What does that mean?

Reading food labels, magazines or just hear a new "food word" on TV and your not sure what it is? How about this one..."Omega-3s!"

I'm here to help...

Omega-3s are an essential fatty acid component that
your body cannot produce. They play a vital role in disease
prevention by encouraging the production of body
chemicals that help control inflammation. The
recommendation for getting your omega-3s is two
servings (3 - 4 ounces per serving) of fish a week (~ 1.5
ounces of fish contains 1 gram of omega-3s). Alternatively,
~1 ounce (or one handful) of walnuts has about 2.5 grams
of omega-3s; that’s the equivalent of ~3.5 ounces of
salmon.

Have any more brain busters?
