Omega 3s are not produced by the body and need to be consumed by whole foods- quality Omega 3s over quantity. Consuming Omega 3s from food sources are vital for our heart health, brain function, skin health and inflammation reduction.
Before jumping to foods advertised “High in Omega 3s” take a look around at the grocery store. Omega 3s are now artificially added to multiple kinds of processed foods- peanut butter, avocado oil, baby formula, protein powder for example- it is best to still opt for whole, raw food sources.
What are the risks of consuming too little Omega 3s:
- Heart disease and high cholesterol
- Digestive disorders
- Joint and Muscle Pain
- Mental disorders- depression
- Poor brain development
Soooo, where do you get your daily dose of Omega 3s from natural sources?
My favorite anti-inflammatory, gut friendly Omega 3 Source:
- Dandelion Greens
- Wild Alaskan Salmon
- Cod Oil
- Raw Walnuts
- Wild Rice
- Sesame Seeds
- Raw Tahini Butter
