Health Nuggets: The Right Fats

Healthy Fat Intake Balances Omega 3 & Omega 6

Traditional diets rich in fish help maintain Omega 3 & 6 levels.

Traditional Diets that Include Fish Help Ensure Sufficient Omega 3 Intake

Dietary fat is a hot topic in natural health care and lifestyle improvement. Weight loss concerns point to fat intake as an inherent evil, while the dietary presence of fats believed to be harmful, such as trans-fats is coming under increasing scrutiny. Perhaps less frequently discussed is the importance of adding sufficient quantities of the right fats in the diet. The body cannot produce Omega 3 and 6, but they are absolutely required for the maintenance of good health. Sufficient intake may potentially limit serious medical concerns that are known to arise due to deficiencies in required fats. Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) maintain normal brain development and day to day function of the cells and organs. Omega 3 and Omega 6 compounds have different roles in maintaining body systems, and a balance between the two is required.

Omega 6 may increase inflammatory body responses, while Omega 3 reduces inflammation. You can read more about inflammation, which is not entirely a bad thing, in our latest full length article. Medical studies have indicated the so called “Mediterranean diets” with a balance of Omega 3 and 6 sources may play a role in reducing heart disease, while judicious use of Essential Fatty Acids may assist in the transmission of nerve impulses and cellular activity regulation through prostaglandin production. Studies indicate that Omega-3 fatty acids contained in fish oil reduce the LDL cholesterol and raises the good HDL cholesterol, with indications that cancerous conditions, inflammation and a vast range of symptoms ranging from dermatological, vision and mood problems may relate to Omega 3 deficiencies. EFAs are considered essential in maintaining healthy nerve functions, and inadequate intake could be a factor in some cases of depression.

Daily Health Nuggets: Stress Formula

 Stress  Formula & Management Tips – with Island Healthworks

Stress Formula from Island Healthworks aims to support brain and nervous system function

Stress Formula Recognizes that Stress & Physical Health are Interrelated.

Stress comes to us in the form of environmental pressures and inward responses. Some responses are programmed, while others reflect our state of mind, health or natural physical tendencies. Energy management starts with attention to lifestyle, preparation for challenging events, proper nutrition and an attitude that embraces relaxation. Herbal products may play an important role in controlling and adapting to change as well. Stress Formula, for example, contains a wide range of herbs that target nervous system function and promote relaxation, such as Hops and Valerian.

In a truly integrative approach, Stress Formula provides support to the adrenals as well as the nervous system, which contains highly important B complex vitamins and Vitamin C compounds. These nutrients offset stress and address underlying challenges by supporting the body. Stress can destroy, and the damaging effects must be kept in balance. STR-C contains ginseng and other muscle and mood relaxers, which may influence a broad range of health considerations. Quality Control is the standard that Island Healthworks always supports in our research and recommendations.
