Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Omega-3 FATTY ACIDS:  there are 2 types of these.  EPA and DHA.  EPA is good for anti-inflammatory benefits.  DHA helps improve brain function.  Together they also work to reduce triglyceride levels and balance hormones.

I love getting these benefits from fish like Salmon.  So here I am, catching myself some dinner.  I can bounce back faster and recover quicker keeping muscle soreness to a minimum.....doing it the all natural way.

So HOW MUCH:  you can get about 1,000mg from 2 to 3.5 oz of wild salmon.  For supplements, up to 3,000mg a day is considered safe by the FDA.  Don't love fish?  Get your Omega 3s from avocado, flaxseed, chia seed, egg yolks and nuts!   #nowyouknow
