those found in ordinary food for best results. Feel free to leave your comments or contact us in case you have any queries. Also kindly support our cause by buying any of the featured dietary supplements.
