BENEFITS OF OMEGA 3’S & THE EFFECTS IT HAS ON YOUR BODY BY DR. JOSEPH KEPKO

EPA and DHA are collectively known as Omega-3 lipids. They are important for cell membrane construction. Every cell (brain cells, liver cells, muscle, etc ) in your body require omega-3’s. In order for cell membranes to function correctly, they require at least 8% EPA and DHA to act like gatekeepers to keep out the bad components from the environment and to keep in the good components inside the cell wall. Omega-3 also act as a natural anti-inflammatory and support joint health which is crucial in the body building world. When it comes to brain health, DHA crosses the blood brain barrier and is the precursor compounds for neurotransmitters. Improving neurotransmitters improves thinking ability, improves sleep, improves focus & can even negate symptoms of depression. Breaking down what these lipids can do aesthetically, they’re also known to improve skin, hair and nail strength and quality. EPA is important for endothelial function to keep blood vessels elastic.Weather you’re a professional athlete or someone who just wants to take care of themselves, Omega 3’s are an essential part of your daily routine.
