#2 Skin ‘Big C’ Prevention
Taking omega-3 fish oils could help to protect against skin cancer, according to researchers at The University of Manchester. The team has just carried out the first clinical trial to examine the impact of the fish oils on the skin immunity of volunteers.
Led by Professor Lesley Rhodes, Professor of Experimental Dermatology from the Photobiology Unit Dermatology Centre at the University, the study analysed the effect of taking omega-3 on 79 healthy volunteers.
The results, published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, concluded that taking a regular dose of fish oils boosted skin immunity to sunlight, and it also reduced sunlight-induced suppression of the immune system (known as immunosuppression), which can affect how well the body can fight skin cancer and infection.
That’s another vital win for natural treatments in the field of cancer.
#3 Prevents Diabetic Retinopathy
The Journal of Nutrition and Metabolism found that nutritional supplementation prevents diabetic retinopathy, and also maintains normal retinal function, mitochondrial homeostasis and inflammatory mediators.
The research team of this study were able to conclude that supplementation of omega 3 could represent an achievable and inexpensive adjunct therapy to also inhibit retinopathy, a slow progressing disease feared most by diabetic patients.
Now, stop accepting deteriorating eyesight, and potential blindness, as something you just have to live with when you are a diabetic.
