What is Omega-3?
Omega-3 fatty acids are a special type of polyunsaturated
fat. Today, science is validating more and more healthful
benefits that Omega-3 fats can have on the human mind and
body. Several studies have shown that relatively small
amounts of these Omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the pain
and inflammation from some types of arthritis, lower
triglyceride levels, and reduce the incidence of sudden
cardiac death by 50% or more in both men and women.
Omega-3 fatty acids are emerging as an important
nutritional element in brain science and very important on
infant brain development. Omega-3 fatty acids are found in
cold, deep-water fish such as salmon, mackerel, tuna and
sardines. One draw back to omega-3 rich fish is that they
are high in fat, cholesterol, cancer and toxins such as
mercury. However, there is a way to have the benefit of the
omega-3 fatty acids without eating fish, fish oil, or expensive
supplements. The way is so simple. You can get omega-3
from rich PLANT-BASED oils such as flaxseed, soybean,
walnut, canola oil without cholesterol, cancer, toxin such as
mercury. I have included many delicious recipes in all my
cookbooks that are very high in Omega-3 fatty acids. My
recommendation would be to include foods high in omega-3
in one meal each day.
