We all need more Omega-3 fats in our diet. The benefits of Omega-3 fatty acids are indisputable. From their heart-healthy benefits, to their support of a healthy immune system, pain-free joints, brain and nerve health, to their anti-inflammatory properties, the research proves that we can all benefit from consuming foods rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. Unfortunately, the best natural dietary sources of Omega-3s - cold water fish - are frequently contaminated with mercury and pesticide residues, making it very difficult to safely achieve recommended levels. Therefore, supplementing your diet with highly refined, pharmaceutical-grade fish oils has proven the best way to get your Omega-3s.
