Removing Circulation Problems with Fish Oil
By: Larry L. Taylor

Is removing circulation problems with fish oil, a source of omega-3 fatty acids, one of the possible benefits? Of all of the health benefits associated with omega-3 fish oil supplements, those to the circulatory system are the best known and the most documented. Here are the facts.

Fish oils are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential to human health. The body uses them to make cellular membranes, hormones and to transport fat-soluble nutrients. Unlike some types of dietary fats, which clog the arteries and wreak havoc on the circulatory system, omega-3s are good fats.

You may have heard about the difference between good (HDL) cholesterol and bad (LDL) cholesterol. Cholesterol in the bloodstream is composed of fat and alcohol. Eating certain fatty foods causes cholesterol levels to rise, which is bad for the heart and the circulatory system. But, some types of dietary fat contribute to the production of good HDL cholesterol, which carries away the bad and helps to lower total fats in the bloodstream.

Increasing dietary intake of omega-3 fats increases HDL levels and lowers total triglycerides, which is why removing circulation problems with fish oil may be a possibility. But, that’s not the only reason.

When the blood is thick and the platelets stick together, clots can form. Those clots can cause varicose veins, heart attacks and stroke. In people with diabetes, clots can cut off the blood supply to nerve endings in the extremities and other parts of the body, which results in death of the nerves.

Doctors call it diabetic neuropathy. It can cause numbness in the feet and hands, lead to blindness, damage the heart and other bodily organs, because of reduced blood flow.

Removing circulation problems with fish oil is possible because it prevents the formation of blood clots. It has "anti-coagulant" activity. It has been recommended for people that are at risk for a heart attack and for those that have already suffered from one.

Its anti-coagulant activity is similar to that of aspirin, but without the aspirin side effects. In some cases, doctors recommend both aspirin and fish oil, in hopes of further increasing blood flow.

Research has shown that omega-3 supplementation relaxes the arterial walls, which improves blood flow and reduces blood pressure. The nutrients help prevent inflammation of the arterial walls, which plays a role in atherosclerosis and heart disease, in general.

If you are interested in removing circulation problems with fish oil, it is safe to give it a try. 1000mg gel caps are the best choice. Of that 1000mg, at least 500 should be omega-3 fatty acids and at least 250 or half of that should be DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid). Studies have shown that DHA has a greater effect than the more common EPA (Eicosapentaenoic acid) on HDL cholesterol levels and high triglycerides.

So, those are the facts about removing circulation problems with fish oil, rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Doctors around the world are suggesting the supplements for their patients. It’s definitely a worthwhile investment in your health.
