What Are Omega 3 Fats?

Benefits Of Omega 3 Fatty Acids

Omega 3 fatty acids are known as polyunsaturated fatty acids. They are found in marine animals and some plant oils. They are considered necessary for our human health. Omega-3 fatty acids are commonly found in fish, such as salmon and tuna.

There are 2 common types of acids found in Omega 3 fats:

  1. EPA (Eicosapentaenoic acid)
  2. DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid)

EPA and DHA are vital nutrients and may be taken to maintain healthy function of the brain development and retina. Omega 3 fats slow age related memory loss. Besides, they also aid in reducing the risk of heart diseases.

Research shows that taking Omega 3 diets and supplements have the following health benefits:

  1. Lowers blood pressure for people with hypertension

Why Do We Need Omega 3 And DHA As Brain Food?

Fats make up 60% of the brain and nerves that run every system in our body. So it is important that we get the right kind of fats. Omega 3 are known as the head to tail nutrient.

Omega supports the brain development of children, hence there are many brands of milk powder which contains Omega. Pregnant and breast feeding women should take Omega for its supporting role in a child’s brain development, helping the child to become more focussed and smarter. Omega is also very important for the elderly. It helps to support the function of the brain.

Research has shown that one of the essential top fats in our brain is Omega 3. It plays an important role to our health to function it properly. It helps memory cells in the brain to communicate more efficiently. Omega 3 supplements have been shown to prevent memory impairment and speed recovery from depression.

Omega 3 is also the number 1 scientifically researched supplement. They come in all forms; oils, capsules, drinks or chewy snacks. Omega 3 fats are not produced in the body, hence they have to be obtained from foods and supplements.

REMEMBER – Daily exercise and the Quality of Your Sleep have a powerful effect on your memory too. Taking vitamins supplements won’t offset an unbalanced lifestyle

You can also visit Amazon Store for more Omega 3 supplements there. I love to hear from you. Please feel free to  comment below if you have any thoughts to share.

    Frankly speaking i do not like to consume fish. Let alone having fish oil? But that is when i do not understand the importance of Omega 3. I really appreciate your explaination of Omega 3 really made me change my thinking about fish. I have already asked my wife to buy some tuna and salmon back home and i’m all ready!
    Anyway this is a great article. I like it.
    Thank you

      Hi Mike,

      thank you for visiting my website and I am glad that you have enjoyed reading my article. Some people do not like to consume fish because of the ‘fishy’ smell. You can try adding some ginger to the fish to rid the smell during cooking. Alternatively you can try taking Omega 3 vitamin supplements or Omega 3 Deluxe Nut Mix as a healthy snack .

    Hello Wesley, I had no idea that taking omega 3 will help aid in brain development for the baby while the woman is pregnant. My fiance and I already have a two year old son but plan on adding to the family in the near future. I’ll definitely take and implement that for when we have out second child. Thanks for the information

      Hi Alex

      I am glad that you have found some useful information here. Research has suggested that babies whose diets include essential fats such as Omega 3 fatty acids, seems to have an edge in terms of early development. Now new research shows that the same is true for infants born to mothers whose diets contain plenty of this essential fatty acid.

    Omega 3 Fatty Acids are awesome.

    I used to suffer from severe depression and one of my doctors recommended me balancing my diet.

    A few Omega 3 fatty acid pills and B12 injection and there was a very noticeable improvement in my condition.

    I definitely can relate to what you’re writing here!

    Cheers, Vlad!

    After reading your post here, I now understand how important it is in getting Omega 3 fatty acids into your diet, as I was already aware of some of the benefits in having it but wasn’t aware of how good it is for the brain.

    I wasn’t aware that fats make up 60% of your brain and nerves and that Omega 3 is one of the essential fats that you need to have to keep it functioning properly.

    Fortunately I have salmon in my diet and I prefer to having it naturally than having supplements, so thanks for the info that you have shared in your post.

      Hi Adrian

      I am glad to hear that you are having salmon as one of your regular diet. Salmon is in fact one of nature’s best sources of DHA, an essential fatty acid, important for brain health. Two servings of salmon a week should do the trick for keeping your brain cells working properly and reducing your risk of neurological disease. Do stay healthy by having proper diet and taking an active lifestyle.

    Hi Wesley
    I like the way you have explained this post, i wasn’t really sure about the benefits of omega, so i am glad i have come across this.
    Memory loss plays a big part in my life as my father had vascular dementia so anything i can learn about omega 3 the better, i do not really like fish that much but will be willing to try it, is there anything that i could add to it to disguise the smell? as i am not overly keen with that,
    Would you grill the fish or put in the oven? or does it not make a difference.
    This is so informative that i am going to print and stick on my fridge, thank you for this interesting and informative post 🙂

      Hi Sharon

      I am happy to hear that you enjoy reading my post. Glad you found some useful information here. Some people don’t like to take fish because of the “fishy” smell. My preference is to steam the fish. Put some slices of ginger on top and below the fish and steam for 10 minutes. Drain out the excess water and remove the ginger. Steam for another 8-10 minutes, remove any excess water and add some light soy sauce for better taste. You should enjoy your healthy dish. Cheers!
