Omega-3 is an Essential Fatty Acid and it’s essential because the body can’t make it, so it needs to be consumed in our diet. Normally the drug industry and the supplement industry are like oil and water, but the research behind the benefits of Omega-3 is so overwhelming, they actually made an Omega-3 drug called Lovaza! Sales from that drug are over a Billion dollars a year... yep, I said the “B” word.
This email will be a little different. Since Omega-3 fats have so many benefits, I’ll touch on what they do, and then just give you a big list of benefits with a load of resources.
Omega-3 fats are found in the cell membranes (housing) of every cell in your body. Deficiencies will result in the cells becoming less flexible (compromising cell functioning and overall health) and less permeable (impacting release of waste products).
