The Top Seven Reasons You Should Take Omega 7 Supplements

You’ve heard of omega-3 fatty acids. It’s the good stuff found in fish and nuts.

Its benefits are well known by healthy living advocates everywhere.

But have you heard about the benefits of omega-7?

Top medical experts are calling omega-7 the ‘new’ good fat. It has been proven to improve cardiovascular and metabolic health.

It was discovered by scientists researching the mechanism behind weight loss. What they found was a fat that behaved like a hormone [1].  Harvard Medical School decided it was so important, it filed a patent to protect it [2].

Why is omega-7 so important?

1. Helps Maintain Healthy LDL Cholesterol Levels*

Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) is also known as “bad cholesterol”. LDL is beneficial in small amounts. But you can get too much of a good thing. With age, the endothelial cells coating the interior your blood vessels rupture more easily. LDL is like mortar that repairs the nooks and crannies in these cells. But high LDL causes a buildup of waxy deposits called plaque. Excess plaque leads to coronary heart disease and hypertenion. [3] Omega-7 optimizes LDL cholesterol levels to keep endothelial cells in good shape.

2. Helps Maintain Healthy HDL Cholesterol Levels*

High-density lipoprotein (HDL) – or “good cholesterol” – are like garbage trucks of the cardiovascular system. HDL cleanses your arteries of “bad cholesterol” by breaking it down and transporting it to the liver. The liver then flushes the excess LDL out of your system. [4]Omega-7 boosts HDL cholesterol levels so you can eliminate “bad cholesterol” more efficiently.

3. Helps Maintain Healthy Triglyceride Levels*

Triglycerides are fats in your blood that are also central to a healthy metabolism. They provide energy and store important fat-soluble vitamins. But too many triglycerides increase risk of heart conditions and hepatic fat accumulation (“fatty liver disease”). Fatty liver can leads to diabetes.[5] Omega-7 optimizes triglyceride levels. It helps you avoid undesirable consequences of too many fats in your blood.

4. Helps Maintain Healthy Glucose Metabolism*

Insulin is the hormone that regulates your blood sugar levels. Insulin resistance makes you more vulnerable to glucose-borne toxins. The toxins increase your risk of developing diabetes type II. Diabetes can cause cardiovascular disease and renal failure. Omega-7 helps increase insulin sensitivity to metabolize glucose more efficiently. [6,7]

5. Supports Healthy C-Reactive Protein Levels*

C-reactive protein (CRP) is a marker for inflammation. As your immune system’s response to harmful stimuli, inflammation helps your body heal. However, too much inflammation to chronic inflammation and then acute inflammation. Chronic inflammation is the culprit behind alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, type 1 diabetes, and more.Omega-7 helps maintain healthy c-reactive protein levels and keeps inflammation in check. [8,9]

6. Improves Appetite Control*

One way to gain weight is to eat too much. Eat too many of the wrong foods and you lose your ability to know when you’re full. So eat more and more. And the problem gets worse. omega-7 has been shown to help the hormone leptin do its job. Leptin is the hormone that controls satiety. Omega-7 helps your body recognize when you’re full. It also helps halt an undesired increase in body weight. [10]

7. Boosts Metabolism Towards Energy Expenditure*

De novo lipogenesis is the process by which excess calories are converted into fats. Fatty acid oxidation is the process which which fatty acids are converted into energy. Omega-7 moderates de novo lipogenesis and increases fatty acid oxidation. This means it tells your body to use the fatty acids towards energy expenditure rather than storage. Omega-7 boosts your metabolism. It helps you burn calories instead of storing them as fat. [11]

So there are 7 good reasons to learn more about omega-7.

It’s why I say: “Omega-7 is like Manna from Heaven.”
