Which kind of Omega 3s are best for YOUR nutritional history?
Most of us now know that omega 3 fatty acids are seriously lacking in the standard American diet. They’re very important for brain and nerve function, heart health, beautiful skin, strong immunity, hormone balance, anti-inflammatory effects, anti-cancer effects, and many other bodily functions. Indigenous people’s diets are rich in omega 3s because the fats, oils, nuts, seeds, and grains they eat are fresh, whole, and unrefined.
The refining process that ingredients in packaged, fast, and restaurant foods go through exposes the fats in these foods to heat, pressure, and oxygen, which causes them to change molecularly and sometimes oxidize, or “go rancid”, which eradicates the benefits of the omega 3s in these foods.
