Overview

The people of Iceland have less heart disease, high blood pressure and stroke than those of any other country. In fact, they outlive all other nationalities. Their longevity is a direct result of their daily intake of omega-3 rich fish oils. The American Heart Association recommends omega-3 fatty acids to help prevent cardiovascular disease and stroke. Omega-3s inhibit plaque and blood clots and dramatically improve cholesterol levels. They also increase brain function by promoting neurotransmission in the brain. With research from over 20 leading medical and scientific journals, Drs. Garry Gordon and Herb Joiner-Bey reveal how the "good fats" found in omega-3s from fish and pharmaceutical-grade supplements are essential to maintaining optimum health. The only way your body can get these vital essential fatty acids is through proper nutrition and supplementation. The Omega-3 Miracle shows you how. Clinical and scientific studies in both Europe and the U.S. show that omega-3 fatty acids benefit a wide range of conditions.
