We all know that Omegas are good for you, right? What do they really do for your body? Here’s the skinnny:
The big hype is about Omega-3, a fatty acid found in foods like walnuts, some fruits and vegetables, and cold-water fish such as herring, anchovies and many more is a “long-chain” essential fatty acid (named essential because they cannot be produced by the body). Omega 3 has been linked to benefits in heart health, vision, brain function, immune diseases, and many more benefits.
Fishy Omega 3:
Our bodies naturally absorbs Omega-3s from fish, fortified foods and fish oils.
However, the absorption of Omega-3s from consuming fish is greater than a pure fish-oil supplement because the supplement absorption is only increased if other fat-containing foods are consumed with them. Absorption is greater as the amount of Omega-3s increases. Therefore, eating the fish allows for the body to consume the Omega-3 from the fish oil as well as the other nutrients from the fish itself.
If you like fish, eat more of our fishy-friends! You can thank them later.
And, if you can’t stand the taste of fish, you’re vegetarian, vegan, or simply don’t eat fish taking a supplement is a great choice. Your body can still be rewarded from the benefits of the Omegas.
