TRUTH ABOUT FISH OIL
Dave Woynarowski, M.D.
Truth is, when I first began doing research on Fish Oil several years ago I was literally overwhelmed with the incredible benefits - all of which have been substantiated in scientific studies. In my office, for example, I have a 58-page file that summarizes much of my research. Each of these 58 pages contains abstracts from at least 9 scientific studies, done over the course of one year. That's how much information there is on the subject.
Add up the pages and the years. What do you have? You have 58 years worth of studies on the subject of Fish Oil. We're talking thousands of articles I have reviewed on the subject. And so, I would venture to say you could fill up a small room in my house with the research from all of these scientific publications.
At any rate here is a SHORT LISTof the things I found:
1. Fish oil prevents second heart attacks better than any drug it was tested against!
2. Fish oil is probably the best "medicine" available to prevent sudden cardiac death!
3. Fish oil makes aspirin's "blood thinning" benefits look like a joke. Not only that, those who cannot tolerate aspirin will have no problem with the taste of Pharmaceutical Grade Fish Oil (not to be confused with normal grade fish oil bought in stores - which does leave a bad after-taste).
4. Fish oil has been used effectively in the treatment of Alzheimer's Disease.
5. Fish oil improves memory, I.Q. and helps obliterate age related memory lapses.
6. Fish oil helps people with multiple sclerosis.
7. Fish oil plays a key role in brain development. In a Scottish study conducted with young children, fish oil improved cognitive and visual skills - making them smarter than kids who did not use it!
8. Fish oil lowers blood pressure. I know this for a fact as several years back when I went on this longevity quest (after being diagnosed with high blood pressure) I used it successfully on myself. Then I gave it to my mother and it helped her, too. Then I gave it to my patients with the same result.
9. Fish oil reduces the incidence of stroke caused by clotting of brain blood vessels!
10. Fish oil lowers triglycerides and raises good HDL cholesterol, reducing the risk of heart disease.
11. Fish oil is a very potent anti-oxidant and one of the few that cross the blood-brain barrier. I call it the ultimate antioxidant and in many cases, the only one you may need!
12. Fish oil improves personality, mood, and mental disorders!
13. Fish oil is a potent natural anti-depressant!
14. Fish oil improves the health of cartilage and joints!
15. Fish oil improves the ratio of testosterone to its metabolite, DHT, and in studies was shown to be useful in treating prostate, breast and colon cancers.
16. Because fish oil simultaneously improves hormone levels and improves the health of your joints, this makes it the perfect anti-aging supplement as well as a superb supplement for athletes, speeding recovery time from hard workouts!
17. Fish oil balances hormonal levels in the body, which has many benefits - one of which is a much sounder, deeper sleep, so that you wake up in the morning feeling totally refreshed and invigorated!
18. Fish oil reduces inflammation in the lungs and can be used to treat allergies, asthma and excema.Back To Archive Contents
