Can You Eat Enough Omega 3's?

Deficiency in Omega-3 can lead to cardiovascular disease, inflammatory disorders, cancer, and even and mental health issues. Most people know the benefits of Omega-3s to living a healthy life, but they’re not sure how to eat a diet full of Omerga-3s, or if it’s even possible to eat enough Omega 3s to stay healthy.

If your diet lacks adequate amounts of omega-3 fatty acids there are specific health risks, including diabetes, strong PMS symptoms, coronary artery disease, heart disease, breast cancer, depression, rheumatoid arthritis, and high cholesterol. Making sure you get enough Omega 3s is crucial to warding off these health issues, but, there is no easy way to regularly measure your Omega-3s. Since most Americans don’t get enough Omega 3s in their diet, it is safe to assume your diet could use a boost.

Foods Rich in Omega-3

Fatty Omega-3s are found in oily, cold water fish like salmon, herring, and sardines. You can also add Omega-3s with walnuts, hemp seed oil, soy, canola oils, and eggs with added Omega-3. You will also find other foods that have been fortified with Omega-3s, including dairy products, yogurt, fruit juices, nutrition and weight-loss shakes, bread, flours, etc. It is a good to note that you need to eat fatty fish at least 3 times a week to get close to enough Omega-3 derived from fish.

When Diet Just Isn’t Enough

If that isn’t realistic for your lifestyle or diet, consider an Omega-3 supplement that can ensure you get the Omega-3s your body needs. If swallowing pills is difficult or you have digestive tract issues, try our Omega-3 patch, which will help you get the Omega-3s you need over the course of a day.

For many of us, gift giving is the biggest stress of the holiday season - from finding time to shop, to selecting the right gift, to getting the best price. We struggle emotionally knowing gifts often hold symbolic meaning for the recipient; yet, not having other ideas, we go to our default mode of shopping big box retailers for the "latest and greatest." We do this despite the fact that these products tend to become outdated or lose their appeal within days.
