Guest Report - The Importance of Omega 3 Fatty Acids

 

You have probably heard that omega-3 fatty acids are important for your health, but have you ever wondered why? An abundance of scientific research indicates that these healthy fats can prevent and treat a host of chronic diseases including heart disease, depression, obesity, migraine headaches and arthritis. 

Omega-3 fatty acids are polyunsaturated, and the 3 most important components are alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). They are considered essential to your diet because the body is unable to manufacturer them on its own. These fatty acids are critical in promoting healthy cell membranes, reducing inflammation, and improving blood flow. Recent statistics report that most Americans do not get enough Omega-3s in their diet. 

Consider supplementation of Omega-3 fatty acids, by talking with your health care provider, pharmacist or health coach about what type is right for you. You can also get Omega-3s and other important nutrients into your body by consuming foods like flax seeds and walnuts. Other top ranking Omega-3 foods include salmon, sardines, soybeans, grass fed beef, tofu, and kidney beans. Feeling kind of fishy? Great! Just two servings of non-fried fish per week, like tuna, salmon and halibut, can significantly increase your blood levels of Omega-3 fatty acids. 

Increase your Omega-3s to prevent heart disease, and inflammatory conditions and you will “Feel Better and Live Longer!”.
