Omega-3 fatty acids are one fat you don’t want to cut back on! Our bodies need Omega-3 fatty acids in order to perform normal functions like control blood clotting and build cell membranes in the brain. Benefits include heart health, regulation of cholesterol triglyceride levels, and protection against many diseases. Since our bodies can’t make these fatty acids on their own, we need to get them through food and supplements. Try this simple – yet delicious – berry smoothie with flaxseeds to get some more of these good fats into your diet!
