OMEGA- 3S

Better Nutrition - - THE WISE FAT BURNER -

Omega- 3 fatty acids are com­monly found in seafood, nuts, and spinach. There are three types of omega- 3s: alpha- linolenic acid ( ALA), eicos­apen­taenoic acid ( EPA), and do­cosa­hex­aenoic acid ( DHA). Both EPA and DHA are found in seafood, while ALA is a plant- based nu­tri­ent found in wal­nuts, fl axseeds, and other foods.

Re­cent stud­ies have shown EPA to be most eff ec­tive in com­bat­ing de­pres­sion. In fact, a ran­dom­ized, dou­ble- blind, placebo- con­trolled study pub­lished in the Jour­nal of Psy­chi­a­try Re­search found that a group of young adults who took omega- 3 fatty acids had sig­nifi cantly lower symp­toms of de­pres­sion than a placebo group.

Feast­ing on salmon, hal­ibut, sar­dines, al­ba­core, trout, and her­ring will get you a healthy dose of omega- 3s. If you’re veg­e­tar­ian or ve­gan, fo­cus on in­creas­ing your in­take of wal­nuts, spinach, fl axseed oil, hempseed oil, canola oil, and mi­croal­gae oil.
