Omega 3 Fatty Acids

Omega 3 fatty acids are found in foods such as fish, algae, flax seeds, chia seeds, hemp seeds and walnuts.

These are split into 3 groups:

  1. Alpha- Linoleic acid (ALA) flax, hemp, chia, walnuts
  2. Eicosapentaenoic (EPA) fish oil
  3. Docosahexaeonic (DHA) fish oil or algae

The body cannot make the above on its own, meaning we require a steady intake from these foods on a daily basis.

By consuming a balanced amount from each of the three groups, the body’s tissues are saturated, creating an anti-inflammatory response at the cellular level. It’s crucial for your body to be able to recover at its best by consuming foods that have strong anti-inflammatory properties.
