TV chef and nutritionist Dale Pinnock is embarking on a national crusade in order to raise awareness of the vital importance of omega 3 in our diets. Omega 3 is a type of vital fat found in our food that has been at the centre of over 15,000 trials in recent years, and has been shown to be a vital ingredient in protecting us from high blood pressure, high cholesterol, depression, anxiety, obesity, and even neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimers disease, yet it is one of the most overlooked and deficient nutrients in the UK.
Omega 3 is found widely in fish, green vegetables, some seeds and fruits — often foods that are low down on the list for us Brits. With so many profound health implications, medical experts the world over are backing this awareness campaign, which has the potential to drastically improve the health of millions.
Dale Pinnock aims to familiarise the British public with the abundance of omega 3-rich foods, and how adding more of these into their daily regime can have life changing consequences. Part of the picture is that there are also dangers of some of the widely used vegetable type oils, once deemed “heart healthy”, and are now dominating our daily diets. These oils can cancel out much of the benefit of Omega 3.
The public awareness campaign directly links in to a newly designed wellness program called ‘Enhanced Omega Wellness’, developed by some of the key researchers and medical professionals in the field. The program begins with a specially designed blood test that measures participants omega 3 and 6 levels. It then goes on to give specific steps for individuals to take on a weekly basis to bring their omega levels back to a healthy range.
