The Health Benefits And The Reason We Need Omega-3 In Our Diet

What is Omega-3 and why we need to include it in our daily diet? Omega-3 is a essential fatty acid that plays an important role for human diet and psychology.

The daily consumption of Omega-3 fatty acids can help improve life quality by reducing the risks of developing cancer cells. It also helps by lowering body inflammation.

Here are a few sources from were you can take quality Omega-3 fatty acids:


Fish Oil

Usually coming from Cod Liver or Fish Skin, is a natural source of vitamins A and D.

Cod liver oil is a popular dietary supplement and an excellent source of these nutrients.

It contains two of the most useful forms of omega 3: docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). DHA and EPA contribute to the maintenance of normal blood pressure and heart function.

DHA also contributes to the maintenance of normal brain function and vision. Vitamin D has a role in maintaining healthy bones. Vitamin A contributes to normal vision, immune system and skin.


Krill Oil

Krill Oil is a great source of Omega-3 that is proved to function similar to Fish Oil except that Krill Oil also contains Astaxanthin, a marine-source keto-carotenoid antioxidant that may act synergistically with EPA and DHA.


Seed Oil

Seed Oils such as Flaxseed (Linseed) is actually considered to be 50% more powerful then most  Fish Oil in Omega-3 fatty acids.

Flaxseed is a natural source of the essential fatty acid Alpha Linolenic Acid which contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels. ALA is proven to help maintain normal blood cholesterol with a daily intake of 2,000mg.

This is a great source of Omega-3 fatty acids for people that follow a Vegan Diet
