What Are Omega-3's? And Why You Should Supplement:
Omega-3’s are a group of fatty acids that only come from animal and vegetable fats. These are the “good” fats that are essential for cellular health, managing inflammation, etc.
The two most important, and well-known Omega-3’s are EPA and DHA.
Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA): This acid prevents blood clots, and reduces triglyceride levels in the blood – so it’s essential for maintaining optimal blood sugar levels.
Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA): Like EPA, this is also essential to brain and heart health – even during fetal development. It’s also great for reducing inflammation and supporting muscle recovery after exercise.
Many of us aren’t getting enough Omega-3’s in our diets, so supplementing is essential for maintaining your health. Here are all the ways Omega-3’s are essential to maintaining optimal wellness:
SIGNS OF OMEGA-3 DEFICIENCIES
JOINT PAIN + STIFFNESS
If your Omega-3 levels are low, you will experience an increase in inflammation in your nerves and joints. Omega-3’s can also help increase blood flow throughout the body during exercise, which can help reduce joint pain and swelling.
Studies indicate that people who regularly consume omega-3’s or supplement are less likely to be depressed. In these studies, EPA appears to be the best fatty acid for fighting depression, lethargy, and anxiety.
Low levels of Omega-3’s are linked to sleep problems in both children and also linked to sleep apnea in adults. Low levels of DHA are associated with lower levels of melatonin, which helps you fall asleep.
Omega-3’s are critical for brain health. Studies have shown that low levels of DHA are linked to the onset and development of memory disorders. Omega-2’s also play a role in reducing brain inflammation + oxidative stress.

THE BENEFITS OF OMEGA-3 SUPPLEMENTATION
AT WELL THEORY, OUR GOAL IS TO HELP YOU CURATE A LIFE LIVED WELL – IN A LASTING, HOLISTIC WAY.
1. Decreased Chronic Inflammation
Studies have found that Omega-3 fatty acids have anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory properties. This means that supplementing with these fatty acids can help reduce symptoms of autoimmune and inflammatory diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease, migraine headaches, and more.
3. Improved Eye Health
DHA, a type of omega-3 fatty acids, is an essential component of the retina of your eye. If you don’t get enough DHA in your diet, you may experience eye problems. Additionally, getting enough omega-3’s is linked to a reduced risk of age-related macular degeneration (the part of the retina responsible for clear vision.)
4. Reduces Symptoms Of Metabolic Syndrome
“Metabolic syndrome” includes central obesity, or excess fat around the midsection, high blood pressure, insulin resistance, and more. It increases your risk of other diseases, such as diabetes and heart disease. Omega-3 supplementation can improve insulin resistance, reduce inflammation, and reduce heart disease risk.
5. Fight Age-Related Mental Decline
Several studies have linked Omega-3 supplementation to decreased age-related mental decline and a reduced risk of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
