Nutrition Tip of the Day!

Be sure to include various sources of Omega-3 fatty acids in your diet to improve blood cholesterol levels, decrease inflammation, and reduce your risk of heart disease.

A recent systematic review in the British Journal of Nutrition reviewed the benefits and risks of Omega-3 derived from algal, fish oil, plant, enriched dairy products, animal-derived food, krill oil, and seal oil. They found that no matter the source of Omega-3 fatty acids, the health benefits are similar with no adverse effects.
