Don’t like Fish?

December 4, 2011 0 Comments

It’s a top source of Omega -3 fatty acids, which studies show can reduce blood pressure and the risk of heart attack- but what if you don’t like the flavour of fish?

A study from England suggests that you may get nearly as much benefit from plant foods that contain alpha-linolenic acid, a substance that your body converts into omega-3. Blood tests on women who eat fish and those who don’t suggest that fish-avoiders become more efficient at converting alpha-linolenic acids into omega-3, boasting an omega-3 count only 10% lowers than fish-eaters. The best sources of this acid? Canola and soybean oils, walnuts, tofu and flax seed.
