Having come from a fishing and coastal background, I grew up on a diet high in Omega 3. I was told as a child that eating fish makes you clever and that’s exactly what science shows.

However, it’s not just the incredible impact on the brain that I find fascinating about this substance. Recent studies are now showing that there are other, much less known benefits to including Omega 3 in our everyday diets, which I will be covering in a lot more detail over the following weeks, such as:

  1. ‘Turning off our hunger’ (Combatting obesity).
  2. It’s relation to fighting
    • Various Cancers
    • Diabetes
    • Depression & Bipolar
    • Dementia, Alzheimer’s & ADHD

    • Menstrual Pain
    • Asthma
    • Inflammation
    • Arthritis
    • Osteoporosis
    • Autoimmune Disease
    • Heart Disease
    • High Blood Pressure
    • Bad Cholestrol
    • Gut Issues; Gluten Sensitivity.
  3. How Omega-3 compliments saturated fat
  4. How it can enhance beauty, strengthening hair, skin and nails.

In order to properly explain what Omega-3 is, I turn to Dr Mark Hyman and his revolutionary book ‘Eat Fat, Get Thin’. He says ‘Omega-3 fats one type of poly unsaturated fat (PUFA) make up much of our cell membranes and regulate insulin function, inflammation and even neuro-transmitters which is why they are critical for preventing and treating diabetes, depression, arthritis and autoimmune disease.’

I will also be including the various sources of Omega-3 as well as some recipes to make it easier than ever to introduce it to your daily life!
