Here's what you need to know about the importance of Omega-3 for your health.
We've all heard that omega-3s are important supplements to include in our diets. But why are they so important, and what sets these supplements apart from all the others in your pantry?
Omega-3s are essential fatty acids found in fish such as tuna, salmon and halibut as well as in some plants and nut oils. They're considered vital because the chemical makeup of omega-3s is necessary for the maintenance of overall good health. Omega-3s can even help support a healthy heart, cognitive health and brain function.
But even with omega-3's health-boosting prowess, it can be challenging to eat enough fish every week to get the required amount. Fortunately, the process has become a little simpler with OmegaSea: an omega-3 potent liquid supplement that's convenient and tastes amazing for even the pickiest of family members. With three delicious flavours including chocolate, lemon and bubblegum bonanza for kids, OmegaSea can be easily added into smoothies, shakes and even cold salad (especially the lemony lemon flavour) without that fishy burp-back that you get from liquid capsules.
In addition to its diverse flavours, high-quality ingredients and incredible benefits for your heart, body and mind, here are some of the ways that just one teaspoon of OmegaSea a day will keep you and your loved ones healthy and strong for years to come.
Research has suggested that EPA and DHA ( eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid), the two omega-3 fatty acids found in OmegaSea, help support and maintain cardiovascular health in adults.
Vitamin D assists in the absorption and use of calcium, which is essential in the development and maintenance of healthy bones. Formulated with 1,000 IU (international units) of vitamin D, OmegaSea helps in the development and preservation of teeth and bones. Interestingly, a recent (2017) study found that vitamin D insufficiency among Canadian children is on the rise despite dietary guidelines that have been amended to help improve intake1.
Omega-3 fatty acids help support cognitive health and brain function. This is because DHA is a fundamental structural component of the cerebral cortex, which is responsible for memory, language, creativity, judgment and emotion2. Accounting for over 90 percent of all omega-3 fatty acids in the brain, DHA is crucial for building brain cell membranes and nerve cell. This means that OmegaSea is not only good for the maintenance of your health, it will support your cognitive health too and make you feel good as well!
Omega-3 fatty acids are considered essential for a reason. They are necessary for the maintenance of a healthy heart and brain function. Instead of adding another pill to your supplement box, try incorporating just one teaspoon of OmegaSea into your diet for a tasty and convenient way to get the omega-3s your body (and heart and mind!) need.
