Omega-3 Fatty Acids Benefits

Omega-3 fatty acids are among the most widely used supplements today. Omega-3 fatty acids are a type of polyunsaturated fat, with the three most components being ALA (a-linolenic acid), DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), and EPA (eicosatetraenoic acid). They offer numerous powerful health benefits for your body and brain, making omega-3 fatty acids a vital part of every diet.

Very few nutrients have been as extensively studied as omega-3 fatty acids. So, what are the benefits of omega-3? They are able to help with depression and anxiety. Studies have shown that people who start taking omega-3s have improved their symptoms, in conjunction with people who regularly take these fatty acids being less likely to become depressed.  

Omega-3 fatty acids can also improve factors that lead to heart disease, the world’s leading cause of death. They can lower blood pressure in people who need it and are able to raise HDL (good) cholesterol levels. The fatty acids are also able to reduce triglycerides by approximately 15-30% while helping prevent artery plaque by helping keep them smooth and free from damage. Lastly, omega-3s may stop blood platelets from comping, helping prevent formation of blood clots.

Your body’s inability to make omega-3 fatty acids in conjunction with the typical western diet makes this an essential supplement to add into your routine.
