Not quite a blog, not quite an article, but a combination of both.
A blarticle is a hybrid form of written content, designed to stick with you;
much like the small marine crustacean known commonly as a barnacle, which
attaches itself permanently to a variety of surfaces.
Have you ever wondered how algae makes omega-3 fatty acids? Why are some algal oils Non-GMO and others aren’t? In this blarticle, we dig into how algae are grown (or made in some cases),what algae are fed and why some omega-3 algae ingredients can make claims that others can’t.
There’s no arguing the health benefits of Omega-3 fatty acids. Scientists have proven Omega-3s can lower blood pressure, reduce risk of heart disease, and fight inflammation (to name a few). So why is it that, for many of us, our efforts to regularly consume Omega-3s are “rewarded” with bad breath? Let’s unpack the foul-smelling subject better known as burpback.
With any luck, everyone's getting along and settled into a temporary routine. But, just in case you're running out of ways to keep them occupied, we’ve developed an algae-themed activity book. We know it won't keep them busy for the entire self-isolation period, but at the very least, it’ll be fun and (mildly) educational.
In some ways, things feel so normal — we’re among the lucky who still have work to do, so we're doing it. There are still emails to answer, orders to fulfill, meetings to attend (virtually), and while doing so, we're all able to stay safe in our own homes, or in a facility where our health and safety is taken very seriously.
According to Google Trends, “what is the keto diet” was the most searched health question in 2017. Ketogenic diet refers to a high healthy fat, low carb diet. While the consumption of certain kinds of fats are recommended to be avoided, there are still some essential fatty acids required for our body.
Omega-3 is essential throughout life and may be particularly favourable for women’s endocrine-hormonal health, pregnancy health, mental health and of course heart health. Over the past two decades, omega-3 fatty acids have been one of the most researched nutrients. However, research of omega-3s specific to women’s physiology and whole-body health throughout their life is not abundant.
Nutrition plays a key role in brain development and mental health. The role of omega-3 fatty acids in physical health is well established, and their role in mental health is becoming increasingly evident.
The majority of nutrition experts, including myself, agree that eating a balanced diet is the best way to get your share of good food for health. As a health professional, I encourage my clients to focus on a global dietary pattern best suited to their needs, taking into account family history, medical conditions, lifestyle, and activity choices. It’s important to make food and nutrition solutions as simple as possible.
