The hidden powers of omega-3 fatty acids... unlocked!
It's time to take the politics out of this one and end the debate for good -- because new research reveals what could be one way to get nearly ALL of the same benefits of cannabis.
But this one carries NONE of the risks!
You don't need marijuana at all -- in any form -- to activate the same pathways in the body.
And if the new study is any indication, all you really need are the safe, healthy, inexpensive omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil.
It's as if the answer was swimming right in front our noses all along!
The key is already in your body, in what's known as the endocannabinoid system. It can play a role in mood, sleep, appetite, memory, and more.
Your body produces its own cannabinoids to bind to the receptors in this system and help with all of those functions, but you can also get cannabinoids in other ways to help boost the whole system.
The most famous one is probably the THC in marijuana, which binds to cannabinoid receptors in the body's nervous or immune systems to help fight inflammation and pain in some people.
Unfortunately, THC also does a few other things, too. It can make you "high," of course, and has other side effects (not to mention the very real risk of overuse and abuse, and the costs to both people and society that result).
But the new study on animal tissue finds that your body can convert omega-3 fatty acids into endocannabinoids, which then can also seek out the receptors in the all-important immune system.
The result is the SAME inflammation-fighting action or BETTER... and potentially MORE pain relief... but with ZERO side effects and ZERO chance of abuse!
Well, almost zero.
Since omega-3s are found in delicious foods like salmon, you could always end up with an expensive "addiction" to this quality source of healthy fats.
Of course, since the experiments published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences were done on animal tissue, we need to see human studies before we get too excited about this.
If we see the same results in people, scientists will also have to determine the best dose of omega-3 and the best way to get it for maximum protection.
But we don't need to see more research to know that omega-3 fatty acids are already widely recognized as potent inflammation-fighters, and the doses you'll find in supplements can help fight pain and protect the body from chronic disease.
