Are you concerned about your heart health? Eating the right amount of omega-3 can help.
Omega-3 fats are considered essential fats because they’re necessary for human health but the body cannot make them - you have to get them through food. Omega-3 fats are healthy fats that can help protect your heart. Scientific research supports the importance of omega-3 fats, from both plant and marine sources, in protecting heart health.
Omega-3 fats not only protect your heart but they are also important for good vision, brain function and normal growth and development. Health experts recognize that omega-3 fats play a vital role in preventing chronic diseases such as cancer, arthritis and heart disease. Guidelines now recommend that people protect their hearts by adding more omega-3 fats to their diets.6
Doctors agree! Omega-3 fats are an important part of a heart healthy diet and most Canadians could benefit from more omega-3 fats in their diets.
