Key Nutrient SHEILDS You from the Damage of Stress!
Being in the midst of a global pandemic, this past year has been particularly stressful.
And that means that even if you never get COVID-19, your health could be in jeopardy.
You see, stress wreaks havoc on your body.
It can lead to mental issues like depression and anxiety, and physical ones like high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity, and diabetes.
It can also put you on the fast track to aging.
Fortunately, there’s a powerful nutrient that can SHIELD you from the negative effects of stress.
A study published in the journal Molecular Biology included 138 people between 40 and 85 who were at risk of accelerated aging because they were all sedentary, obese, and middle-aged.
They were divided into three groups, taking either 2.5 grams of omega-3s daily, 1.25 grams of omega-3s, or a placebo.
After four months, the individuals took math and speech tests that are known to produce an inflammatory stress response in the body.
It turns out that the group taking the higher dose of omega-3s had less damage to their bodies caused by stress!
This was seen by 19 percent lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol, and 33 percent lower levels of a pro-inflammatory protein.
And because the higher dose was more protective than the lower dose, this indicates that there’s a direct relationship between omega-3s and stress protection.
Researchers theorized that omega-3s help protect the parts of your cells that often shrink with age, in part due to stress.
Other studies have also shown the benefits of higher doses of omega-3s.
And one particular recent study showed that people with higher levels of omega-3s were 18 percent less likely to show signs of unhealthy aging.
They were also more likely to live longer, healthier lives.
The best way to load up on omega-3s is by eating seafood.
You can also add in a supplement. Just make sure you’re taking a high enough dose.
Otherwise, you’re likely just wasting your money.
