Cellular Circulation and Omega 3

Cellular Circulation and Omega 3

According to Dr. Rosedale what is important in cellular circulation is what goes into the cells and what comes out of the cells. It makes no difference what gets to the cells. It's what gets into the cell that is crucial. What is it that enhances cellular circulation? It is Omega 3.

A study was done on a breed of cats that were genetically susceptible to cancer. These cats were fed a high amount of Omega 3 fatty acids plus iron. Antioxidants such as vitamin E or vitamin C were not used in this study. Here is what was discovered. The high omega 3's shrunk the tumours to nothing because the cancer cells were exploding from getting oxidized so rapidly. The omega 3 increased cell fluidity so that the O2 could rapidly get into the cells thereby causing rapid cancer cell apoptosis.

Dr Rosedale claims that because we are a sugar society we all have diabetes in one form or another.. If that is true and we know sugar feeds cancer than we are also all candidates for cancer. It's only a matter of time before each one of us becomes diagnosed with cancer. It's been said it takes about 10 years for cancer to develop in our bodies. We need to direct our attention to eliminating sugars and carbohydrates. Dr Rosedale states there are about 56 essential nutrients that stem cells require for healthy cell replication and grains and sugars don't contain any of them.

Sugar is very toxic. When you consume sugar your body burns it instead of burning fat. Your body's desired fuel is fat not sugar. Without Omega 3 your cells do not breathe and the insulin cannot enter the cells to burn the sugar. The cells become insulin resistant. Then the insulin forms saturated fat which leads to clogged arteries, obesity and decreased cell circulation.

It must be recognized that omega 3 fatty acids cannot be manufactured by the body and must be obtained through food sources. Not all Omega 3’s are the same. According to Dr. Cordain for an Omega 3 to have an impact on cellular circulation it must have the three types of fatty acids which are ALA, EPA and DHA. Furthermore it is important that the Omega 3 capsule contains a ratio of at least 30:15 EPA to DHA. For significant cell circulation to occur Dr Cordain recommends at least 5 , 1000mg capsules a day of Omega 3 .
