When trying to live a healthier lifestyle, doctors may tell you to cut the fat but, not all fats are unhealthy.
Omega-3 fatty acids, for example, have many health benefits. Studies have shown that Omega 3 fatty acids help lower the risk of heart disease as well as protecting against symptoms of depression, dementia, cancer, and arthritis.
The best source of omega-3 fatty acids is fish. Popular choices are salmon, mackerel, herring, lake trout, sardines, anchovies, and tuna. The American Heart Association recommends at least two servings a week of fish, which is 3.5 ounces of cooked fish or ¾ cup of flaked fish. If you don’t like fish, you can get omega-3 from supplements. I recommend the Beachbody Omega 3 as it is what I take. No yucky after-taste.
Always consult with your Doctor before taking any kind of supplement so that you can verify that it is the right product for you.
