If I told you that you could take a pill and it would not only stop the damaged genes that lead to debilitating diseases like type 2 diabetes mellitus, heart conditions, attention deficit disorder, memory loss, hyperactivity disorder, poor metabolism, depression, bipolar, Parkinson’s, and many more but can actually reverse the altered genes back to normal; would you take it?
If you answered yes, then why not eat the foods that research has found does the same thing? Research has found that foods high in DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), a specific type of Omega 3 fatty acid, can actually stop the damaged genes and reverse them back to normal. Omega 3 fatty acids are essential, meaning you must get them from your food source.
Top Ten Super Foods
- Mackerel: 1 cup provides 7,000 mg
- Salmon Fish oil: 1 TBSP provides 4,800 mg
- Walnuts: ¼ cup provides 2600 mg
- Chia seeds: 1 TBSP provides 2500 mg
- Salmon (wild-caught): 3 ounces provides 1700 mg
- Cod Liver Oil: 1 TBSP provides 2.6 mg
- Tuna: 3 ounces provides 1400 mg
- Hemp Seeds: 1 TBSP provides 1000 mg
- Herring: 3 ounces provides 1900 mg
- Egg Yolks: ½ cup provides 240 mg
Although there are no specific guidelines at this time for recommended amounts, research shows that having 4,000 mg daily of a combination of DHA, ALA (alpha-linolenic acid), and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) with 1,000 mg coming from DHA has shown to have the best results.
What Food Cause Genes to be Damaged?
Researchers are finding a diet high in fructose is one of the biggest culprits. The research found that people with a high-fructose diet had higher insulin, triglycerides, and glucose levels, all directly linked to obesity and other related diseases.
Fructose in the form of high fructose corn syrup is in many of our foods because it is a cheap sweetener. It is in soda, juices, bread, packaged goods, soups, sauces, fruit, and much more. People seem to look at carbohydrates and think they are the devil. It is not just about looking at the label and seeing how many grams of carbohydrates or sugar are in the package. You want to stop and take the time to see where the carbohydrates are from and if fructose is on the ingredient list.
In 2014 it was estimated that the average American consumed 27 pounds of high-fructose corn syrup. The numbers are sure to have gone up since obesity, along with many other diseases. It is also estimated that Americans have approximately eight times less omega-3 fatty acids than cultures and people that are the healthiest and live the longest with the lowest disease rates. Have you been an average American, and now what will you do differently?
Omega 3 is not a miracle cure for the condition, but the fact is for sure that food can and does act as a pharmaceutical agent to the brain. Are you choosing foods that damage the brain and lead to disease, loss of memory, poor metabolism, and depression, or are you choosing foods that support optimal brain function and health?
