Can walnuts give us proper omega 3 fatty acid, which our body needs or we have to eat fish to get proper omega3?
- By Team TDO
The name omega-3 covers a range of fatty acids, three of which are particularly important for our health: eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)—both found in oily fish—and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), found in plant sources. These fatty acids form part of the membrane around every cell in our bodies. They control what substances pass in and out of the cells, as well as how cells communicate with each other. Cells with high levels of omega-3s in their membranes are more fluid and work more effectively. Get lots of omega-3 in your diet and you~ll be a well-oiled machine. Walnut is a healthy option but Fish oil is a better option.
