Happy Wednesday to you!
Do you eat enough Omega 3 foods? Do you know what they are, and what they do for your body? Consider this:
*Omega-3 fatty acids are considered essential fatty acids. They are essential to human health but cannot be manufactured by the body. For this reason, omega-3 fatty acids must be obtained from food.
*Omega 3 acids are also known as polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs). These fatty acids play a crucial role in brain function as well as normal growth and development.
*Extensive research indicates that Omega-3 fatty acids reduce inflammation and help prevent risk factors associated with chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and arthritis.
*Symptoms of omega-3 fatty acid deficiency include extreme tiredness (fatigue), poor memory, dry skin, heart problems, mood swings or depression, and poor circulation.
YOUR CHALLENGE FOR TODAY: Make sure to eat some foods that are rich in Omega 3 acids. What are they? I am so glad that you asked!
Omega 3 Rich Foods:
*Fish and seafood such as salmon, halibut, mackerel, sardines, herring, trout, swordfish, shark, tuna and scallops
*Soybeans & tofu
