Omega 3 essential fatty acids are also found in oily fish, but for those who follow a vegetarian or vegan diet, rapeseed is a valuable food source. And why are omega 3’s so valuable you ask? Well, firstly, they lower your cholesterol levels, which reduces your risk of cardiovascular disease (that’s heart disease and strokes). Plus they can improve the symptoms in a number of inflammatory conditions such as, asthma, Crohn’s disease, psoriasis and rheumatoid arthritis, not forgetting joint problems and maybe helping to stem the bone loss in ladies after the menopause. Oh, and if you have a ‘forgettery’ instead of a memory, they can help with brain function too!
Where to find them: Rapeseeds are found in our Omega Mix
