Omega-3 fatty acids are lacking in most of our diets and it is crucial that this matter is addressed as omega 3 fatty acids are not only needed for our body to function but they also have a number of health benefits above and beyond normal functioning.
Omega–3 Fatty Acids DHA & EPA
Omega-3 fatty acids DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) can be found in a number of foods in which are recommended to be consumed 2 – 3 times per week to ensure your body receives an optimal amount, for example:
Omega-3 fatty acids can help to reduce elevated levels of blood lipids (triglycerides), balancing LDL and HDL cholesterol which can reduce your risk of heart disease, it can also be beneficial to those who tend to suffer with stiffness and joint pain such as rheumatoid arthritis; and recent evidence suggests that Omega-3's may prevent neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease and dementia.
As you can see there are a number of reasons as to why you should be ensuring you consume optimal amounts of omega-3. However for those who struggle to eat fish week in week out or those who are simply looking for a more convenient way to obtain optimal levels then supplementation is key.
PNI supplements have once again expanded their already industry leading product line to take what most would consider complex and make it simple by introducing, ‘PNI Fish Oils’.
