Introducing Diachieve Omega-3
“I recommend Diachieve Omega-3 because it contains optimal amounts of EPA and DHA. It can help prevent heart disease and other complications for those with diabetes and for those without diabetes and is also beneficial in people who already suffer from heart disease.” – Norbert Moskovits, M.D., FACC, FCCP: Director, Heart Failure Program; Associate Director Of Clinical Cardiology, Maimonides Medical Center. He has been consistently rated “One of the best physicians in NY” by NY Magazine for several years in a row. He has published many articles in several medical journals and has presented his research at national conferences.
These studies prove that omega-3 can help reduce diabetes complications:
- Reduces likelihood to become insulin resistant
- Lowers the incidence of kidney disease
- Lowers the incidence of coronary heart disease
- Helps prevent and halt progression of eye disease
- Reduces chance for developing type 1 diabetes
- Lowers triglyceride and LDL cholesterol levels
- Reduces systolic and diastolic blood pressure levels
Essential for those with diabetes
Omega-3 is essential for good health, and can greatly reduce the health complications associated with diabetes. Since the body does not produce omega-3, it must be obtained as part of our diet or from supplemental sources.
The heart and diabetes connection
According to the American Diabetes Association (ADA), adults with diabetes have heart disease death rates about 2 to 4 times higher than adults without diabetes.
Understanding the connection between diabetes and cardiovascular disease is important, because you can lower the risk of having a heart attack or ischemic stroke by taking omega-3s. Unfortunately many of us with type 2 diabetes, don’t always follow a healthy lifestyle plan which includes eating right and exercise. Taking omega-3s every day is so important to help protect us fom the complications that are caused by diabetes.
Recent Update from the CDC – Important Information (Especially if You’re Overweight)
Diabetes now affects nearly 26 million Americans of all ages and 79 million people have what doctors call “prediabetes”, according to 2011 estimates released by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Prediabetes, which the CDC says affects 35 percent of adults, is a condition where blood sugar levels are higher than normal, but not yet high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. Prediabetes greatly boosts a person’s odds for type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke. According to experts, there’s one very big reason for type 2 diabetes’ continuing rise among Americans – weight gain. If you or a loved one is overweight, but hasn’t been diagnosed with diabetes or pre-diabetes, a blood sugar test is highly recommended. Both diabetes and being overweight can put your heart at greater risk and omega-3s can help greatly improve your heart health.
Not all omega-3s are created equal:
Diachieve Pharmaceutical-Grade Omega-3 is a superior choice for diabetes because it contains the highest concentration of EPA and DHA omega 3 available to help you achieve the clinically proven benefits which studies have shown can be so important in the management of diabetes. Diachieve’s pharmaceutical-grade fish oil contains a much higher content of omega-3 per softgel than many leading brands of fish oil. To get the best value, you need to compare more than price when shopping for omega-3. Check the label for omega-3 content per softgel to determine how much you are paying per gram.
Do something great for your health and start adding omega-3!
