Healthy fats are a popular topic nowadays, and you may have heard a lot about them in the news. In particular, omega-3 fatty acids get attention for their heart and other benefits. Many people do not get enough from their diets, and the Omega-3 Vitamin Patch from PatchAid can deliver omega-3 fats. Here is what to know about the benefits of omega-3 fats and how to get more of them.
Benefits of Omega-3 Fats Related to Heart Health
Omega-3 fatty acids may be best known for their role in heart health, as they are linked to improved heart health. People with higher levels of omega-3 fats tend to have lower rates of coronary heart disease, stroke, heart attacks, and cardiovascular disease. You may think of the heart when you think of omega-3 fats, but they have other roles.
Other Benefits of Omega-3 Fats
Omega-3 fats are needed for healthy vision and brain development. They may be linked to lower risk for premature birth in infants. In addition, omega-3 fat content may be linked to lower risk for dementia, diabetes, and inflammatory conditions including inflammatory bowel disease.
Food Sources of Omega-3
Omega-3 fatty acids are in some common foods, but not in a very wide range of foods in high quantities. Long-chain omega-3 fats, or EPA and DHA, are in seafood, especially fatty fish such as salmon, tuna, mackerel, herring, trout, and sardines. Flaxseed and flaxseed oil, English walnuts, and soybean oil have short-chain omega-3 fats known as ALA.
Not everyone eats enough of these foods to get enough omega-3 fatty acids for optimal health. People who eat only a plant-based diet or who avoid seafood are unlikely to get significant amounts of the long-chain fatty acids EPA and DHA. Your body cannot make ALA on its own or much EPA or DHA from ALA, so you need to get them from food or supplements.
