Many people seem to believe that avoiding fat is the proper way to maintain a healthy diet. However, some fat’s can be extremely beneficial to your diet. Omega 3 fatty acids have been proven to be an essential part of the daily diet. This amazing nutritional fact was originally discovered by scientists revealing the superior health of the Inuit’s of Greenland due to their high consumption of coldwater fish. Along with fish oils, the highest concentration of Omega 3’s can be found in cereals containing seeds such as flax and chia as well as in various fruits, vegetables, and nuts.

 

Laurie Tansman, a nutritionist at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York claimed, “It not only plays a vital role in the health of the membrane of every cell in our body, it also helps protect us from a number of key health threats.”

 

Omega 3 fatty acids can reduce the risk of heart disease and strokes, as well as work as “brain enhancer” to stimulate learning capabilities and memory. Other health benefits include promoting better joint mobility, skin complexion, respiratory system, and weight maintenance.

 

There is really no way of losing out through consuming this everyday essential fatty acid!
