Speaking of Monday, we started talking about how important Omega-3’s are to our body, especially as people that exercise and train regularly. I tried to cover the basics as to what they are and what they do.
Today, let’s talk about where we can get these great fatty acids and what they do for our bodies!
So…where can I get these fabulous Omega-3’s?
Excellent sources: flaxseed, walnuts, and salmon
Very Good sources: cloves, oregano, cauliflower, cabbage, broccoli, mustard seeds
Good sources: brussel sprouts, tofu, halibut, spinach, kale, shrimp, strawberries, tuna
There are also many options out there for fish oil supplement. I would recommend going to your nearest health food store and talking to a nutritionist there, or talking to your doctor. They can be very helpful in determining how much you need and what kind to buy.
So…what health conditions does it help improve?
- Alzheimer's disease
- Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
- Bipolar disorder
- Cardiovascular disease
- High blood pressure
- Huntington's disease
- Migraine headaches
- Multiple sclerosis
- Rheumatoid arthritis
Pretty amazing, right?
Well…I’m signing off. But I’ll leave you with a picture to hint of things to come!
