Here’s what you need to know:

What is omega-3?
Omega-3 is a fatty acid. But do not be put off by the word “fat”! This is a fat that you do not want to be cutting back on.

Why is omega-3 good for me?
Omega-3 fatty acids are a type of polyunsaturated fat that are used for all sorts of bodily processes including blood clotting and the building of cell membranes. It has also been shown by a variety of studies to help prevent against or reduce the risk of a host of health issues including: cardiovascular disease, rheumatoid arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease and many more. It’s something of a health superhero.

Why do I need to include it my diet?
Simply because omega-3 can’t be created naturally by the body, hence why it’s called an “essential nutrient”. You need to eat food containing omega-3 or you will never get the benefits it could provide you.

Where can I find omega-3?
Foods such as pumpkin, butternut squash, soy beans, smoked salmon, oily fish like mackerel; walnuts and spinach are all high in omega-3. And then there are Flaxseeds, also known as linseeds. They are packed with more omega-3 than anything else!
You could also try taking supplements like cod liver oil tablets. If you want more information check out this great omega-3 food list.

So now you know: what omega-3 is, how it helps your body and where you can find it! If you want your body to stay healthy and beautiful then you should really look at how you can incorporate more omega-3 into your diet.
