I don’t know about you, my friend, but I’m darned sick of all the empty promises coming from Big Pharma.
Every couple of years, they try to cram an expensive new drug down our throats, claiming that THIS one is THE one — the one drug you need to protect your heart and save your life.
Then, of course, THAT one falls out of favor and it’s onto the NEXT one.
Real science doesn’t come in and out of fashion like clothing — it stands the test of time.
And when it comes to your heart, nothing in the world has stood up to decades of research and thousands of years of real-world results quite like the omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil.
Now, a major “new” study confirms this very OLD discovery: Not only will omega-3s protect your heart, but they’ll give it a suit of armor just when it needs it most… when you’re in the ER, in those tense life-or-death moments right after a heart attack.
If you’ve been falling short on omega-3s, you could find yourself going from the ER right to the morgue.
But if you get all the fats you need, your risk of dying from that heart attack drops by 25 percent.
Even more moderate levels of omega-3s will help save your life, cutting that death risk by 10 percent compared to folks with low intake.
What makes this study so important is that — unlike so many others — the folks weren’t asked to take a wild guess about how much omega-3s they were getting each day.
This was a massive and thorough undertaking involving some 45,000 people in 19 countries — and they were ALL given blood tests so we know exactly how much omega-3s they had pumping through their arteries.
So you know what to do: Boost your omega-3 intake if you’re not working on that already.
There are three ways to do just that:
- Eat more fatty fish, like salmon. It’s summertime, and there’s nothing like a salmon filet grilled on a cedar plank.
- Boost your intake of grass-fed beef and free-range eggs, which also contain oodles of omega-3s.
- Take a supplement — and read the fine print to make sure it’s the real deal, because 1,000 mg of “fish oil” is not the same as 1,000 mg of omega-3 fatty acids. Check the ingredients and choose one that has high levels of EPA and DHA.
There’s another decent source of omega-3s, but if you’ve been listening to the mainstream nags you probably haven’t touched the stuff in years.
It’s butter, and the latest research proves they got it wrong.
Butter is making a big-time comeback, and I’ll have the full scoop on that in a message later today.
