Omega 3 in the diet

The Omega 3 is a polyunsaturated or fat better, an essential fatty acid that cannot be produced by our body, thus needing to be acquired from food. This fatty acid, when ingested, has many benefits and is important for maintaining good health.

The benefits of omega 3 involve neutralization of stress, improved concentration, reflexes and memory; benefits the heart, circulatory system and prevention of diseases, including autoimmune disease (in which there is an aggression against the body's normal elements of the body itself). It is an anti -inflammatory, reduces blood pressure, the rate of triglycerides in the blood, prevents diabetes, arthritis and cancer, in addition to benefiting the mood, the body's defense and learning. Furthermore, the osteoporosis can be barred by the oil, creating balance. Provide energy, participate in the formation of hormones, keeps skin soft and lubricated, carries vitamins and aids in the functioning of cells.

Foods rich in omega 3 foods are seafood, such as shrimp, clams, lobster, and fish such as mackerel, trout, herring, tuna, cod, sardines and salmon. Flaxseed, almonds, walnuts and chestnuts, and oils such as olive oil and canola oil, also have this fat, among other foods.

So it is important to minimize the consumption of red meat, cream and butter, because they are foods high in saturated fats. Passing ingests greater amounts of fish, olive oil, sesame and flaxseed oil is quite beneficial. And when they feed on fish that are baked or boiled, never fried, because this process destroys the omega 3.
