Do you suffer from an Omega 3 deficiency or simply wish to regain a good heart and brain balance? Follow a course of food supplements based on Omega 3 and stay healthy! We will tell you all the secrets of this essential fatty acid.
The benefits of taking food supplements rich in Omega 3
According to the CNIB 2 study, the majority of French people are deficient in omega 3. This is primarily due to the body’s inability to produce enough omega-3s, so including omega-3s in the diet is the only solution. However, many people do not always have the reflex to vary their diet and fill up with nutrients. Moreover, the omega 3 content of foodstuffs is not always sufficient to make up for these deficiencies.
It is in this context that taking an Omega 3 dietary supplement proves to be a good alternative. Dietary supplementation will indeed make it possible to regulate the rate of nutrients consumed, and thus promote better functioning of the body.
Dietary supplements can take several forms, but those based on Omega 3 generally come in fish oil capsules. The Lescuyer laboratory also offers products rich in essential fatty acids, including Omega 3 for a brain and a healthy cardiovascular system.
What foods should I eat to fill up with Omega 3?
Omega 3 is an essential fatty acid with many virtues, allowing the body to function properly. It is good for the heart, actively contributes to the nervous and cerebral balance of the human body, but also improves eyesight. On the other hand, Omega 3 is said to help keep morale up, thanks to its direct action in the neurons. To be well in one’s head, and to keep the joy of living, there is nothing better than having a sufficient daily intake of Omega 3.
Even if this substance cannot be reproduced by the human organism, it is found in many foods. This is why it is important to consume a sufficient and regular quantity of these foods in order to stay healthy. Cod liver oil is the most famous, to fill up with Omega 3. It contains 2664 mg per teaspoon. Linseeds are also good carriers of Omega 3, at a rate of 2338 mg per teaspoon. Mackerel, salmon, nuts… All these foods are rich in this essential fatty acid.
