We hear about staying away from fatty foods from doctors and the news. However, there’s one type of fat you don’t want to cut back on: omega fatty acids (EFAs). There are 3 kinds of omega fatty acids –ALA, EPA and DHA. Not only does your body need these fatty acids to function, but also they have big health benefits. Omega-3s are “essential” fatty acids because the body isn’t capable of producing them on its own. Therefore, we must rely on omega-3 foods in our diet or supplementing to supply these extremely beneficial compounds.
Alzheimer’s disease has risen to be the fourth leading cause of death behind cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. However, Alzheimer’s is often not listed as a contributing factor on death certificates. Research on Alzheimer’s and has found that there may be a link between cholesterol and the increase of people with the disease. One out of every two Americans that reach the age of 70 have a 50 percent chance of getting Alzheimer’s in their remaining lifetime. Since senile dementia is often diagnosed as Alzheimer’s disease, there is truth behind these claims. Although a decrease in cholesterol may cause senile dementia, or Alzheimer’s, the symptoms could be reversed by consuming certain nutrients.
