Omega 3 – Good Fats

.6 to 1.2 grams per day is considered an acceptable range according to the Daily Reference Intakes (DRI). Women 31-50 years – 1.1 grams. Well documented evidence show sufficient intake of these nutrients can prevent and reverse heart disease, diabetes, and cancers. There are three types of this ‘Essential Fatty Acid.’ ALA come from plant food sources such as Flaxseed, Flaxseed Oil, Walnuts and Canola oil. Our bodies can convert them into important EPA and DHA fatty acids but not always in sufficient quantities. EPA and DHA come from oily, cold water fish types such as salmon, herring and sardines. Since our brains contain a large quantity of DHA fatty acids, deficiencies in DHA have been associated with increased risk of developing Alzheimer’s, and dementia. DHA is also crucial for the proper brain and visual development during fetal and infancy growth.
