Omega 3s! There are few food sources that contain omega-3s and one of the richest sources of these essential fatty acids is found in salmon. Omega-3s are essential fats that our body needs and can’t make on its own. Many of the chronic diseases we see today (heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, alzheimers, etc…) result from inflammation. Studies consistently show a connection between higher omega-3 intake and reduced inflammation. Omega-3s curb inflammation in the blood vessels, brain and the rest of your body.
Omega-3 fatty acids come in more than one form. The types found in fish, called DHA and EPA, seem to have the strongest health benefits. Another form known as ALA is found in vegetable oils, flaxseed, walnuts, and dark leafy vegetables such as spinach. The body can change a small amount of ALA into EPA and DHA, but not very well. If you don’t eat fish don’t worry you can take a supplement.
