What are the benefits of Omega-3 fatty acids?

Turns out, our oceans offer a treasure trove of some of the most nutrient-dense foods in nature, including fish rich in health-boosting Omega-3. And the Omega-3 benefits are endless! These healthy fats provide protection against coronary heart disease and play a crucial role in preventing various health issues, from cardiovascular diseases to cognitive impairment. So, the next time you choose your dinner, consider the fish of the day, especially if it's a fatty fish!

What exactly are Omega-3 fatty acids?

We’re glad you asked because they’re definitely worth talking about! Omega-3 is a family of polyunsaturated fatty acids that are vital for brain, vision and heart health. The key players include ALA, DHA, and EPA (which stand for alpha linolenic acid, docosahexaenoic acid, and eicosapentaenoic acid, respectively). DHA and EPA offer direct health benefits such as reducing chronic inflammation and protecting the heart and blood vessels, just to name a few.

How to boost my intake of essential fatty acids?

Unfortunately, our bodies cannot produce Omega-3 fatty acids on their own. But fear not! You can rest easy knowing that they can be obtained from various food sources. Get your ALA fatty acid fix from flaxseeds, walnuts, soy, and chia seeds, or add 2-3 weekly portions of fatty fish like tuna, salmon, mackerel, herring, or sardines for the ultimate health boost. White fish also contain some Omega-3 fatty acids, but not to the same extent. Also, opt for wild fish when possible, as they naturally contain higher levels of Omega-3. Hello bright eyes, shiny hair, and healthy nails!

What if I’m not a fish aficionado?

We anticipated this, considering the global intake of Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA is generally quite low. If you're not keen on incorporating fish into your diet, our Omega-3 fish oil supplement is a great solution! Derived from sustainably harvested wild-caught fish, this supplement is a convenient and effective way to ensure you get essential fatty acids. It's important to keep in mind that while our product contains sufficient amounts of DHA and EPA to support heart health, incorporating other sources like canola oil, nuts, and seeds into your diet enhances the full benefits of Omega-3.
Hopefully, we've inspired you to add foods rich in Omega-3 to your weekly grocery list!
