Wholeness - Benefits of Fish Oil

How to achieve Wholeness - Mind, Body and Soul in perfect balance


How are wholeness and yoga related?

Stella Weller, successful author of a number of yoga books, explains how smooth cognitive function (of the mind) plays an integral role in achieving the state of wholeness:

"The word yoga comes from Sanskrit, the language of ancient India. It means union, integration, or wholeness. It is an approach to health that promotes the harmonious collaboration of the human being's three components: body, mind and spirit."

That insight implies, since yoga and wholeness are basically one and the same thing, your cognitive function has big influence on how “whole” and balanced you feel.

How can Omega-3 boost cognitive function?

According to a groundbreaking study of the University of Pittsburg, fish oil supplements can improve the working memory of the human brain. In said study, the participants were given fish oil supplements for six months on regular basis intent to boost their omega-3 fatty acid intake. 

Rajesh Narendarn, project principal investigator and associate professor of radiology points out: “It is really interesting that diets enriched with omega-3 fatty acid can enhance cognition in highly functional young individuals”.

Can daily Fish Oil intake help with symptoms of depression?

The active ingredients in fish oil are two kinds of omega-3 fatty acids, namely DHA and EPA. Both types are proven to be beneficial:

DHA increases blood flow, reduces inflammation and toxic aggregation in the brain. In addition, adequate DHA levels can help with mellowing one’s mood and relieving symptoms of depression. 

“This is an important new finding that supports omega-3 for brain health,” states Dr. M. Fotuhi, chairman of the Neurology Institute for Brain Health and Fitness.

How does Fish Oil provide anti-aging effects?

Fish Oil helps to strengthen your nails, moisturizes your scalp and may prevent hair loss. 

Beautifying benefits aside, there are even more good news for women! Omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil are known to ease menstrual pain, may prevent osteoporosis and may also help to reduce the risk of breast cancer. Thus, women in particular will benefit from fish oil supplementation immensely.

What other benefits do fish oil supplements provide?

The omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil offer a wide array of benefits and are key to keep your overall health in balance. Adequate omega-3 levels can lower blood pressure and keep the cardiovascular system on a healthy track. 

Furthermore, omega-3 fatty acids also help reduce inflammation and may play a role in reducing the risk of chronic diseases like heart disease, cancer and arthritis.

Am I getting enough Omega-3?

The typical American diet doesn't contain enough omega-3 fatty acids, as discovered in an important UCLA study (published in the journal "Neurology" and featured on CNN). This finding is troublesome, since our bodies cannot make their own omega-3 fatty acids.

The International Society for Study of Fatty Acids and Lipids (ISSFAL) recommends a daily intake of 650 mg of combined EPA and DHA for adults. In addition to a healthy diet, fish oil supplements rich in essential omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, provide an easy and safe way to ensure healthy omega-3 levels at all times.

Which yoga poses are supporting cognitive function?

There are a variety of yoga techniques that boost cognitive functions of the brain. Most effective are inverted asanas because they increase the circulation of new blood into the brain, which improves the oxygen supply. With an increase of oxygen the brain will function more efficiently and thereby your cognitive functions will be enhanced and your nervous system will be calmed.

Inverted yoga poses will literally turn your world upside down! See our blog article about yoga for brain fitness.
