The Power of Fish Oils

New research from Oxford University England this week, demonstrated that a mothers ingestion of omega 3 fatty acids, through fish oils, in pregnancy could prevent dyslexia in children even if the child is born with the gene related to dyslexia present. 

Brain friendly omega 3 fatty acids found in oily fish and flax seed oils have almost vanished from our diets as they are crowded out with inflammatory omega 6 and trans fatty acids present in processed foods. We should all try to eat 1-2 servings of oily fish such as salmon, halibut, sardines, sea bass and arctic char from an unpolluted sustainable source each week.

As we learn more about epigenetics and the power of a healthy diet and even individual foods to ‘turn on’ or ‘turn off’ specific genes, we move into new areas of knowledge and greater responsibility for our own personal health and that of our children.

I am reminded of a quote by Meryl Steep and I wonder if what we found bizarre now we will take for granted in the future…..That we hold the power to achieve our optimum health and potential through diet.
