Introduction to Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Omega-3 fatty acids help support your heart health while reducing your blood pressure and inflammation. Plant-Based foods are rich in 1 of the 3 types of Omega-3 fatty acids, ALA (alpha-linolenic acid). It’s important to make sure that you’re getting all three types of Omega-3 fatty acids. If you’re on a Plant-Based diet, I recommend going the easy route to be safe and taking a supplement.
Top Recommended Omega Supplements
I highly recommend Mary Ruths Organic Omega Gummies (Search Omega 3-6-7-9 Gummies). These gummies have all 3 types of Omega-3 fatty acids plus Omega-6, 9, and 7. They’re also vegan and they don’t taste like fish because they aren’t made with fish. In one bottle you have three flavors: Peach, Mango, and Apricot! They’re also gluten-free which is a huge plus. 🙂
