With omega 3 you extend your life!

With omega 3 you extend your life!

With omega 3 fatty acids you move back the hands of the biological clock and extend your life! This is what emerges from a recent scientific research that appeared in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition thanks to the work of an American team (McBurney et al, AJCN, 2021).

Omega 3 and health

We are what we eat and with some lifestyle and diet choices it is possible to guarantee us a long life and good health. Omega 3 fatty acids are considered anti-inflammatory and protective for the heart and brain, they are essential and this means that they cannot be produced by the body on its own but must be introduced with the diet. The researchers of the study we are talking about today therefore tried to understand whether the omega 3 circulating in the blood, as a result of the omega 3 introduced with food, can be considered good indicators of the state of health.

Omega 3 fatty acids extend your life, the experiment

2240 people were recruited, all over 65 years of age. The volunteers were followed for 11 years and periodically underwent blood tests to evaluate the values of circulating omega 3. What emerged was that those with higher omega 3 values, the result of a regular intake of these substances through the diet, could count on an extension of life expectancy of at least five years, compared to those with low levels of omega 3 and who therefore followed a diet low in these precious fatty acids. The same beneficial effect has been observed in those who quit smoking, as smoking shortens lifespan by an average of 5 years.

The foods richest in omega 3

So, small changes to lifestyle and diet, such as regularly including sources of omega 3 fatty acids, have consequences that at first glance could be considered unthinkable as they are so beneficial to health. And then, as indicated by the authors of the study themselves, it is never too late to intervene in your diet and guarantee these results thanks to a healthy, balanced diet that includes foods such as fatty fish, like salmon, anchovies, tuna and herring, but also flax and pumpkin seeds, walnuts and chia seeds.
