Omega 3’s – why all the fuss?
Omega 3 is an essential fatty acid required for the body’s optimum performanceOmega 3 must be obtained from our diet i.e. it’s not manufactured from other nutrientsOur ancestors consumed ample Omega 3 from a diet rich in wild grass fed animals and wild cold water fishToday our diet has become rich in grains, carbohydrates which is leading to significant deficiencies in Omega 3Our brain is 60% fat and depends on getting high quality essential fatty acids to function. Research is linking insufficient Omega 3 intake to depression, anxiety and mental health disorders such as bipolar and schizophreniaConsumers can enjoy eating the fat from grass fed animals as it is not saturated fat and is actually good for you
