Omega-3s: What they can do for you!

Omega 3s

are healthy fats that belong in every person’s diet:

  1. ALA (alpha-linolenic acid)
  2. EPA (eicosapentaenoic)
  3. DHA (docosahexaenoic acid)

They have major health benefits, the biggest one being that they help to prevent inflammatory diseases like heart disease and arthritis.

How to incorporate Omega 3s into your diet:

There are several ways to make sure you are getting your daily required intake of Omega 3s. Here are a few:

  1. 1 tsp of oil (particularly Olive Oil, Macadamia Nut Oil, Flax Seed Oil) on your vegetables twice-a-day
  2. Eat fish often or include a Fish Oil supplement into your meals

  1. Fantastic!
    Taking an approach to my diet which includes nearly 70% fat, I think it is really important to know which ones are the goodies.
    Love my eggs, salmon and avo oil!
    THanks for the info! 🙂
