(NaturalNews) The benefits of omega-3 fatty acids, especially DHA, are becoming more apparent due to voluminous new research that has linked them to the natural treatments of many diseases. These findings are staggering to say the least, as it brings hope for ameliorating numerous health ailments. It even seems to combat one of the largest health issues in the nation: obesity.

The obesity epidemic in the United States, and throughout the world, is escalating rapidly. The epidemic is a result of multiple health pitfalls that many citizens are currently falling for. Processed foods contain harmful fat-inducing additives, such as aspartame and high-fructose corn syrup. These additives spark fat gain through spiking insulin levels and stress the organs to the point of disease. Lack of activity is another overbearing factor that contributes to the poor health of the nation. Exercise can help manage insulin levels and even treat diabetes. Unfortunately, obesity rates are skyrocketing without interruption.

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the prevalence of self-reported obesity in the United States is approximately 27%. However, there is no telling if every person that is obese actually reported themselves as obese in this survey. There are many steps people could and should take to lose fat, or prevent fat from being gained in the first place.

Thanks to recent studies, we now know that omega-3 fatty acids aid in keeping the weight off through revamping metabolic health. Information from a recent study shows that the health of your white adipose tissue as well as the health of your liver is vital in metabolizing, or burning, calories at normal rates. In addition to keeping your fat metabolic rate in check, omega-3's also coordinate gene signals that prevent your body from storing up the calories as fat.

While this is extremely helpful information, it's important to realize that the consumption of omega-3's alone will not suffice when it comes to reducing body fat. It is critical to get some sort of activity every day, as opposed to a highly sedimentary lifestyle. A highly sedimentary lifestyle may lead to disease and a shorter lifespan. Overeating is also a main factor in fat gain, especially eating excessive amounts of junk food rich in additives and dangerous chemicals. Omit these things from your diet, get some fresh air, add those omega-3's, and watch the weight vanish.
