Signs your body is missing healthy fats and how Omega 3 fatty-acids can help
- Dry flaky skin - Your skin can be the canary in the coal mine. If your skin is no longer soft and supple despite drinking plenty of water, you may not be consuming enough fat. Fat plays an important role in your skin. Omega 3s and 6s support your skin cell membranes. Surface moisturizing can help but creating the best cells will help the prevent the problem in the first place.
- Difficulty focusing - Your brain is mostly made up of fat. Omega 3s can help maintain optimal brain health. Healthy fats line nerve fibres - sort of lubricating the pathways to allow messages to move faster. Including omega 3s can increase concentration and reduce mental fatigue.
- Mood swings - Omega 3s support serotonin production, which is one of the main hormones that make us “feel good.” If you are feeling stressed, our bodies crave carbs to promote serotonin. Supplementing with an Omega 3 can help level the playing field and help your body respond to stress with fewer hormonal fluctuations.
- Compromised immune system - It is well known that Omega 3s serve an anti-inflammatory function, which can reduce immune system flares but studies also show that Omega 3s help support white blood cells. This support improves and helps create a more efficient immune system response.
