Fantastic Fat (yes, that’s what we said)

The word fat has gotten a bad rap over the years.  The negative connotations of the word are numerous and people feel as though it is something to be avoided at all costs when practicing a healthy lifestyle.  There is one type of fat however; that it is not just good for you, but your body and brain actually needs it to function properly.  A recent medical journal states that Omega-3 fatty acids are critical for both structure and function of the brain. *

The reason this particular form of fatty acid is so healthy, is that the cell membranes in the brain are made almost entirely of fats including Omega-3 fatty acids.  Adding these fatty acids to your diet supports these cell membranes and enhances their performance.  Increase of Omega-3 fatty acids in diet has shown to help with depression, anger and aggression, ADHD, and even Alzheimer’s.

Not only does Omega-3 do the brain good, it can also help to lower triglycerides and unhealthy fats in the blood stream, and ease the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis.  All of these great benefits make a compelling case that there are some positive things to be said for certain kinds of fat.
