4 Ways Omega-3 Fatty Acids Are Great for Your Health
Fish is one of the best sources of omega-3 fatty acids, and among different types of fish, tuna ranks as one of the most plentiful sources along with mackerel, wild salmon, and herring.
But what are omega-3 fatty acids and why are they such a consistent component of superfoods?
FinerFin is sharing four ways why omega-3s are great for your health.
1. Essential Component of Heart Health
Studies have found that people who have at least one serving of seafood per week are less likely to die of heart disease than those who eat little to no fish. A recent recommendation says eight or more ounces of a variety of seafood per week is best.
2. Omega-3s Through Food Is Better Than a Supplement
Getting your omega-3 consumption through food instead of a supplement has a greater impact on your heart health, according to research. Evidence shows that supplements of EPA and DHA do not offer protection against heart disease.3. Omega-3s Can Be Important for Fetal Development
Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding are advised to have eight to 12 ounces of seafood per week (that’s low in mercury). The EPA and DHA that omega-3s contain have been shown to be important for fetal development and brain growth in infants and into childhood.4. May Reduce Symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis
Rheumatoid arthritis can be a painful chronic condition, but studies show that when participants were consuming fish oil, they had less joint swelling and pain, less need for anti-inflammatory medication, and less time suffering from stiff joints in the morning.
