WHEN YOU START RESEARCHING THE BENEFITS OF ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS you soon discover we don't get enough of them, that is to say, the omega-3s and the 6s in our diet. The 3s and 6s are the essential ones. They're 'essential' because our body can't manufacture them. So we must get them from food or supplements, or both. And getting the balance right is important: we need more omega-3 than omega-6. In an ideal world good sources of the fatty acids would come from eating plenty of the right seeds, plants and nuts and unless we're vegan or vegetarian we would also eat meat and fish. In that spectrum of a varied diet most of us probably don't eat enough omegas..

For non-vegans and vegetarians taking a fish oil or Omega 3 supplement is important as is working out how many capsules to take to get the right 'strength.' On most good bottles of fish oils the label normally specifies between 1- 3 capsules and it can be confusing knowing how many to take. Cod liver oil is not straightforward because it's made only from the liver of cod and therefore, although higher in vitamin's A and D, it is lower on the omegas. Usually the recommendation for a high strength cod liver oil is one per day. A 'fish oil' capsule on the other hand is derived from the whole fish and the more specialist brands of fish oil can come in double, or even triple strength and that can lead to a higher consumption of omegas.

So how many capsules a day are we supposed to take? For that reason alone it's important to buy from a reputable high street shop where advise can be given. We all love a bargain but with health cheap can be expensive, or in some cases if the quality and strength is bad, pointless. Good advice or information will save money and stand a better chance of putting you in touch with the correct product, whatever your health needs.

The health benefits of the Omega-3 fatty acids are well established within the scientific community and normally include the following benefits:

- Improve artery health by helping to reduce plaque build-up and blood clots in arteries that lead to the brain.
- Improve cholesterol by lowering triglycerides and elevating HDL (good cholesterol) levels. These benefits come primarily from DHA and EPA.
- Improve joint health by reducing joint tenderness and stiffness associated with arthritis and osteoarthritis.
- Improve bone health by positively impacting the body's calcium levels, reducing the incidence of bone loss.
- Improve mental health by helping to insulate nerve cells in the brain, allowing these nerve cells to better communicate with one another. People who are deficient in omega 3s may suffer from depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, eating disorders, and ADHD.
- Improve skin health by helping to alleviate symptoms related to skin disorders like acne and psoriasis.
- Improve bowel health by reducing inflammation of the bowels, helping alleviate symptoms of Crohns disease and ulcerative colitis.
- Improve lung health by reducing inflammation in diseases like asthma.
- Improve menstrual health by reducing the pain associated with PMS and menstruation.
- Help prevent cancer. Colon, breast, and prostate cancers have all been correlated with low intakes of omega 3s.

For some of the health conditions above, a higher amount of Omega-3 is likely to be more effective, that is to say taking the upper recommended dose of whatever the label recommends but this also depends on your diet and how efficiently your body absorbs. If you are taking any medication it's also important you let your health practitioner know since fish oils can interfere with some medicines.

Omega oils work best together with ample amounts of vitamins A, B3, B6, C and E and the minerals magnesium and zinc, so a good multivitamin would go well with them. For vegetarians and vegans flaxseed, either taken as a cold-pressed organic liquid or in capsules is available, and with vegans a good vitamin B12 is also recommended.

So, how did your New Year’s resolutions work out for you this year – did you stick to any of them? If yours included having a purer, healthier lifestyle you still have time to redeem yourself before the year is up, it’s not too late! The trouble is, it can be a nightmare trying to negotiate a balance without turning your whole existence upside down.

randi-questAn easy way to achieve this, is to add one little thing to your daily routine: a good quality fish oil. Human beings originate from the water’s edge and our building blocks are set up to thrive on nutrition derived from fish. With the best will in the world however, very few of us manage to include a sufficient amount in our daily diet to achieve optimum health.

That’s where a good quality supplement comes in handy. At Elixir, we are particularly fond of Quest’s Omega 3 Fish Oil, as we always get such incredibly positive feed-back. They contain a good source of EPA and DHA, which are both essential long-chain omega fats that provide benefits such as boosting brain health, aiding in recovery from exercise-induced inflammation and contributing to a more positive mood.

Benefits of Omega 3 Fatty Acids
Over the years many different health benefits have been discovered for omega 3’s. These include:
• Healthy Heart – Omega 3 fatty acids can reduce cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Studies also indicate that they can help to reduce high blood pressure.
• Joint Pain and Mobility – Numerous studies findings show that EPA in fish oil may offer anti-inflammatory benefits.
• Stroke – Omega 3 can help to promote healthy blood circulation which can improve the health of arteries by reducing the build-up of plaque and blood clots.
• Brain Function – EPA and DHA can help to insulate nerve cells in the brain, which improves their ability to communicate with each other effectively. As a result they are often referred to as ‘brain food’.
• Depression and Mood – Numerous studies have looked in detail at the relationship between omega 3’s and depression. Results have found that higher levels of EPA and DHA may help to reduce feelings of anxiety and irritability.
• Hormonal Balance – Omega 3’s are integral for the production of hormones. As a result they can help to regulate hormone production and offer relief from menstrual cramps or menopausal symptoms.
• Skin Conditions – If you are deficient in Omega 3 then you may find that your skin is dry and cracked. Omega 3 may provide anti-inflammatory properties that can be useful in preventing or treating skin conditions such as rosacea, psoriasis and eczema.s

We have a fantastic offerfrom Quest this month, December 2016 – when you buy one pot of 90 capsules Omega 3 Fish oil, you get another pot of 90 capsules free of charge. We have a limited supply available so don’t take too long making your mind up; this really is a cracking deal and a great way to make sure you go through winter in the peak of health!

Solgar Magnesium Citrate - The Alternative To...Muscle Pains And Sleeping Problems

** Solgar Magnesium Citrate is available from – Click on the link to lean more and to buy online. **

I would like to introduce you to the benefits of magnesium today, as it is an often overlooked mineral. We all know we need it, but there are so many other minerals which are far better publicised than the humble magnesium. For instance, a lot of people will buy calcium for their bone tissue, but did you know that magnesium helps regulate calcium within the bones and teeth? Magnesium also increases the activity of Vitamin D which, among other things, aids calcium absorption. In fact, many experts now feel that magnesium intake is at least as critical to skeletal health as calcium.

randi-solgar-magnesiumAt Elixir, we are particularly fond of Solgar’s Magnesium Citrate, which is an easily absorbed type of magnesium. There are a multitude of potential reasons why you may want to supplement with magnesium, but here are some of the main applications:

Muscle cramps, spasms and twitches
Magnesium is needed for the relaxation of muscle tissue, whereas calcium facilitates contraction. Magnesium’s action as a muscle relaxant relates to its ability to block muscle uptake of calcium.

Sleeping problems
When your muscles relax, so do you. Sweet dreams!

Nerve health and function
Magnesium works in tandem with calcium to ensure proper nerve impulse transmission. Deficiency is linked to lactic acid build-up leading to an imbalance which is linked to anxiety and stress related disorders.

Hormonal health
Deficiency can severely impair hormone balance in women and is a causal factor in many cases of PMT, leading to mood swings, weight gain and nervous tension.

Cardiovascular health and high blood pressure
Magnesium deficiency is a common feature of conditions such as arrhythmias, high blood pressure, congestive heart failure, mitral valve prolapse and peripheral vascular disease.Mag.jpg Evidence suggests that supplementation can be both preventative and therapeutic. Many of the benefits of magnesium relates to its role in vascular smooth muscle function, leading to relaxation of the vascular muscle as well as blocking smooth muscle uptake of calcium. It also helps to reduce sodium build-up within cells that would otherwise elevate blood pressure. Excessive blood clotting and calcification of blood vessels is reduced, leading to less accumulation of atherosclerotic plaque.

Pain relief
Some pain is caused by tense muscles and nerves, and may be relieved by taking magnesium. Migraine, tension headaches, PMT and fibromyalgia are just some examples where taking a therapeutic dose of magnesium may help.

As a general rule, anyone can take magnesium but just be aware that you may end up with loose stools if you take high doses, and if you are on medication you should check with your doctor first.
