Why do I need an Omega-3 supplement?
The human brain weighs around three pounds. And more than half of that is fat.
These fats are called essential fatty acids, or EFAs. They make up the structure of your brain cell membranes.
Though your brain is made of these important fatty acids…
...your body isn’t good at making EFAs.
So we need to get EFAs in our diet.
There are two families of essential fatty acids or EFAs: Omega-3 and Omega-6.
And getting the amount of each is a delicate balancing act.
However, it’s harder for us to get omega-3 in our diet because it primarily comes from seafood and fatty fish like salmon and mackerel, plus some plant-based oils and algae.
And all the omega-6 found in standard diets made of refined vegetable oils, processed foods and meat upsets this balance in a not-so-good way.
