Omega 3 – Straight From the Sea!
Omega 3 fatty acids are an essential part of a healthy diet. A deliciously convenient way to reap the benefits of these nutrients is by consuming wild caught seafood. Ocean-derived sources of Omega 3 — which include EPA and DHA — are abundantly found in fish such as tuna, salmon and sardines. Essential for building cells, these long-chain Omega 3 nutrients remain working inside of cells for a long time as they are redistributed throughout the body. DHA Omega 3 is especially vital, as it is important for proper brain function.
Plant-based sources of Omega 3 — found in flax, walnuts, some leafy greens – provide ALA, another type of Omega 3, which is not interchangeable with nor converted by the body to DHA and EPA. ALA is a short-chain Omega 3 and a short-term source of energy, rather than being a longer-term structural element necessary to build and maintain the body’s cell structure.
With DHA and EPA necessary for optimal health, Wild Planet offers a wide array of wild caught seafood choices rich in these nutrients that will satisfy any palate. In fact, in the case of Wild Planet albacore tuna there aren’t many foods on the planet that match the DHA content per serving. That is why our albacore tuna has been called a “foodaceutical” by many nutritionists.
It’s easy to build these tasty fish into any meal or snack and obtain the long-term cell-building benefits of EPA & DHA Omega 3 nutrients. Whether you choose tuna, salmon, anchovies or sardines, Wild Planet delivers pure, minimally processed Omega 3 – straight from the sea!
