Most women dread the word “ FAT” ...
After all, saturated fats (found in meat, dairy and eggs) or trans fats (found in foods like French fries, cookies, cakes, etc.) are definitely bad for health. ————————————————-
But not all dietary fats are created equal!!!!! ✅monounsaturated fats and ✅polyunsaturated fats,are good for health and helps reduce the risk of heart disease. ..... In particular, 👉🏼👉🏼 omega-3, a type of polyunsaturated fat, is key to optimal health and as our body cannot produce it on its own, it is essential to get omega-3 from our daily diet( or supplement it )
✔️✔️ Let’s understand OMEGA -3 .
There are different forms of omega-3 fatty acids – alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). Now the latter two, which are found in certain types of fish, are WHAT ARE BODIES NEED THE MOST🙌🏼
❓So are FLAX SEEDS enough then❓❓
ALA, a more basic form of omega-3 found in plant sources like flaxseed, is also good as it can be partially converted into DHA and EPA in the body ,BUT the way the body does so is inadequate. Also, DHA and EPA have better established health benefits than ALA, such as boosting heart health and brain power🙂
