Impressive facts of Omega 3

Assalamualaikum everyone... as for today I will write the entry in English. Well, just for a change...hehe . Today I would like to share about the benefits of Omega 3, a type of fatty acid that highly contain in fish oil.

First of all, what is omega 3 and why we need it in our diet?

Omega-3 fatty acids (also known as n-3 fatty acids) are polyunsaturated fatty acids that are essential nutrients for health. We need omega-3 fatty acids for numerous normal body functions, such as controlling blood clotting and building cell membranes in the brain, and since our bodies cannot make omega-3 fats, we must get them through food. Omega-3 fatty acids are also associated with many health benefits, including protection against heart disease and possibly stroke. New studies are identifying potential benefits for a wide range of conditions including cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, and other autoimmune diseases such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.

that's why it is highly recommended to pregnant lady to take omega 3 for brain development of the baby. 

Secondly, is it better to get omega 3 fatty acid from food or supplements? 

Certainly foods, since the plants and fish that contain omega-3 fats have other good nutrients, such as protein, vitamins and minerals. People who do not eat fish or other foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids should consider taking an omega-3 supplement of 500 mg per day; fish oil is used in supplements.  Studies suggest that people who have already had a heart attack may benefit from higher doses of omega-3 supplements (basically, double the 500 mg), so if you do have heart disease.

  • All omega 3 sources are anti-lipogenic (they block fat storage in your body) and increase your metabolic rate, so you burn body fat faster
