As readers of our newsletters, articles, and tips, you should know lots about omega-3 fatty acids and their potential at improving your health.
If you have missed the news or our articles, then here, in a nutshell, are some of the awesome benefits of omega-3 fats:
• Improves heart health
• Improves brain health
• May reduce depression
• May decrease triglycerides and LDL cholesterol
• May increase HDL cholesterol
• Improves eye health
• May decrease risk for Alzheimer’s disease
• May help in reproductive health
• And much, much more
The fact is, omega-3 fatty acids are fats that your body NEEDS and you should be consuming daily.
But the question is: what foods contain omega-3 fatty acids?
Well, I’m so glad you asked…
Top Sources of Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Now, you may already be thinking you can get plenty of omega-3 fatty acids from things like salmon (fatty fish) and fish oil.
And of course, you would be correct.
But what you may not know – and what many people don’t – is that there are other sources of omega-3 fatty acids that you may or may not currently use every day.
Now, fish plays a big role in omega-3 fats. In fact, fatty fish possess some of the highest quantity of omega-3 fatty acids of any food product.
And, fish also is a great source of protein, other fats, vitamins, and minerals that your body needs in order to burn fat, keep the weight off, and support healthy cells in your body.
Today, we want to share with you some other food sources where you may be able to get adequate sources of omega-3 fats – all which may enhance and support a healthier lifestyle.
1. Omega-3 Eggs
Now, everyday, run-of-the-mill, eggs are just not going to give you omega-3 fatty acids.
Omega-3 rich eggs come from chickens fed a specialized diet that increases the content of omega-3 fatty acids found within the egg.
In fact, some eggs have up to seven times the amount of omega-3 fatty acids compared to regular eggs.
So ditch your old eggs and start using omega-3 enriched eggs for better overall health.
Krill are small crusteceans located in the southern seas and are commonly referred to as Antarctic Krill.
They are a food source for penguins, whales, seals, and other marine life that inhabit the southern waters.
However, they are also an abundant source of omega-3 fatty acids - and possibly a better source than regular fish oil.
What makes krill oil so powerful?
Due to its makeup, the EPA and DHA found in krill oil is more bioavailable for the body to process and absorb the nutrients more effectively.
Krill oil should be included into your daily plan for optimal nutrition.
And no, I am not talking about Krill and fish oil (although they do contain omega-3 fats). The oils I am talking about are olive oil, flaxseed oil, and plant-based oils.
Most of these oils contain omega-3 fatty acids in the form of ALA – which is great.
However, there is one problem with ALA: when your body breaks down the ALA into DHA and EPA, you may lose a lot of the DHA and EPA due to the conversion process.
And, if your body doesn’t need the fats at the time, then it won’t use it. This is just the way the body works.
Although there are limitations, including plant-based sources – such as ALA – could be just as beneficial to your body as other omega-3 sources.
The BEST Sources of Omega-3 Fats
Although there are many sources of omega-3 fatty acids, there really are two sources that may be considered optimal.
Sources, such as fatty fish (recommended three times per week) and krill oil, may be two of the best ways to get omega-3 fatty acids into your day.
No matter how you get more omega-3 fatty acids into your daily routine, you should know that you may be improving your health just by including this healthy fat daily.
