Seeds are often talked about as being a source of plant based omega 3s fatty acids.
There are three different types of omega 3s, alpha linolenic acid (ALA) that can be found in flax and chia seeds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, certain vegetable oils and some leafy greens, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) found in animal sources such as krill and fish. EPA and DHA are the active forms that have the anti inflammatory and cardio protective functions and are essential for brain and nervous system health. Omega 3s have also been linked to joint and bone health and preservation and to blood pressure management. ALA can be converted in EPA and DHA but the conversion is slow and can be not completely efficient in some people. So even though I always suggest to focus on the diet first, taking an algae omega 3s supplement could be beneficial. Nutrients first and plant medicine daily is what I always recommend but supplements can have their place if necessary and suggested by a professional because ultimately your health and both mental and physical wellbeing come first!😊Happy Tuesday!💚
