A Dr Marilyn Glenville PhD Health Tip
These oils are good for your bones
Most people know that the oils we get from oily fish and certain seeds (the Omega 3 essential fatty acids) are vital for good health but they are also important for your bones.
It seems that good levels of Omega 3 fatty acids from oily fish and linseeds (flaxseeds) can have a positive effect on calcium absorption and bone density. They increase the absorption of calcium from your digestive system and reduce its excretion in urine. They can slow the loss of bone that happens around the menopause, and it has been found that a diet containing adequate amounts of calcium but not of essential fatty acids can increase the risk of osteoporosis.
