Nutrition Hints
Omega-3: Across the Board

Omega-3 fatty acids might help to prevent preeclampsia, postpartum depression, menopausal problems, postmenopausal osteoporosis and breast cancer, among other benefits.

If there is one supplement all women should take, it's omega-3 fatty acids. [Have you had YOUR cod-liver oil today? Or your wild fatty fish?] Women in particular gain from an increased intake of these fatty acids.

High triglyceride levels (which are associated with cardiovascular disease, especially in women) may be kept under control with omega-3s.

The five million women in this country who are still on hormone replacement therapy should know that HRT increases triglyceride levels, so it is especially important for these women to use omega-3 supplementation. [Some women who were on HRT in the past may still have high triglyceride levels.]

Omega-3 fatty acids are constituents of the membranes of all cells in your body, and are precursors of hormones.

Omega-3s can facilitate pregnancy in women with infertility problems by increasing uterine blood flow. Supplementation during pregnancy lowers the risk of premature birth and can increase the length of pregnancy and birth weight by altering the balance of certain nutrients involved in labor and promote fetal growth by improving placental blood flow. Intake during pregnancy and breast feeding may even facilitate the child's brain development.

Be sure your supply comes from a reliable source. It's easy for oils to become rancid quickly.
