Our omega-3 energy bites are more than just a tasty treat. Check out all the positives that come from including them in your diet.
Omega-3 fatty acids are incredibly important and they have many powerful health benefits for your body and brain. In fact, few nutrients have been studied as thoroughly as omega-3 fatty acids. One of the many benefits of a diet including omega-3 fatty acids is a decrease in depression and anxiety. Many people who consume omega-3s see lower levels of both depression and anxiety.
ALA, EPA, and DHA are the 3 types of omega-3 fatty acids. Of the 3, EPA is the strongest in fighting depression. Interestingly, getting enough omega-3 is linked to a reduced risk of macular degeneration, one of the world’s leading causes of permanent eye damage and blindness. DHA, another type of omega-3, is a major structural component of the retina of your eye. Without enough DHA, your vision could be negatively affected.
Omega-3 fatty acids also benefit brain health during pregnancy and early life. DHA accounts for 40% of the polyunsaturated fatty acids in your brain and 60% in the retina of your eye. Getting the appropriate amount of omega-3s during pregnancy can lead to higher intelligence, better communication and social skills, fewer behavioral problems, and even a decreased risk of developmental delay.
It’s always important to keep your heart healthy, and our Omega-3 energy bites can help you out. Heart attacks and strokes are the world’s leading causes of death, so don’t forget to maintain your health especially when it comes to your cardiovascular system. Omega-3s reduce the production of some substances released during your body’s inflammatory response. While omega-3s improve numerous heart disease risk factors, omega-3 supplements do not seem to reduce your risk of heart attacks or strokes.
Inflammation is a natural response to infections and damage in your body. Therefore, it is vital for your health. Notably, omega-3 fatty acids can reduce the production of molecules and substances linked to inflammation, such as inflammatory eicosanoids and cytokines.
