Do you want to enter your golden years being more healthy? A new study shows that having higher omega-3 levels are a good place to start.
“We found that higher blood levels of omega-3s from seafood were associated with a higher likelihood of healthy aging and also saw that people with the highest blood levels of omega-3s self-reported fish intake of about two servings per week,” lead author Heidi Lai, PhD, postdoctoral fellow, Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy, Tufts University, Boston, told theheart.org | Medscape Cardiology.”
“Higher serum levels of serum omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 PUFAs) are associated with healthy aging in adults, defined as survival without chronic disease, such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, lung disease, or severe chronic kidney disease, a new study suggests.”
This study only looked at omega-3 levels from people who are fish weekly. It would be interesting to see the effects of a good fish oil supplementation on these results.
