Omega 3 & Vit D Facts
4 days ago
In 2017 there were nearly 2,000 conflicting news stories on omega-3 & vitamin D. 2000!! I now know why people want to give up believing sups work. Who benefits from sensational stories? 1. An estimated 1 billion people worldwide are vitamin D deficient (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4143492/). 2. 41.6% of adults in the US are vitamin D deficient (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21310306). 3. Only 1 in 10 Americans – whether children or adults – are getting sufficient vitamin D. 4. Vitamin D interacts with over 30 different tissues in the body and affects 1,000-3,000 of your 30,000 genes. 5. When selecting your vitamin D supplement, choose the D3 form – it’s 87% more effective than the D2 version. 6. Omega-3 deficiency causes up to 96,000 preventable U.S. deaths per year, making it the 6th leading cause of death according to Harvard researchers. 7. The ideal ratio between omega-6 and omega-3 is 1:1, but unfortunately, omega-6 fats predominate the American diet by a 20:1 ratio. 8. People who supplemented with the omega-3 supplements EPA and DHA daily for 3.5 years had a 25% lower risk of heart attack and a 45% lower risk of sudden death. Did you know we can test our own omega-3 & Vit D levels from home? Order an omega-3 and vitamin D test kit at: www.nutrientpower.org Karen Howard, executive director of Organic & Natural Health Association, says there are so many variables with clinical trials on nutrients that it’s important to do field studies to collect as much data as possible. She says by measuring omega-3, DHA and EPA levels along with vitamin D serum levels, her national nonprofit organization, along with research partner GrassrootsHealth, will help to pinpoint exactly what’s working and what combinations of these nutrients are needed for improved outcomes for a variety of health conditions, which could shed more light on what levels of vitamins and supplements you actually need. Howard will tell your audience an easy way to test your omega-3 levels and vitamin D levels from home with a self-test kit, and how to participate in a nutrient study that already has 10,000 Americans signed up. Howard can also discuss with your audience FDA regulation over vitamins and supplements; how they are regulated and what consumers should look for before making purchases.
