HOME REMEDY: Omegas

Written by Sof McVeigh
At this time of year when colds are everywhere it’s good to keep your immune system as tip-top as possible. There are many ways to do this – one way that’s often overlooked is topping up your omega levels.

In the past, when poorly, taking a spoonful of cod liver oil was a necessary evil, now it has been shown in countless studies that cod liver oil can provide a much-needed, all-round boost.

Cod liver oil contains omega 3. Omegas are also known as essential fatty acids – they’re called ‘essential’ as they’re essential for normal health and growth in every cell. Our bodies can’t produce them, so we have to ingest them. Sadly, many modern diets are devoid of this oil and instead are full of saturated fats, such as animal fats (butter) or hydrogenated fats, such as margarine.

Omegas 3, 6 and 9 all play a role in helping inflammatory conditions, such as eczema, psoriasis and arthritis. Also, omega 3 has been shown to help with PMS and heart conditions. The latest studies from California suggest it may also have an impact on ageing. u Next week: more on how to get more omegas in your diet.
