Omega-3s! Omega-3s from fish and other marine sources help prevent heart disease, dementia, certain cancers, type 2 diabetes, and arthritis and boosts immunity, eye health, and lung function. They also increase IQ, especially in children and babies. Americans consume about 1.6 grams of omega-3 fatty acids per day on average, but 90% come from alpha-linolenic acid (ALA.) ALA comes from plant sources like vegetable oils or flaxseed. We don’t need ALA; we need eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) to reap the benefits listed above. You should also know that DHA is the most important fat in your brain and is more powerful than EPA. Be sure to look for a supplement that has 3 times more DHA than EPA, that has been independently tested to ensure that it is free of toxins such as PCBs and heavy metals like mercury and lead, and that has been 3rd party tested to contain the amount of omega-3s that they claim.
