Omega 3, benefits Worth billions of Euros
Omega 3, benefits for finances too. The essential acid fat mainly present in fish are a panacea to prevent heart disease. According to a report by FSA, Food Supplement Europe, Europe’s food supplement production association, a one-gm Omega supplement in the over-55 population’s diet would give economic benefits equal to nearly 13 billion Euro a year, thanks to lower health costs.
The study predicts that in the next 5 years about 24% of this band of Europeans must turn to hospital performance for heart pathologies, for a total of over 38 million events. This cure heap could be reduced by 4.9%, with a saving of 64.5 billion Euro in the 5-year period 2016 – 2020 by taking the suggested Omega 3 dose.
The beneficial effects are well documented by 18 checked, random clinical studies, and EPA and DHA already have various indications (so-called health claims) approved by the EU to maintain normal triglyceride levels in the blood, blood pressure and heart functioning (with 1 gm / day). So FSE chose them for the first economic analysis quantifying the impact of nutrients and / or food supplements on Europe’s health balance.
