10 Things You Should Know about Omega 3s

I am frequently asked nutrition and health questions about omega 3.  Stuff like:  What is it?  Where do I find it?  Why is it good for me?  What if I don't want to have fish?  Given that my clients' FAQs are usually similar to everyone's FAQs, I thought it would be helpful to develop a top 10 things you should know about omega 3s.  I hope this will answer some of your questions about the big Os.

Is DHA Over-emphasized? Most researchers in the field of omega-3 agree upon the importance of DHA for optimal function of the brain, eyes and heart. However, DHA stays alive and active in the human brain for 5 years! Even if high quantities of DHA are consumed, only some 3.8mg are assimilated daily in the brain. Thus, despite the ALA’s low conversion ratio to DHA, clary sage seeds provide more than enough DHA for the brain’s functions.http://ecochicagoland.com/archives/1438

Thanks so much for your comments! My understanding of the DHA is the same. DHA has been touted for its beneficial impact on the brain, eyes and heart.

Thanks for reading!

Sincerely,
