The importance of Omega 3 for the health of DNA

Nowadays, as a result of a hectic daily routine, people tend to consume more and more processed foods.
That means high amounts of saturated fat, sugar, sodium and low levels of micronutrients and fibres.

As we know, on one side, this type of diet develops intestinal irritation and inflammation due to an overdose and accumulation of fats and toxins.
On the other hand, the lack of essentials elements and nutrients bring different problems.

For example, high presence of free radicals has a strong impact on our metabolism. It can damage our DNA, with consequent replication errors or cells accelerated replication, etc…
So, a proper nutritional diet is essential, to improve our general health state and to help prevent the development of severe diseases.

A research was conducted in Brazil and involved a group of 151 guys between 9 and 13 years. The study has examined levels of fatty acids Omega 3 EPA and DHA, Vitamin A (referred to retinol), Beta carotene (as Vitamina A precursor) and ribloflavin in the organism and they were correlated to levels of damages in the DNA.

The research found that high levels of EPA and DHA are associated to a low level of DNA damage. This confirms the preventive and protective role these essentials fatty acids play in our genetic code.
The same correlation was not proven likewise with retinol, beta-carotene and riboflavin.

Omega 3 are famous for their anti-aging functions too.
According to another study run by the Innovation insight agency Buzzback, Omega 3 are included, especially in the USA, in the top 5 ingredients consumed with that target.

Our Spanish represented BTSA offers various forms of Omega 3:

Oils rich in EPA and DHA (omega 3 fatty acids), from fish or algae, liquid and in powder, stabilized with natural tocopherols.
Organic flax oil, cold-pressed under inert atmosphere, rich in omega 3 (ALA), liquid and in powder, stabilized with natural tocopherols.
