“The fatty acids EPA and DHA are believed to reduce symptoms of dyslexia, ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), and other learning, behavior, and coordination disorders in children,” she added.
She reminded women to get their daily omega-3, as studies have shown that fatty acids in fish oil can improve skin barrier function, prevent UV-induced inflammation and hyperpigmentation, reduce itching and dry skin, and aid skin wound healing.
“Women are generally more likely to develop osteoporosis than men because women tend to have smaller and thinner bones. In addition, when women reach menopause, the risk increases due to the levels of estrogen, which protects the bones.
“The 2010 Nutritional Guidelines for Americans recommend that adults get 8 or more ounces of oily fish per week, at least 250 mg / day of omega-3, as this value has been shown to maintain healthy bones,” she said.
Teoh said a study by the Association for International Cancer Research found that a regular dose of omega-3 consumption boosts the skin’s immunity to sunlight. It reduces immunosuppression, which interrupts the body’s ability to fight infections and skin cancer. Therefore, omega-3 fish oils help protect against skin cancer.
Studies have also shown that omega-3 fatty acids can benefit seniors, including a reduced risk of Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, other states of mental deterioration, and possibly age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
