Trout Are a Valuable Source of Omega-3 Fatty Acids
What makes omega-3 fats special? They are an integral part of cell membranes throughout the body and affect the function of the cell receptors in these membranes. They provide the starting point for making hormones that regulate blood clotting, contraction and relaxation of artery walls, and inflammation. Omega-3 fatty acids are key to having a healthy heart. Having a healthy heart is a combination of several things including eating correctly, working out, and drinking water. Omega-3 fatty acids are known to help with your brain, and memory, reducing inflammation, and reducing your chances of heart disease.
