Omega-3 May Lower Risk of Heart Disease & Dementia

New research shows that Omega-3 fatty acids may lower levels of Homocysteine, an amino acid link to increased risks of Heart Disease and Dementia. Although more research needs to be done for this new development, Omega- 3 has more benefits than just for heart health. The benefits include reduced risk of certain cancers, better development of baby during pregnancy, joint health, and improvement of mood.

To ensure you are getting your Omega-3's, be sure to take a supplement but do not rely on the supplement alone. Remember that, by definition, supplement means: something added to complete a thing, supply a deficiency, or reinforce or extend a whole. In other words, be sure to get most of your Omega-3's from the food you consume and "back it up" by taking a supplement. The following is a list of some foods that contain this multi-benefit oil, according to NutritionData.
