Since the beginning of time humans lived near the ocean and much of their food source came from the ocean. They were fortunate that fish and sea vegetables were among the healthiest foods. With the issues of today’s water we must be very particular where we get out supplies. There has been extensive scientific research on fatty acids found in fish and sea vegetables (the omega 3 fatty acids, which include EPA and DHA). These good fats produce substances called prostaglandins that regulate inflammation in your body. Omega 3 fatty acids also reduce blood thickness and stickiness, to help keep it moving and lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels, which in turn will lessen the risk and incidence of heart disease. The two primary essential fatty acids are linoleic acid an omega-6 fat, and alpha-linolenic acid, an omega-3 fat. The deficiency of omega-3 can potentially create serious results. Most Americans would improve their health if they consumed more omega-3 fat and less omega-6 fat. Adding omega-3's to your diet will enhance your health. Examples are Flaxseed, Fish, Chia or Hempseed.
