What are Plant Based Omega Oils?

Plant based omega oils are the body’s main source of one of the two essential fatty acids, known as ALA (alpha-linolenic acid). This Omega-3 oil is considered an essential fatty acid as it is required for a variety of biological functions, but also because it can only be obtained through diet. The most common source of plant based omegas is from seeds and nuts like flax, chia and walnuts, but these aren’t common ingredients in a lot of diets, so supplementing your diet can help you meet your requirements. ALA can also have a positive effect on your hearts health, by strengthening it and may help you maintain a strong and consistent heartbeat. It may also play a part in reducing the levels of bad cholesterol in the blood, further benefiting the heart. Omega- 6 comes from plant sources like flax, and can help maintain healthy skin and eyes, as well as support immune health. Another plant based omega oil is Omega-7, most commonly found in sea buckthorn. This omega oil can offer a number of health benefits, such as help with weight loss and the intake of acidic foods. It can help relieve some stomach pains.
