Making the distinction between good and bad fats might help you decide which fats to shun and which to consume in moderation.
Because our bodies need fat for some vital functions - like the absorption of vitamins. Made up of 3 fatty acids - EPA and DHA (found only in fatty fish) and ALA (found in plant-based foods like nuts and seeds), Omega-3 fatty acids are the most essential of fats.
3 reasons to take Omega-3:
- Helps lower triglyceride levels and risk of heart attack
- Helps manage rheumatoid arthritis better
- Helps in neurological development in newborns.
Two servings of fish a week is ideal. If you have heart problems and don't eat fish regularly, your doctor may suggest EPA and DHA supplements. Vegetarians can get their fix of Omega-3 by adding flaxseed powder and walnuts to their diet.
