Health Research Around Omega-3s Includes Kiwis

In our growing intersection of the healthy foods and sexy foods, scientists are expanding their research into omega-3s, typically found in fatty fish like salmon, mackerel and sardines. 

We know that omega-3s reduce the risk of coronary heart disease by reducing inflammation and promoting healthy circulation. I write that omega-3s are “sexy” because healthy circulation is important in our “private parts” as well.

Unhealthy circulation is related to male ED, but is also important in female sexuality, where blood circulation affects a woman’s clitoris. Keeping this post simple, female arousal, lubrication and ultimately, orgasm depend on good supply.

The health news in this Wall Street Journal post concerns understanding the impact of omega-3s in other medical conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy and rheumatoid arthritis. Critical to this research is understanding how omega 3s interact with cells in our bodies.

The nugget of really sexy news for me is the information that kiwis are a source of omega-3s.

I’m thrilled to discover healthy omega 3s in a fruit, not a fish because while not a vegetarian at all, in writing about killing dolphins and the terrible things that we do to animals, in pursuit of eating them, I’m juggling many psychological balls around food these days.

Because I already digest omega -s whenever I can, I’m delighted to have a sexy, healthy fruit find today — one that also carries all the necessary visual effects to strike up our libido: round, juicy, sweet and melt-in your mouth.

I’ve always liked kiwis but they just got a whole lot more respect from me. Love, Anne
