All the Benefits of Omega 3

All the Benefits of Omega 3

Omega 3 is a fatty acid that is very important for your body and your brain. Unfortunately it is one of the few that our body cannot proceed itself. So all the omega 3 that our bodies need must be consumed from outside sources. There are three main types of Omega 3, alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). The ALA type is mainly found in plants like soybeans and flaxseed. The EPA and DHA types are found in fish and other seafood. 

Omega 3 is so important it is part of the ingredients that makes up the membrane that surrounds every cell in your body. it is particularly important organs like your eyes, brain, lungs, and heart. 

With such an important role omega 3 is not something we should ignore!
