Mood, Oxytocin, Omega-3 To purchase OMEGA-3 Click here

NEW YORK (Reuters Health) reported – “Having salmon for dinner is not just good for your heart, it may also improve your disposition, according to a University of Pittsburgh study. It found that omega-3 fatty acids, which are plentiful in fatty fish like salmon, seem to affect areas of the brain associated with emotion”.

Research from others, find that Oxytocin and vasopressin were discovered, isolated and synthesized by Vincent du Vigneaud in 1953, work for which he received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1955.

Oxytocin and vasopressin are the only known hormones released by the human posterior pituitary gland to act at a distance. Secretion of oxytocin is from the neuro-secretary nerve endings and is regulated by the electrical activity of the oxytocin cells in the hypothalamus.

Oxytocin is also made by some neurons in the para-ventricular nucleus that project to other parts of the brain and to the spinal cord.

Oxytocin (Greek word meaning: "quick birth") is a mammalian hormone that also acts as a neurotransmitter in the brain. In women, it is released mainly after distension of the cervix and vagina during labor, and after stimulation of the nipples, facilitating birth and breastfeeding, respectively. Oxytocin is released during orgasm in both sexes. In the brain, oxytocin is involved in social recognition and bonding, and might be involved in the formation of mood and trust between people.

In another study, Dr. Sarah M. Conklin team previously observed that people with lower blood levels of omega-3 fatty acids were more apt to have a negative outlook and to be more impulsive, while those with higher levels typically were more agreeable and less likely to exhibit a sour mood.

In their latest study, Conklin and colleagues set out to see whether the volume of gray matter in the brain, especially in areas related to mood, was proportionally related to the amount of omega-3 fatty acid consumed.

They asked 55 healthy adults about their average intake of omega-3 fatty acids and used MRI bran scans to determine gray matter volume.

As the researchers theorized, the higher the intake of omega-3 the larger were the volumes of gray matter in areas of the brain associated with mood and regulation of emotion.

These findings hint that omega-3s may contribute to structural improvement in areas of the brain related to emotion -- the same areas where gray matter is reduced in people with mood disorders such as depression.

Omega 3’s and Autism is thought to be connected, because several neurological diseases including Autism, is thought to be caused by heavy metal crossing the brain barrier penetrating unhealthy cell membranes. Omega-3’s having been generally removed from our food sources since about the 1950’s, to increase shelf life, cause unhealthy cell membranes to be produced; and easily penetrated by heavy metals and unknown pathogens of various types.

Mothers who were themselves raised on processed foods, which are robbing her of her long chain fatty acid Omega-3’s, can have unhealthy babies. Her body produces unhealthy cells and she produces a baby likely to be troubled with any number of neurological diseases; ADD, ADHD, Autism or Parkinson’s.

A healthy cell membrane that is difficult for heavy metals and unknown pathogens to penetrate is made up of, Omega-3’s, Omega-6’s, Omega-9’s, Cholesterol and Arachadonic Acid. When we rob the system of the Omega-3 long chain fatty acids, the body must scramble to survive. So it makes a short chain trans fatty acid in the place. This short chain trans fatty acid is HDL and LDL cholesterol. Are you surprised? Don’t the pharmaceutical companies tell you that this is Good and Bad cholesterol? When in fact, HDL and LDL, is Bad and Worse cholesterol.
