The Health Benefits of Omega 3

Salmon

The other night, we made salmon for dinner and it was wonderful!

I started thinking about all the benefits of Omega-3 and how important it is to include it into your daily routine. The thing about Omega-3 is that the body is unable to make it on its own so the only way to get it is by diet and supplementation. There are three types of Omega-3 include: EPA and DHA which are mainly found in fish and then ALA which is found in plant sources.

Foods that are high in Omega-3 fatty acids are: salmon, mackerel and herring. Plant sourcea include: walnuts, flaxseeds and canola oil.

The benefits of adding Omega-3 to your daily routine include:

1. Decreases the risk of cardiovascular disease.

2. Reduces cholesterol.

3. Reduces blood pressure.

4. Helps with inflammation.

5. Helps with healthy brain function.

Hope these tips were helpful!!!

Here’s to your health!! πŸ™‚
