Omega 3 fatty acids, sometimes referred to as “good fats,” are critical components in our diets, since the body does not manufacture these essential fatty acids on its own. These polyunsaturated fats are necessary for achieving and maintaining optimal health.
Omega 3 consumption boosts the level of High Density Lipoprotein or HDL (also known as the “good cholesterol”) in the body, which is crucial for obtaining healthy cholesterol levels, and essential for brain and heart health. Studies have shown that diets rich in Omega 3 fatty acids not only aid in maintaining healthy cardiovascular, nervous and immune systems, they have also been known to assist with a number of health conditions, including dry skin, diabetes, obesity, inflammation, joint pain and depression.
Omega 3s are naturally present in a variety of nuts, including almonds, brazil nuts, cashews, pistachios, pecans and hazelnuts, as well as some seeds, such as sesame, sunflower, pumpkin and hemp seeds. Rejuvenative Foods offers an assortment of delicious raw organic nut and seed butters, made from these Omega 3 rich sources.
