How to Choose an Omega 3 Supplement

How to Choose an Omega 3 Supplement

It’s hard not to get excited about Omega 3’s especially with our newest vegan option!

Omega 3’s are healthy unsaturated fats (oils) that are essential to our health.  There are 3 main types: DHA, EPA and ALA.  The majority of DHA and EPA are found in fatty fish such as salmon, mackerel, anchovies, sardine, as well as algae and seaweed.  ALA on the other hand, can be found primarily in plant sources such as chia seeds, flax seeds, and walnuts.  It’s important to have the appropriate balance of all 3 which may vary based on your individual needs!


Benefits of Omega 3's

  • Reduce inflammation
  • Support the cardiovascular system by lowering blood pressure.  Reducing the development of plaque build-up in the arteries.  Decrease the likelihood of stroke and heart attack.
  • Benefit cognitive development in kids and reduce cognitive deficits/decline as we age. 
  • Good for your skin as Omega 3’s support the structure of our cells and improve our skin barrier.
