THIS Nutrient STOPS Heart Disease at Its Source
I’m a big fan of omega-3 fatty acids.
They help protect your brain, improve eye health, fight inflammation – and they are GREAT at protecting your heart.
But these healthy fats have a little-known, often-overlooked cousin that deserves its time in the spotlight…
Especially now that research shows this powerful nutrient can prevent the root cause of heart disease.
I’m talking about another type of healthy unsaturated fat called omega-6s.
Science has already revealed that these unsaturated fats promote immune health and blood clotting. They also help regulate your genes.
Now, according to the latest research, they can also help stave off heart disease.
A recent study examined that impact of omega-6s on your arteries. This is important because when your arteries become stiff and narrow – a condition called atherosclerosis – it drastically increases your risk of having a heart attack or stroke.
In fact, according to some estimates, hard arteries are responsible for one out of every three deaths.
Could omega-6s help combat this killer?
When the researchers studied a specific type of omega-6 called DGLA on mice with atherosclerosis, they found that the omega-6s impacted several stages in the development of atherosclerosis.
- Prevent inflammation
- Stop cells from taking up cholesterol (too much cholesterol in your arteries creates a dangerous traffic jam for your blood flow)
- Positively impacted two additional types of cells involved in the condition (endothelial cells and smooth muscle cells)
- And they improved mitochondrial function.
If you’re scratching your head saying, huh? Don’t worry.
The point is that this study not only shows that omega-6s prevent and treat atherosclerosis – but how they do it.
But you can leave the how part to me, and just focus on the fact that adding more omega-6-rich foods is yet another weapon in your heart-protecting arsenal.
Foods high in omega-6s include nuts, seeds, meat, poultry, fish, and eggs.
And with foods like salmon, walnuts, and eggs, you’ll be getting even more bang for your buck since they’re great sources of omega-3s as well.
