Omega 3 provides a lot of benefits to a person’s health. It improves brain, heart and eye function, helps one lose weight and live longer and reduces inflammation. Unfortunately, it’s a fact that not all people are able to consume this fatty acid in their daily diet.
Omega 3 comes in three forms – alpha linolenic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Fish is richest in this kind of fatty acid. Other good sources include flaxseed oil, hempseed oil, chia seeds and algae.
People who aim to keep their brain sharp for the long term should ensure to make fish a major part of their daily diet. Research has shown that consuming omega 3s is effective in promoting brain health starting from the infant stage until old age.
