Not all fats are bad fats!

In the past few decades, fats have received a lot of negative publicity. However, in reality, some fats are necessary and essential to your diet. The GOOD fats like Omega-3 fatty acids! Omega-3s cannot be produced in your body like other fats; instead, they must be consumed. These nutrients that must be eaten are called essential nutrients.

Omega-3 fats can improve the cardiovascular health by reducing LDLs (the bad cholesterol), increasing the HDLs (the good cholesterol) and lowering triglyceride levels. HDLs are responsible for cleaning out the bad cholesterol from our arteries and removing plaque. Through this mechanism, Omega-3s have been shown to reduce cardiovascular disease and improve heart health.

Ever heard of vitamin A, D, E and K? You may take supplements each day to make sure you are consuming adequate amounts of each. What you didn’t know was that these household vitamins need fats to be digested and to circulate around the body. Without fats, you can become deficient in these fat-soluble vitamins even if you are taking daily supplements.

These are only two of the many benefits that Omega-3 fats can provide. Omega-3s have also been linked to several studies lowering depression, dementia and joint paint!
