Fat = bad, right? WRONG! There are many kinds of fats, and not all of them are bad. Omega-3 fatty acids, for example, are not only healthy to eat, but they are also vital to healthy cell function.

“Essential fatty acids” like omega-3s are found in all the cell membranes in your body, and they play a major role in how well your cell membranes work. The type of fat you consume determines the type of fat in your cell membranes. If you consume too much of the wrong kinds of fat (like saturated fat, cholesterol or trans fatty acids), your cell membranes will not work like they should.

Your body does not manufacture its own essential fatty acids, so you must ingest them. Foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids include flax seed, chia seeds, wild-caught salmon, sardines, anchovies, mackerel and tuna.  But what if you don’t care for seeds or seafood? You can get the proper amount of omega-3 fatty acids by taking a supplement like CarePro Advance Omega, a fish oil supplement offered by CarePro Advance Health. If you consume a healthy amount of essential fatty acids (1500 – 2000mg), your cells will work better, and you will be healthier.

Omega-3 fatty acids have many other health benefits, like improving your hormone function and reducing inflammation. Contact your CarePro pharmacist for more information about how omega-3 fatty acids can help you live a healthier life.
