The ongoing AREDS 2 clinical trial (Age Related Eye Disorder Study) is studying whether omega 3 fats, EPA and DHA, will slow disease progression for those with moderate macular degeneration. Levels of EPA (650mg) and DHA (350mg) are currently being examined for comprehensive protection for macular health. Essential fatty acids are a vital component of every human cell. The body needs essential fatty acids to balance hormones, insulate nerve cells, keep the skin and arteries supple and are also used to supply the body with energy. The body cannot manufacture essential fatty acids and they must be consumed either through dietary intake or through supplements. The Department of Health recommends that we should all double our intake of omega 3’s by eating oily fish (such as salmon) two to three times a week. But more and more research indicates that it is wise to supplement fatty acids and not to rely just on dietary intake. Omega 3 oils can reduce the risk of heart disease, circulatory problems such as varicose veins May help to decrease the risk of irregular heart rhythms (arrhythmias), reduce the possibility of harmful clots by reducing the clumping together of platelets Decrease the growth of fatty plaques that can fur up the arteries Help to lower blood pressure Reduce the levels of triglycerides (stores of fat) in the blood Omega 3 fatty acids help to reduce inflammation and painful joints in general.
