Top Ten Reasons To Supplement Your Diet With EPA Fish Oil
by: david mcevoy

We are in the grip of an omega 3 fish oil wave, every day more studies are published to show just how important this nutrient is to us. Last week it was children with concentration problems this week it is children with autism. Here are some very good reasons why you should consider supplementing your diet with a high quality EPA fish oil supplement.

1. Most of the modern western diets contain way too much omega 6 in the form of breads and pasta, by supplementing your diet with an omega 3 fish oil supplement it will help to correct this imbalance of omega 6 to omega 3.

2. High grade omega 3 EPA fish oil has been shown to be very beneficial in the fight against depression. If your brain becomes clogged up with Tran's fatty acids (bad fats) it is possible that the whole messaging system within your brain could become sluggish, should this happen then onset of depression may occur

3 .In one recent study performed, people who supplemented there diet with EPA fish oil lost more weight than a placebo controlled group. This is thought to be due the cells releasing the bad fats, and the body then burning them as fuel.

4. High grade EPA fish oil helps with concentration and the ability to think clearly by aiding the passage of signals within the tiny gaps of the brain called synapses.

5. Omega 3 is an essential fatty acid and cannot be produced by the body. It is called an essential fatty acid because it is Essential for correct body balance and function of most vital organs and hormones.

6. Omega 3 high grade EPA fish oil has blood thinning properties similar to aspirin, this is very beneficial for people who are at risk from a heart attack. And other similar cardiac problems. Those with arrhythmia problems and those taking blood thinning medication should consult their GP.

7. The quality of your skin, hair and nails depends on your diet being rich in all the correct essential fatty acids, especially omega 3. The body needs these essential nutrients for optimal grow and rejuvenation.

8. The omega 3 we used to obtain from milk and meat has now been reduced drastically because the cows are mainly grain fed instead of grass fed, this has reduced the omega content in meat and milk to a very low level.

9. During pregnancy the unborn baby takes all the nutrients from the mother, this includes the omega 3 nutrient DHA. If after the birth of the child these correct nutrients are not replaced then the onset of post natal depression could occur.

10.Western diets can be lazy and full of the wrong kind of fats i.e. trans fats. Therefore we are not giving our bodies the correct balance of omega 3 essential fatty acids. The body will then start to show signs of this imbalance:

Dry eyes
Dry skin
Chicken skin on the back of upper arms
Brittle nails
Frequent infections
Poor wound healing
Low moods
Mood swings

3 hal yang menyebabkan akuarium di rumah anda tidak lagi indah dipandang

keindahan akuarium adalah faktor penting dalam memelihara ikan hias di rumah anda, biasanya ada 3 hal yang menyebabkan akuarium tidak lagi indah dipandang mata.

1. air keruh
penyebab dari air keruh pada akuarium adalah sisa-sisa makanan yg tidak termakan, sisa kotoran ikan. air keruh akan mengganggu penglihatan sehingga warna ikan yang bagus tidak kelihatan. pembersihan air secara rutin minimal 3 hari sekali dengan cara penyiponan akan membantu membersihkan air akuarium.

2. tanaman/tumbuhan hijau
tanaman air yang tumbuh di sekitar akuarium berupa lumut hijau yang dapat tumbuh di dinding kaca akuarium. atau sejenis alga lainnya yang akan mempengaruhi keindahan akuarium. untuk menguranginya yaitu tempatkan akuarium pada tempat yang tidak terkena sinar matahari langsung

3. bau air
bau air disebabkan oleh penguraian sisa-sisa bahan organik seperti sisa pakan dan kotoran ikan, penguraian ini akan menghasilkan H2S, amoniak yang akan menimbulkan bau pada air akuarium. pembersihan air akuarium secara rutin akan membantu mengurangi bau tidak sedap pada akuarium.

sumber suplai oksigen pada akuarium ikan hias.

oksigen pada akuarium ikan hias sangat diperlukan bagi kelangsungan hidup ikan. apabila jumlah oksigen yang ada pada akuarium terbatas maka ikan akan terganggu hidupnya. nafsu makan ikan akan berkurang karena jumlah oksigen dalam membantu proses metabolisme terbatas, akibat dari hal ini pertumbuhan ikan akan terganggu.

suplai oksigen pada akuarium ikan dapat bersumber dari
a. difusi udara ke air,
b. tumbuhan air,
c. air masuk,

untuk meningkatkan jumlah oksigen pada air akuarium yaitu dengan cara
1. menambah aerator atau pompa air,
prinsip kerja dari aerator ini yaitu untuk memperluas daerah permukaan air sehingga difusi oksigen dari udara ke air akuarium akan banyak.
2. menambah tumbuhan air.
3. lakukan pergantian air secara rutin
