Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/31/2016 -- The use of natural alternatives, such as fish oil supplements, has been very popular for many years now. Fish oil is believed to offer a myriad of health benefits, especially for heart health. The good news is that for individuals who are prone to or suffering from lung disease, fish oil is a natural remedy that is worth looking into.
Fish oil is believed to be an excellent natural remedy for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, which is considered to be the number 5 cause of death worldwide. The therapeutic effects of fish oil are believed to come from its ingredient called omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fats can be obtained from eating fish such as herring, tuna, and sardines. They can also be consumed through the use of fish oil supplements.
"Today, there are many fish oil supplements available in the market that are widely popular among individuals who suffer from certain conditions," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.
According to recent research from Japan, increased consumption of omega-3-rich foods, such as herring, walnuts, salmon, and flaxseed oil, could potentially aid in the treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) including chronic bronchitis and Emphysema.
In the United States, omega-3 fats are not usually part of the typical diet. Having an omega-3-rich diet is believed to be extremely beneficial, especially for conditions such as heart disease, depression, and Alzheimer's disease.
The Japanese doctors conducted a two-year study that involved participants with COPD. It was revealed that a diet rich in omega-3 fats could potentially help curb COPD. This finding is definitely good news especially since the number of people with COPD is expected to rise in the coming years.
In a study conducted by Wataru Matsuyama, M.D., PhD, from the Japan's Kagoshima University Hospital's respiratory medicine division, 64 individuals with COPD were made to avoid smoking for at least six months. All of them also did not experience flare-ups from the condition and did not take antibiotics or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
The researchers divided the subjects into two groups. One group received a diet high in omega-3 fats and the other only received fewer amounts of the healthy fats. It was found that the group with an omega-3-rich diet experienced a substantial decrease in lung inflammation. The researchers concluded that omega-3 fats can be extremely helpful for the practical methods of treatment for COPD.
Omega-3 fatty acids are made widely available through fish oil supplements. What makes fish oil supplements more advantageous than eating fish is that they contain little to no environmental pollutants, which are a problem with fish consumption (www.amazon.com/Omega-Fish-Oil-Supplement-Softgels/dp/B00O8NS20K/).
