You have probably already heard that omega-3 fatty acids (the good kind of fat) is essential to heart health. It has been found to help lower high cholesterol and high blood pressure and prevent heart disease. What you might not know is that omega-3 fatty acids can also help keep your brain healthy and strong. About 8% of your brain is made up of omega-3 fatty acids, which help build your neurons. According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, “Omega-3 fatty acids are highly concentrated in the brain and appear to be important for cognitive (brain memory and performance) and behavioral function.”
Since we humans cannot make our own omega-3 fatty acids, it is important that we consume them on a regular basis. They can be found in fatty fish, such as mackerel, herring, tuna, and salmon, or in nuts and seeds. If you worry that you are not getting enough omega-3 fatty acids in your diet, then consider supplementing with our Super Omega Oil. Our Super Omega Oil are plant-based, so there isn’t any fishy tastes that is commonly associated with fish oils. We recommend taking half a teaspoon in the morning and at night to help protect your heart and your brain!
