Fish Oil Protects Cells from Aging

Omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil prevnets cell aging by preserving structures called telomeres.

Telomeres form the protective caps of the genes.  The deteriorate with ages, which eventually results in cell death.  Protecting the telomeres is an imortant way to prevent aging.  A university of California,  San Francisco study found that people with the highest blood levles of mega-3 fatty acids showed the slowest rate of telomere shortening over five years.   Fish oil high in Omega-3 fatty acids is an effective anti-aging suppliement.  (journal american medical assoc, 303: 250-257, 2010)
