Written By: Ken

Yesterday you learned about Omega 3s and their ability to decrease inflammation, help to regulate insulin and help you lose fat.

Today you are going to learn how they help reduce or eliminate joint pain, help with  brain function, memory and depression relief.

And if that’s not good enough, they also help with heart health and reducing plaque in your arteries, and reducing high blood pressure.

So click the play button to watch the video below and get all helpful details.

Don’t forget to post your comments or questions below the video.

To Your Health,

Ken

Hi Ken,


I listened to all the videos you sent to me, but somehow I am missing the once about how much Omega-3 to take.  Love all your information - really helpful.  Thanks for resending the video on the quantity of Omega-3.  Be well!

We are taking Vectomega -- Omega-3 DHA/EPA Complex from Salmon.  Any research on this product or the amount that needs to be taken.

The way that Ken "translates" the correct, technical/scientific information into lay terms most of can actually use, is critically valuable. I like to be able to confirm and verify the information, with the "lab rat" experts and scientists, but I would be hard put to be able to comprehend and process all the disparate pieces of information on my own.  Too many moving parts for a lay person. And I want to invest my energy into executing on the information in my own life, not letting the learning part take on a life of its own. Good Job Ken and all.

Again -- OUTSTANDING CONTENT!  Short and PACKED with "education" as well as "actionable information", I am thoroughly impressed by the scope, breadth, depth and overall "integration" of your Paleoburn program/system, Ken -- and I've only been a Member for FOUR DAYS!   And here's a kicker for you, Ken: I'm 58 (male) , "healthy" (not a single complaint or illness or prescription medication), "physically" both fit and (very) active -- and a "beanpole" at 6'-2"/160#  (155 graduating high school, 150 graduating college, to 209 in early '02, and back ~ 160 by year-end '02).  Personally, then, not hardly a candidate for losing weight, eh?  So -- WHY am I here ANYWAY?  'Simple -- "Loved Ones", who could absolutely GAIN by losing not less than 50 pounds (of pure "fat") EACH.   I therefore tend to poke-my-nose into and around "weight-loss programs" that are brought to my attention by (ah) certain/select "sources".  YOURS came to me in this manner.  I am SO "impressed" by you and your program/system that I have already steered my (3) Loved Ones to Paleoburn.  AND? ...    Yup -- even this beanpole finds (literally) "life-altering VALUE" in Paleoburn via the tremendous amount of "education" and "information" that your Program conveys and that your System incorporates.  An "Open Mind" and "Willing Ears" can glean lots that is personally useful/beneficial to health/well-being.  I'll conclude by simply stating one thing:  I never expected to PERSONALLY benefit from Paleoburn -- and after merely FOUR DAYS of (ah) "exposure", I readily concede to being DEAD WRONG!

I have been taking fish oil for 3 months now.  The trainer from my crossfit box suggested I start taking the supplement.  Thank you for being a second source of information.  I can hardly wait for the next video telling us how much fish oil to take.  Thanks again.

I would really like to read the various studies quoted in these interesting videos.  Most health letters I read give the citations for the studies so we can download or find them on line.  It would be great if your group would do the same.  Thank you.

I took fish oil supplements years ago, and was advised by my physician to stop as they could be harmful. Any insight?

Very interesting information. I would really be interested in reading the studies you mention. Any chance you could tell me who wrote them and where they were published?

I'm 66yrs. young, and have worked as an R.N. for 42yrs. My right knee has been injected a few times. I'm still active, biking, walking, and dancing every week. Is it too late to improve my joint situation?

Really like these videos -  but do have some concerns about Omega-3's as noted in a previous post I sent.  Would increasing the amount of antioxidants, etc., help to address the potential prostate cancer risk factors associated with Omega-3s?  I'm super new to your program and so far, love it.

Another very interesting and informative video. I really have faith that this system is the answer I've been looking for my whole fat life! I am beginning my fourth day today and already have a cooler ready to fill with my PLENTIFUL high quality, low carb mini meals and snacks! It's a new concept for me to eat without guilt and self loathing! I'm incorporating flax oil into my smoothies and on my salads.

@Judy Cowen  Here's what you need to look for in an Omega-3 supplement: You should be getting “2.2g per day of EPA/DHA”, “enteric coated” (to reduce fish burps), “molecularly distilled” (to remove toxins), and “easy to swallow”, and also make sure that you get enough fish oil in each capsule so that you don't have to take 10 a day to get 2.2g

Krill oil is from a crustacean (similar to shrimp), so for anyone with shellfish allergies, fish oil is definitely a better supplement choice. Another factor to consider is cost, as krill oil tends to be a bit more expensive than omega-3 supplements.

As far as krill being a "better" source of Omega-3's, some say it is, others say that more research needs to be done. There are just not as many studies done to confirm the benefits of Krill oil supplements in comparison to the huge amount that show the effectiveness of Omega-3 fish oils (DHA and EPA).

Unfortunately, the recent news articles have caused quite a bit of unfounded concern. The media reports indicating a link between fish oil and an increased risk of prostate cancer are considered to be misleading, and false by many experts.

The participants in the study to which this “news” was referring to were actually not using fish oil supplements, and the data reported contained many flaws. Recent new reports also indicate that almost twice the number of those who were diagnosed with prostate cancer who participated in the study had a positive family history, and therefore the findings based on the collective information are inaccurate.

As with any supplements, it's important to always read the labels carefully, and choose the one that best suits your needs (according to your doctors recommendations).

Here is a link with some detailed information about our Ultra Pure Omega-3 supplement that you might find helpful (which also contains a free 30-day supply trial offer... you only pay the cost for shipping). https://paleoburn.com/onsale/supplements/om3

Joint pain can be caused from a variety of issues. Ken recently had his knee scoped to remove some loose cartilage so he knows what that kind of pain feels like. But general inflammation can also cause pain in your joints. An omega-3 fish oil regimen is designed to improve general inflammation, which in turn will reduce this kind of joint issue. You may find the omega-3 to have other health benefits beyond just helping to relieve joint pain.

However, consuming foods that are rich in antioxidants is always beneficial in many ways. :)

@cstromberg

Actually, there is no direct correlation (cause/effect) between high blood pressure and a rapid heart rate. As your blood pressure numbers decrease, your blood vessels naturally get larger (dilate) which better accommodates better blood flow. However, having high blood pressure does not cause you to have a rapid heart beat.

It is important to always check both your heart rate and your blood pressure separately. While one may be in the low/normal/high range, the other may not.

So it’s always best to consult your physician if you are experiencing these symptoms, (particularly if combined with other symptoms) as this may be an indication of a number of other serious issues, which may need immediate attention.

@akmaster Including at least 2-3 servings of a variety of types of fish in your diet per week would be certainly be beneficial. Some types of fish have shown to contain higher levels of mercury (particularly the larger, predatory type such as swordfish and king mackerel), which can build up over time. So as a general precaution, some experts argue that for anyone who is pregnant/nursing, seafood meals should be limited to ~12 oz. per week. But in general, the benefits of consuming fish that are high in Omega-3 fatty acids far outweigh the risks.
