Omega-3 (EPA/DHA) functions in the body:

  • Promotes cardiovascular health
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Supports mental focus and cognitive function
  • Supports positive mood and emotional well-being
  • Promotes brain, eye and nervous system health
  • Supports healthy immune system function and decreases cancer risk
  • Enhances appearance of skin and hair
  • Promotes optimal fat metabolism

Remember when you were a kid and mom made you take a tablespoon of cod liver oil daily?  Well fish oils have come a long way since then as far as taste, quality and research.  Studies are published almost daily as the scientific community discovers more and more of the many extraordinary benefits provided by Omega-3 fish oil.

Omega-3 fatty acids are “good fats” that are essential for health. Like vitamins and minerals, Omega-3 fats must be provided by our diet as they are not produced by the body. EPA and DHA are the active forms of Omega-3 required by the body to perform vital functions. DHA is the key fat for brain function, whereas EPA is the key fat for total body health.  Fish oil is rich in both.

Many seniors blame their mental decline on age but brain wellness depends on increased blood flow and decreased inflammation.  The brain loves DHA and it can’t perform at peak levels without adequate supplies of Omega-3 fatty acids.  More than 60% of the weight of the brain is fat, and most of the Omega-3 fatty acids in the body are concentrated in the brain.  High doses of fish oil can help maintain adequate levels of the neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine, thereby reducing depression, dementia, and the development of Parkinson’s disease.  Dopamine helps get seniors geared into action, enhancing your brain’s ability to concentrate on the task at hand.  Serotonin is your “feel good” hormone.  It gives you a sense of well-being and allows you to handle stress more easily.

Pain usually stems from inflammation of the body’s tissues, whether they are muscles or joints. High doses of fish oil reduce arachidonic acid, the hormone responsible for pain and inflammation.  By regulating your inflammatory response, krill oil can prevent and treat many painful conditions seniors are living with like arthritis, prostatitis, or cystitis, as well as fibromyalgia and inflammatory bowel conditions.

Krill oil is also well known for its ability to do wonders for your heart and the miles and miles of arteries and veins that make up your cardiovascular system.  Studies has proven fish oils can lower your LDL (bad cholesterol), triglycerides and blood pressure while raising your HDL (good cholesterol) levels and reduce a senior’s risk of stroke and heart attack.

Further studies have shown that Omega-3 oil helps prevent three of the most common forms of cancer – breast, colon and prostate. Science tells us that Omega-3s accomplish this in three ways: by stopping the alteration from a normal healthy cell to a cancerous one, by inhibiting unwanted cellular growth and by causing cell death to cancerous cells.

The benefits of krill oil are well documented and far-reaching for us all.  In addition to disease prevention some of the other noticed benefits of supplementing daily include healthier hair, stronger nails, radiant skin, improved metabolism, and more get-up and go.  A high quality krill oil supplement is something every Canadian senior should have in their life.

Be advised, not all omega 3 oil supplements are of the same quality. Be sure that your supplementary oil is pharmaceutical-grade.  Low-grade oils may cause gastrointestinal problems like bloating and diarrhea and they often leave a bad taste in the mouth, not to mention that they may contain mercury, PCB’s and DDT.  Pharmaceutical-grade fish oil contains approximately 5 mgs of Omega-3 fatty acids in 1 teaspoon or 5 capsules.  Potent krill oil requires a smaller dose of only 2 capsules per day. These oils are typically more expensive but worth every penny.  Your body and brain deserve nothing less. Encapsulation can help keep the oil fresh longer, however if you have difficulty swallowing pills liquid fish oil packs a punch in just one teaspoon. For those who dislike the taste try sucking on a slice of citrus fruit for five seconds before taking your fish oil.

Most people who are supplementing with fish oil do not take enough to notice the therapeutic benefits, and most over-the-counter fish oils contain only small amounts of EPA and DHA. You should try and consume at least 2.5 grams per day of Omega-3 fatty acids.  If you suffer from any chronic illness such as Alzheimer’s, or suffer from inflammatory disorders then you will need much more fish oil, more like 10 to 25 grams per day.

Omega-3 Fatty Acid Content in Fish :


As you can see from the chart above, Zoomers would need to eat several servings of oily fish every single day to achieve even minimal amounts of EPA and DHA from food alone. With the benefits of optimal fish oil consumption so far reaching, I strongly recommend every Zoomer make an Omega-3 fish oil supplement as part of their daily regime for disease prevention and longevity.

Healthy Tidbits

In this century, the world will have more people living into their 80s and 90s than ever before, with the number of people 80+ set to quadruple between 2000 and 2050.


Increased life expectancy is largely due to improvements in public health, and healthy ageing is linked directly to health in earlier stages of life.


Although it is natural for biological processes to decline with age, the rate at which our body’s decline is impacted by many controllable lifestyle factors such as how we eat, how we move, and how many toxic substances we are exposed to.
