Omega 3 are mono/polyunsaturated fatty acids. and are essential for the proper functioning of our body.
Unfortunately, in our modern society, there has been a big imbalance in relation to these fatty acids. Indeed, we currently consume far too much omega 6 and not enough omega 3.
This balance should be one omega 3 for five omega 6, but it is currently 1 for 30 in France and 1 for 60 in the United States.
Enriching your diet with omega 3 and particularly EPA and DHA (fatty fish: sardines, salmon, etc.) can help you get back in shape and improve your health.
Omega 3s help fight cardiovascular disease and the risk of overweight by the fact that they improve the use of lipids by the body and the distribution of fat mass on the body. They have the reputation of helping to lose weight more quickly if they are coupled with daily physical activity and a good diet.
Add to this that they improve vision and promote the body’s use of good cholesterol.
The sources of omega 3 are numerous and very varied : oily fish (salmon, sardines, etc.), oilseeds (hazelnuts, pecans, almonds, etc.), cold-pressed vegetable oil (olives, flax, rapeseed, etc.), seeds (sesames , flax, poppy…etc).
Supplementing your diet with food supplements rich in omega 3 can be a good solution to improve the nutritional quality of your daily diet.
