Omega 3 Essential Fatty Acids (EFA’s)
The types of omega-3 fatty acids found in fish – docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) – are the ones you’ve likely heard are particularly good for your cardiovascular system (and they have other well-noted health benefits).
The type of omega’s found in walnuts – and other plant food such as hempseed, flaxseed and chia seeds – are alpha-linolenic acid. ALA rich foods are good for you too! Many studies have shown that people who consume sufficient amounts of ALA levels tend to have lower levels of inflammatory chemicals in their system.
So what’s the best/easiest way to get both of these important and essential nutrients into your diet?
