Heartburn or GERD can Kill

Heartburn is a common annoyance. The busy lifestyle, quick meals, fatty or spicy foods all contribute to the occasional need of a chewable pain reliever. The acceptance of heartburn as an inconvenient, but natural, part of the daily grind can blind you to the warning that a severe heartburn symptom can bring.

Heartburn as a Disorder

Heartburn can be a symptom as well as a disorder. Simple heartburn or GERD can be controlled and dealt with. However, heartburn can signal the presence of a much more serious problem. If it’s heartburn, you will have a burning sensation in the chest usually after eating. There may be a spread of the burning to the throat, sometimes accompanied by a bad taste, difficulty in swallowing, belching, coughing, hoarseness and/or wheezing.

It can become worse by lying down or bending over or by eating. Relief can come from an antacid. While the more severe heartburn symptoms may be mistaken for a heart attack, simple heartburn is usually not made worse by exercise. If there is any concern that the pain may signal a heart attack, get help quickly.

When You Buy Omega3 Will You Buy The Best?

By Terry Johnston

You buy Omega3 because of all the health benefits for:

*the heart

*the brain

*the joints

*the skin

*the immune system

*our vision

*aiding digestion

Omega 3 fatty acids are most potent in fish oil--a natural source. Because natural sources are the most effective way to introduce nutrients to your body, when you buy Omega3, make sure it is naturally sourced.

With so much of the Earth's water ways are contaminated with heavy metal toxins like mercury and PCBs. The fish caught from those waters produce bad fish oil and should not be eaten--heavy metal contaminants concentrate in the flesh of fish over time. Good fish oil is sourced from cleaner waters.

The best fish oil is purified and free from contaminants, is produced with a low oxidation (decomposition) level for freshness. Being naturally sourced means it has natural triglycerides or ethyl ester form which is not produced artificially.

DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) is an important ingredient as an anti-inflammatory, so you need to look for fish oil that has high levels of DHA when you buy Omega 3.

It has been found that there is an unexplained concentration of anti-inflammatory inhibition when non-concentrated hoki oil is combined with concentrated ester tuna oil. This has been dubbed the x-factor because of the synergistic effects of the combination.

Only Omega 3 oils that have this blend will provide "2 times" the anti-inflammation action of normal fish oil and double that of refined and concentrated fish oils--according to studies done by "Trinity Bioactives", part of Wellington School of Medicine in New Zealand. When you look to buy Omega 3 oils look for this formula.

Reducing inflammation is a huge reason many choose to buy Omega 3. "The secret killer" article in Time Magazine (May 2004). Offers solutions like: aspirin, Statins, Beta blockers and ACE inhibitors or you could take some Omega 3 fish oil. It's much stronger than aspirin, but easy on the stomach.

Now you can buy Omega 3/DHA in higher concentrations of anti-inflammatory then you can get by eating fish. Newer supplements on the market have some of the most highly effective fish oil concentrates, higher than normal fish oil that many people buy.

Omega 3 Fatty acids and in particular DHA have been linked to improved brain function.

One of the most impressive clinical studies found Omega 3 fatty acids or fish oils taken on regular basis reduced the risk Alzheimer's by 60%.

The American Heart Association has issued guidelines based on clinical studies that show Omega 3 fatty acids found in fish oil have proven benefits for heart health and they recommend a daily dosage.

In conclusion, when you buy Omega 3/DHA, and start taking it you will realize many health benefits, based on proven clinical studies. Look for Omega 3 in a concentrated supplement for from natural triglycerides, with high amounts of DHA for the best results.
