What Are The Best Sources For Omega-3

The best sources from Omega-3 are normally found in a variety of sea foods and vegetables, which will be explained in this blog. Omega-3 is called the miracle food of the 21st century. A large number of medical research studies have concluded that Omega-3 oil helps in the prevention of a variety of illnesses. For example, Omega-3 is critical in the prevention of heart disease. It decreases the risks of abnormal heart rhythm, reduces the levels of unhealthy fats in the bloodstream, and slows the build-up of plaque in the blood vessels. Omega-3 will help you maintain optimum blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Omega-3 is believed to reduce inflammation and can give relief to joint pain, migraines, depression, and autoimmune diseases. Omega-3 assists with healthy brain development and memory function.

Omega-3 fatty oils are found in many forms. DHA and EPA are found in certain types of fish. The best types of fish for Omega-3 include: salmon, mackerel, herring, lake trout, sardines, anchovies, and tuna. These healthy ocean foods appear to have the strongest health benefits. The recommended dose is two or three servings per week. ALA, another form of Omega-3 is found in flaxseeds, walnuts, and dark leafy vegetables. Our bodies can't naturally product Omega-3, so we must receive it from our diet.

Unfortunately, Omega-3's can increase cholesterol, both the good and bad kinds. Individuals with high triglycerides should consult with their doctor before taking Omega-3. Pregnant women, nursing moms, and children should limit their intake of fish. Eating foods rich in Omega-3 is generally quite safe.

For individuals who do not like fish, Omega-3 supplements are another method of receiving the healthy Omega-3 oil. People with cardiovascular disease should take about 1 gram per day. At higher dosages, Omega-3 could interfere with some medications and may increase the risk of bleeding.
