Health Challenge Day 21: Omega 3 Rich Foods

Platinum Health Challenge Day 21: Eat foods rich Omega 3 fatty acids.

Tomorrow is the final day of our Platinum Health Challenge! This means it is the last day for our week 3 raffle, a massage basket from Altos Mobile Massage and the last challenge for the Grand Prize Raffle, a gift card to ButcherBox! So what is the challenge? Day 21 is Eat foods rich Omega 3 fatty acids

Omega 3's are anti-inflammatory to our bodies and are the required building blocks for a healthy brain and nervous system. The normal ratio ratio of Omega 3 to Omega 6 (which is pro-inflammatory) should be 1:2. The average American has a ratio of 1:24!!!! No wonder everyone has aches and pains all over and can't think straight, we’re inflamed because of our food. 

So what can we do about it? In order to get the recommended dosage, you need to be eating fatty fish like wild salmon or mackerel everyday. And yes, wild caught really matters. Other foods with Omega3s include chia seeds, walnuts, and avocados, but we have to eat a lot of them. No wonder we can't get our ratio into proper proportion. But all hope isn’t lost, this is where supplementation comes in. 

For optimal health we need to supplement our Omega 3’s. Check out our recommended Omega 3 supplement below. It is of the highest quality, sourced from the clean waters of Norway, is non-GMO, and comes in soft gels or liquid lemon form. If you are a vegetarian, we have options for you also.
