Omega 3

1 2

These fats are imperative to our diet. Human body is incapable of synthesizing them, so they must be obtained through food. Some of the health benefits of Omega 3 include reduced cholesterol, blood pressure, and inflammation, as well as improved cognitive function and mood. Omega 3 is derived from the fatty layers of coldwater fish, fish oil is rich in the long chain of omega 3 fatty acids eicosapentanoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).  In a perfect world, we would all be getting enough omega-3 fatty acids in our diet. In reality most people don’t, so the best way to assure a proper intake is by taking supplements in either liquid or capsule form.

Resveratrol Here is a curious fact, French eat more fat, sugar and rich foods, plus drink more wine, but still have less heart health issues comparing to health cautious Americans. How is that possible? The answer to this puzzling question, known as the “French Paradox,” is believed to be due to a higher intake of a specific phytonutrient called resveratrol, found naturally in “superfoods” like red wine. Resveratrol is a powerful compound that regenerates the body all the way at the cellular level. Research published over the past several decades in many medical journals, including the  American Journal of Hypertension, found that resveratrol decreases the risk of heart disease among other common health concerns. In case you’re wondering, you don’t have to be a wine drinker to benefit from resveratrol. Other sources include deeply-colored berries and real dark chocolate/cacao. Along with helping keep arteries clear from plaque buildup and protecting an aging heart, this phytonutrient can also help reduce inflammation, prevent obesity and protect cognitive health among elders.

CoQ10 Short for coenzyme q10

CoQ10 is an essential element for many daily functions and is required by every single cell in the body. As an antioxidant that protects cells from the effects of aging, CoQ10 has been used in medical practices for decades, especially in the case of treating heart problems. Still today, one of the most common and thoroughly researched uses of CoQ10 is helping protect the heart and blood vessels from the damaging effects of oxidative stress. Many consumers turn to CoQ10 supplements to help manage health conditions, including heart arrhythmia, high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, atherosclerosis and congestive heart failure. Research shows that patients with other inflammatory health conditions, such as breast cancer, diabetes, viruses and infertility, may also find these supplements helpful for both preventions of complications and treatment of symptoms.

Chlorophyll Chlorophyll is linked to natural cancer prevention, it blocks carcinogenic effects within the body and protects DNA from damage caused by toxic molds. Chlorophyllin supplements are believed to help neutralize oxidants, which means they effectively decrease oxidative damage caused by factors like a poor diet, chemical carcinogens, UV light exposure and radiation. This component has another surprising benefit. It seems to help promote weight loss by controlling appetite hormones and improving obesity-related risk factors, all without the scary side effects of most commercial weight-loss supplements. As you probably know, chlorophyll is produced by plants but cannot be synthesized by a human body. It has to be derived from our diet or supplements. Try adding a few drops of liquid chlorophyll to a glass of water once or twice a day. It will turn your water bright green although, rest assured, it doesn’t taste as bad as it might look. Aside of other benefits it could also give you a little boost of energy when sipped throughout the day.
