The Power of Fish:
New research shows why eating

Fish (or Flax Seed Oil) is a great way to staying
Why is every nutritionist raving about the
health benefits of eating fish? The first
reason is the omega-3 fatty acids found in
abundance in fish. What is the benefit of
omega-3 fatty acids? Harvard and others
have documented that omega-3 is
associated with a lowered risk for heart
What are the healthiest fish to eat? It is
generally agreed that cold water fish are
packed with omega-3’s, including these
types of fish:

  • Salmon
  • Mackerel
  • Tuna
  • Lake trout
  • Sardines (yuck!)**Also the plant version for omegas is FLAX SEED OIL
    which anyone can eat on a daily basis with cereal or yogurt.
    I’ve  read some controversy over
    so-called “farm raised fish.” It was alleged
    that farm raised fish are not as healthy so beware of that
    when you purchase your fish. I’ll continue to monitor this, in
    case new information becomes available. Also be aware that some
    certain research talks about eating too much fish could cause
    your body to have increased levels of heavy metal such as mercury that can
    be detrimental to your health.  This is also why plant sources of these omegas or supplements are
    suggested in addition to eating fish.
  • The second reason to eat fish… is
    because it might make you emotionally
    happier. There is new evidence published
    in the American Journal of Psychiatry that
    suggests that an omega-3 acid called “EEPA”
    prevents clinical depression. Six of
    10 patients taking a fish-oil supplement noted

    a 50% reduction in their depression levels.

  • My advice: Combining chiropractic with
    a great diet is the path to a disease free life.
    Eat fish (or Flax Seed oil) for good health – and it might just
    put a smile on your face!

    yours in health,
