Benefits of Omega-3

Since I found out I was pregnant I did all the research and reading I could to get all the information on the best nutrition I could take for

the best development of my baby.

One of the most important additions to my diet was omega-3 fatty acids so I started supplementing from the second trimester with OmegaBrite

Getting enough omega-3s during pregnancy has been associated with numerous benefits for the child, including:

• Higher intelligence

• Better communication and social skills

• Less behavioral problems

• Decreased risk of developmental delay

• Decreased risk of ADHD, autism and cerebral palsy

I also have to say that I not only rely on supplements to get my omega-3. As a qualified nutrition coach, I also know the importance of

making sure I include high omega-3 fatty acids in my diet.

Here are a few foods that are incredibly good for adding those extra omega-3 fatty acids into your diet as well as supplementing:

⁃ salmon

⁃ Flaxseed

⁃ Chia seed

⁃ Kale, spinach

⁃ Walnuts

⁃ Sardines

⁃ Eggs

⁃ Peanut butter

Reasons why is so important to make sure you get enough omega-3:

Depression & Anxiety

Omega-3 fatty acids are incredibly important for your body and brain health.

There are three types of omega-3 fatty acids: ALA, EPA and DHA. Of the three, EPA appears to be the best at fighting depression and anxiety

Inflammation & Asthma

Omega-3 fatty acids can reduce the production of molecules and substances linked to inflammation.

As you might know if you have followed me for a while, I suffer with asthma and as asthma is an inflammation on the lungs to me it is very important to consume omega-3 to help reduce the symptoms of my asthma.

Bone & Jointhealth

Studies indicate that omega-3s can improve bone strength by increasing the amount of calcium in bones. This should lead to a reduced risk of

osteoporosis.

Menstrualpain

Menstrual pain occurs in the lower abdomen and pelvis, and often radiates to the lower back and thighs.

It can result in significant negative effects on a person’s quality of life.

However, studies have repeatedly shown that women who consume the most omega-3s have milder menstrual pain

Improvesleep

Low levels of omega-3 fatty acids are associated with sleep problems in children and obstructive sleep apnea in adults

Low levels of DHA have also been linked to lower levels of the hormone melatonin, which helps you fall asleep.

Studies in both children and adults have shown that supplementing with omega-3 increases the length and quality of sleep

Foryourskin

Omega-3 also benefits your skin in several ways:

• Controlling oil production in skin.

• Maintaining hydration of the skin.

• Preventing hyperkeratinization of hair follicles (the little red

bumps often seen on upper arms).

• Preventing premature ageing of the skin.

• Preventing acne
