WHY OMEGA 3
Is it compulsory ?
No it is optional - nothing is forced - but it is recommended.
omega-3 fatty acids are good for us.
These fats support cardiovascular function, nervous system function, brain development, and all around immune health. Plus a whole lot of other stuff.
When we talk about omega-3s, generally we’re referring to:
eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA),
docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), and
αlpha-linoliec acid (ALA).
EPA and DHA are the omega-3 powerhouses that have been shown to be the most beneficial in all of the research.
ALA, on the other hand, is considered a “parent” omega-3. That’s because ALA has to be converted to EPA and DHA. Only then can these critical fats do their health-promoting work.
In terms of diet, EPA and DHA are primarily available in marine animal sources (i.e. fish). And ALA is available in plant-based sources such as flax, walnuts, chia and hemp.
In the end, when you eat ALA containing foods like flax or chia or walnuts, you’re crossing your fingers and hoping enough of it gets converted to EPA and DHA. (Eating fish and taking fish oil supplements gets you the EPA and DHA directly).
So while this is optional it is recommended.
You can either get a DHA EPA vitamin from your chemist like FOL-DHA or you can get the omega 3 - 1000 mg from health kart
