Omega-3 Fatty Acids, What to Know – And How They Can Help
When it comes to fat, there’s one type you don’t want to cut back on: omega-3 fatty acids. Our Solé SoupS studios have Omega-3 energy bites to keep you active and ready for any challenge the day might bring.
Omega-3 fatty acid is found in plant sources such as nuts and seeds. Not only does your body need these fatty acids to function, but they also deliver some big health benefits.
- Fish oil supplements containing Omega-3 can lower elevated triglyceride levels. Having high levels of this blood fat puts you at risk for heart disease and a stroke.
- Some researchers have found that cultures that eat foods with high levels of omega-3 have lower levels of depression
- Omega-3 also seems to boost the effectiveness of anti-inflammatory drugs. Although this has not proven, many studies suggest this is the case as it also lowers inflammation.
- A 2012 review of the scientific literature concluded that EPA and DHA, the types of omega-3s found in seafood and fish oil, may be modestly helpful in relieving symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis.
- Omega-3 fatty acids are a group of polyunsaturated fatty acids that are important for a number of functions in the body.
- The omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA are found in seafood, such as fatty fish (salmon, tuna, and trout) and shellfish (crab, mussels, and oysters). A different kind of Omega-3, called ALA, is found in other foods, including some vegetable oils (canola and soy). Omega-3’s are also available as dietary supplements; for example, fish oil supplements contain EPA and DHA, and flaxseed oil supplements contain ALA.
- The strongest evidence for a beneficial effect of omega-3 fats has to do with heart disease.

Of all the hotly debated foods in the world, the humble egg seems to find itself continually at the center of controversy. Conflicting reports debate whether the egg should be consumed regularly, or eaten in moderation. The debate is mostly centered on how much cholesterol an egg contains, all of which is found in the yolk. The white part of the egg, however, is another matter.
