BENEFITS OF FISH OIL COMES INTO QUESTION
The use of fish oils has rapidly increased in recent years however recent research brings into question whether it provides the same benefit as eating the real thing. Local research showed that customers are being short changed on the amount of omega-3 fatty acids in the capsules and said that those who wanted to ensure good levels of omega-3 should simply eat fish. Meanwhile international research has questioned whether fish oils are actually effective in lowering the risk of heart attacks and strokes.
Seafood's place as a super food reaffirmed!
A report released this week reaffirms seafood’s place as a superior and essential food in our diet. The report, by dietician Amanda Johnson, includes a comprehensive review of the scientific literature relevant to seafood and health and explains why and how including seafood in our diets can assist at all stages of our lives. The research suggests a link between eating seafood and brain development in children. In adults eating seafood regularly helps to reduce the risk of cardio vascular disease, particularly sudden cardiac death.
The dieticians suggest that there is strong evidence that eating at least two fish meals a week along with other dietary modifications and lifestyle changes such as the stopping of smoking will protect against heart disease. Amanda Johnson comments that fish provides an excellent package of nutrients, including protein, omega-3, fatty acids common, B vitamins, iron, zinc, selenium and iodine. To read the report here.
