Omega 3 Oil-
Omega 3 is the oil usually associated with cold water fish and heart health. However, if you don’t like fish or are worried about pollutants, the good news is you can get it from plants too. Chia seeds are actually the highest plant source of omega 3s, as well as the easiest because they don’t taste like anything.
Unlike sesame or poppy, you can sprinkle chia onto any food you already like to eat, get your omega-3 oil, and not change the flavor at all. This is especially important, as you should try to get some omega 3 oil every day, and using chia helps ensure you won’t be bored or quit… because it’s too easy to use on such a variety of foods. Flax seeds & walnuts are also great sources of omega-3s, but you’ll have to like their flavor.
What does omega 3 do for you?
ALA, the simplest of the omega 3s (which your body cannot produce, so you must consume it) has been studied to reduce skin redness & help it retain moisture which, as you know, helps erase fine lines. This oil is important for cell membranes, which are what the cell uses to hold in the proper amount of water. Healthy membranes equal healthy moisture levels in your cells. You’ve seen all the moisturizer commercials, now you can moisten your skin from within.
