In this video, Dr. Volker Schmiedel discusses the potential life-extending effects of omega-3 fatty acids. He highlights studies conducted on mice, roundworms, and horses that suggest omega-3 may increase lifespan and improve heart health. Dr. Schmiedel also mentions studies that show a correlation between omega-3 levels and telomere length, as well as reduced mortality rates. He recommends a daily intake of 2 grams of EPA and DHA and emphasizes the importance of accurately measuring omega-3 levels in the body for effective supplementation. Overall, he suggests that omega-3 can play a significant role in promoting longevity and overall health.

  • 00:00:00 In this section, Dr. Volker Schmiedel discusses the importance of omega-3 fatty acids for our health and longevity. He explains that omega-3 is essential for our energy needs and recommends a daily intake of about 2 grams of EPA and DHA for preventive purposes, and possibly 2-4 grams for therapeutic purposes. He emphasizes that simply consuming flaxseed oil, which contains alpha-linolenic acid, is not sufficient, as it needs to be converted into EPA and DHA. He also presents studies suggesting that EPA and DHA can potentially increase lifespan and improve health outcomes. Dr. Schmiedel acknowledges that more research is needed, particularly in humans, but the existing evidence is promising.
  • 00:05:00 In this section, Dr. med. Volker Schmiedel discusses the potential life-extending effects of omega-3 fatty acids. He explains that studies conducted on mice and roundworms have shown promising results, with both species experiencing increased lifespans when supplemented with omega-3. Although results cannot be guaranteed for humans, it is likely that omega-3 may have similar benefits for human longevity. Dr. Schmiedel also discusses the mechanisms through which omega-3 exerts its life-prolonging effects, particularly in relation to heart health. He references a study conducted on horses, where those with low omega-3 levels had a greater risk of sudden cardiac death compared to those with adequate levels. The study found that as omega-3 levels improved, the risk of cardiac death decreased. These findings demonstrate a significant correlation between omega-3 levels and heart health, with a 10-fold increase in risk observed in those with poor omega-3 levels. Dr. Schmiedel emphasizes the importance of omega-3 supplementation for heart patients, as it could potentially reduce the risk of heart attack or stroke by up to 90%. He highlights the need for further research to establish the optimal dosage of omega-3 for maximum benefits.
  • 00:10:00 In this section, Dr. med. Volker Schmiedel discusses the link between omega-3 fatty acids and longevity. He refers to a study that measured telomeres, which are protective caps at the ends of chromosomes that shorten as cells divide. The study found that patients with the highest omega-3 levels had the least telomere shortening after five years, suggesting a slower aging process. While omega-3 cannot completely stop aging, the study showed a significant reduction in the speed of aging, with the best group having only a 2% telomere shortening compared to 8% in the worst group. Dr. Schmiedel highlights the importance of omega-3 blood levels and emphasizes that not everyone absorbs these fatty acids equally, making it necessary to measure individual levels. He also mentions another study that found a 30% lower mortality rate in individuals with the highest omega-3 levels. However, he notes that it's crucial for the omega-3 to be measurable in the body to have a beneficial effect.
  • 00:15:00 In this section, Dr. Volker Schmiedel discusses a study that involved 240,000 men and followed them for 16 years. The study found that individuals with higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids in their bodies had a lower mortality rate. Specifically, there was a 10% decrease in overall mortality, a 6% decrease in cancer mortality in men, and a 20% decrease in liver mortality. Interestingly, women also experienced a significant decrease in Alzheimer's mortality. Dr. Schmiedel emphasizes the importance of accurately measuring the levels of nutrients in the body to obtain better study results and recommends incorporating omega-3 fatty acids into one's diet for potential health benefits. He also mentions that omega-3 can be beneficial for heart disease, autoimmune diseases, neurological disorders, and may even help with nerve regeneration. However, he advises caution when considering the use of omega-3 as a substitute for psychopharmaceuticals and suggests discussing any changes with a therapist or medical professional.
  • 00:20:00 In this section, Dr. med. Volker Schmiedel discusses the importance of omega-3 fatty acids for overall health. He mentions that many people have low omega-3 index levels, which can increase the risk of inflammation-related diseases. He recommends taking a daily dose of two grams of EPA and DHA, which can be found in 15 conventional fish oil capsules or in concentrated supplements. Dr. Schmiedel also suggests consuming fish or using plant-based alternatives like algae as a source of omega-3. He highlights the negative impact of poor diet and obesity on health and mentions his books that provide further information on omega-3 and nutrient therapy. Overall, he emphasizes the significance of omega-3 in maintaining optimal health.
  • 00:25:00 In this section, Dr. Volker Schmiedel discusses the potential life-extending effects of Omega-3 fatty acids. He mentions that there are studies that have looked at the combination of Omega-3 and other nutrients, such as Coenzyme Q10, and have found positive results. Additionally, he mentions a study that measured the depth of wrinkles in women and found that those with better Omega-3 levels had shallower wrinkles. Dr. Schmiedel suggests that if we want to prevent conditions like cancer and heart disease, or simply reduce wrinkles, Omega-3 supplementation may be a good option. Overall, he emphasizes the importance of considering Omega-3 as part of a holistic approach to health and longevity.
