As we’ve all heard, our bodies require Omega-3 fatty acids for good health. Fortunately, these are bio-available from several well-known foods – but they often occur in small amounts. That means we need to focus on getting enough Omega-3’s by regularly consuming as many of these foods as possible.
For those who are concerned about the Omega 3-Omega 6 ratio, some of these listed foods do contain both types. However, it makes sense to me that natural foods that are organically grown (or from grass-fed animals) are not a health hazard. Omega-6 fats from artificial, refined food products cause the damage.
Here are some Omega-3-containing foods to consciously, regularly add to your intake:
Wild-caught oily fish, such as salmon
Flaxseeds (freshly ground) and flaxseed oil
Chia seeds, Pumpkin seeds
Green leafy vegetables, including kale, spinach, parsley, mint
Eggs from pastured chickens
Grass-fed cattle meats
Raw milk and raw cheese from grass-fed cows
Dr. Russell Blaylock tells us that Omega-3 fatty acids bring quite a number of health benefits. There are other contributing factors to good health, as well, but this is a great start. Here is a partial list:.
Aid in the prevention of preeclampsia ( sudden hypertension during pregnancy), premature births, depression, autoimmune diseases, arrhythmia, cardiovascular disease
Modulate anger, anxiety, fear, bipolar disorder
Protect the brain – of babies, children, and adults
As you pursue the goal of optimum health, please remember to include a variety of these Essential Fatty Acids (EFFs) foods in your daily diet.
