Key Nutrients for Optimal Heart & Brain Health

Feed your heart and brain with the right types of nutrients to promote cellular repair and regeneration. 

A key nutrient providing the necessary building blocks for optimal heart and brain health is Omega 3 essential fatty acids. 

Why is Omega 3 so essential for health? 

The membranes of your nerves, blood cells, blood vessels, and muscles are made up of fatty acid molecules. Omega 3 is a nutrient we must get in our daily diet. It cannot be manufactured by our body.  

The problem is one of balance. 

Omega 6 must be in 1:1 balance with Omega 3 for good health. Our diet determines whether our cells are balanced in these fatty acids. A century ago, the Omega 6 in our diet comprised .2% of our caloric intake, whereas today it has reached the dangerous level of around 20%. Add to that the decrease of Omega 3 in our diet due to current farming and production methods, and the 1:1 ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 becomes distorted, far too often as high as 20:1 or more. 

The result? 

Cancer, Heart Disease, Stroke, Alzheimer’s, Diabetes, Obesity, Cardiovascular Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Breast Cancer and ADHD are recognized as the top 10 diseases related to Omega 3 deficiency.
