Omega fatty acids are essential because your body can’t make them itself. However, these nutrients are essential to many of our bodily functions, such as heart and blood pressure functions. They also play a vital role in supporting a healthy brain and nerve cells, as the nervous system is made up mostly of fats.
Foods rich in omega-3 include fish, seafood and leafy greens. According to Psychology Today (2003), countries that eat a diet rich in omega three oils (such as those in the Mediterranean) “have lower rates of depression”. Symptoms of omega 3 deficiency include dry skin, dull hair and insomnia.
If you notice these symptoms and struggle to increase your intake of foods rich in omega-3 oils, it could be great for both your mental and physical health to include our Omega 3 6 9 tablet into your diet. Myvitamins Omega 3 6 9, one of our ‘Vitamins for Happiness’ is a balance of essential fatty acids, DHA and EPA.
