Omega 3 fatty acids are key to the body in many ways. Perhaps most notably the EPA and DHA comprising omega 3 fatty acids delivers anti- inflammatory properties i.e. they reduce inflammation in arteries and joints, potentially reducing risk of inflammatory diseases such as arthritis, asthma and cardiovascular disease. Did you know, Omega 3 fatty acids cannot be made in the body meaning you can only get them through your diet. Failure to consume them via nutrition may expose you to certain chronic conditions such as arthritis, asthma and heart disease.
