Omega 3 Fatty Acids For Vegetarians and Vegans. An Essential Video
Find out more about omega 3 for vegetarians and vegans from this video
We have spoken before about the best way for vegetarians and vegans to get their Omega 3 essential fatty acids.
However to recap briefly, the 2 most important Omega 3 essential fatty acids are DHA and EPA which are found in fish, and in small amounts in some other non-vegetarian or vegan food sources like beef and eggs.
However the Omega 3 fat found in plants is called ALA, and this is only beneficial in so far as it can be converted into DHA and EPA in the body, and this conversion is generally considered to be very poor.
And for this reason people who do not eat fish have some problems maintaining an adequate supply of the Omega3 fats through their diet.
Today we bring you a video by Joseph Hibbeln, MD about Omega 3 for vegetarians and vegans, that will give you some more specific advice.
Here’s his video, essential viewing for any vegetarian or vegan interested in learning more about how they can go about maintaining their intake of the omega 3 fatty acids.
