All the cells in our body love alpha-linolenic acid, ALA an indispensable, completely essential omega-3, because the human body cannot manufacture it. Which means that when we eat alpha-linolenic acid, it is immediately used and blood levels go to help our arteries, heart and brain.
Therefore, it must be provided by our diet or by adequate supplementation. If you buy omega-3 supplements, read the labels carefully. There are currently many abuses in the use of omega-3 claims. I leave to each reader of this text the choice to understand a little the term omega-3 of a product in relation to its targets: heart, arteries, brain.
Three omega-3s are particularly important: alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), totally essential because the human body cannot manufacture it; eicosapentaenoic (EPA) and docosahexaenoic (DHA) acids which can be synthesized by our body in limited quantities and which it is therefore desirable to find directly in food or in supplementation.
Dietary intake of the precursor of the omega-3 family, alpha-linolenic acid, is often insufficient for some people and always insufficient for others, depending on whether the diet is adequate or not.
We must be careful to bring (to us and our loved ones) the necessary quantities of alpha-linolenic acid ALA in order to protect our heart and our arteries and know that we also contribute to helping our brain.
Tri-Cephal helps us because it contains (in addition to 400 mg of EPA and 200 mg DHA) eight percent ALA alpha-linolenic acid in long chain omega-3 fatty acids. An essential plus for an essential fatty acid (ALA).
