Nothing Fishy About

Health Benefits

Of Plant-Based

Omega-3 Fatty Acids ~

Increasing the amount of Omega-3s in your diet, whether from fish or flax, will likely decrease your risk of getting heart disease.

According to researchers from Penn State University, substantial evidence exists supporting the heart-health benefits of marine-derived Omega-3 Fatty Acids Eicosapentaenoic Acid and Docosahexaenoic Acid (EPA and DHA). But with regard to plant-based Omega-3 Fatty Acid - Alpha-linolenic Acid (ALA) - there is much less evidence demonstrating its beneficial effects. EPA and DHA can be found in seafood and fish oil and often consumed as dietary supplements. ALA is found in Flaxseed (and its oil, vegetable oils and some nuts) and is now available in supplements, whereas EPA and DHA have been available for much longer. Other sources of ALA, EPA and DHA are fortified foods, such as orange juice, eggs, peanut butter, margarine and bread, among others, with most relatively low in Omega-3s. Omega-3 Fatty Acids are considered essential for human health, but the body does not produce them; they must be consumed in order to maintain appropriate levels. In reviewing existing science on the subject, the researchers concluded that ALA is likely just as effective in combating cardiovascular disease as EPA and DHA have proven to be. The scientists stress that heart disease is the leading cause of death in the country; thus, learning what we can do to prevent it is important and relevant for everybody. The findings, published in the journal Advances in Nutrition, stated that "Based on the current evidence, ALA decreases CVD risk.” Furthermore, the researchers believe that dietary recommendations should be amended to increase the amount of ALA consumed, adding that randomized controlled clinical trials need to be conducted to determine the proper amount to be recommended.

HEALTH TIPS ~

HEALTHY EATING

STARTS AT HOME ~

Here’s how you can help your overweight child: Set a Good Example: Make healthy food choices for yourself. Eat at Home - as a family (children eat nearly twice as many calories in restaurants as they would at home). Stay Calm: Make mealtime pleasant, not combative. Serve Healthy Snacks - that are low in fats and calories, as well as healthy regular meals. Get the Kids Involved - in meal planning and preparation. Keep Active: Make fitness a family affair. Contrary to popular belief, children do not naturally outgrow baby fat.

RECIPE FOR SAFE COOKING

DURING THE BUSY

HOLIDAY SEASON ~

Stay in the kitchen, and keep an eye on the stove/oven. Keep the oven door closed (children may climb on it and tip stove). Wear short or close fitting sleeves (loose clothing can catch fire). Watch children closely (when children are old enough, teach them to cook safely). Clean cooking surfaces to prevent food and grease buildup. Keep curtains, towels and potholders away from hot surfaces. Turn pot handles inward to prevent food spills and burns. Store solvents and flammables away from heat sources (never keep gasoline in the house). Watch children closely (when children are old enough, teach them to cook safely).

TRYING

To Lose Weight?

Pressures to eat come at us from all directions, and when the source is a well-meaning relative or friend, they can be harder to resist. Your best bet is saying “No, thank you,” politely, but firmly, without apologies. If you sound uncertain, your host or friend will be more tempted to push. If you are truly committed to a weight loss regimen that includes a sensible diet and some exercise, check out the natural herbal therapy with Garcinia. Everybody can use some extra help sometimes.
