The omega-3 discovery

The omega-3 essential fats help building muscle, reduce inflammation, improve insulin metabolism, promote brain health and protect against cardiovascular disease. They are becoming the health miracle of the 21st Century.

However, the omega-3 phenomenon all started over 30 years ago with a few young Danes dog-sledding their way to Greenland to check out some Eskimos.

Danish scientist Dr. Jörn Dyerberg, then, a young researcher, set off with a couple of colleagues via dog sled over the ice and snow to check out the lifestyle of the Greenland Eskimos, or Inuit as they prefer to be called. This was back in 1970 and Dr. Dyerberg was curious how the Inuit’s could eat an extremely high-fat diet and still have one of the lowest death rates from cardiovascular disease on the planet.

The scientists analyzed blood samples from the natives and identified high levels of two long-chain fatty acids, now called eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). The researchers published this landmark paper in The Lancet in 1971 and the omega-3 phenomenon began.

Now, some 14,000 papers on the omega-3s have been published, including close to 8,000 human studies.

Motivation

Use it or lose it…..

Maybe some of us have kind of dabbled in health and fitness. You know ‘The Amazing Watermelon Diet of the Stars’ in the weekly mag, or ‘Pilates is the answer to that flat belly you’ve always dreamt of’ on the prime time ‘health show’ or perhaps it was ‘Go hard or go home’ flyer of the ubiquitous 6 week challenge at the local gym that hooked you in, albeit until it got too hard or just finished.

Your Lifestyle Has Consequences

Have you ever heard the saying, ‘that you become what you think about all day long’? The same also applies to exercise, ‘you become what you do or don’t do on a regular basis’. Hence the headline today. The trick with this ‘consistent exercise gig’ we all know we need is to find your motivation. If you can achieve that, you will no longer need ‘will power’, as the reason for doing it drives the action on auto pilot.
