Omega 3 fatty acids are a class of essential fatty acids(meaning we need to get them through our diets and cannot produce them ourselves internally) that have a wide variety of health benefits. Omega 3 fatty acids are primary known for their anti-inflammatory and cholesterol lowering properties but have also been studied in diabetes, cancer and autoimmune conditions to name a few.

Most people think you can only get them from fish but high quality vegetable sources can also be found.

🌰

High in flax seeds and walnuts these can be great options to supplement if you choose not to use a fish source. Just be very mindful of quality since these oils oxidize(go rancid) very quickly if exposed to too much heat or light.
