O, the many redeeming benefits of adequate dietary Omega-3!
Most studies are on fish sources, but you can glean from nutrition science that ALA (plant omega3) is heart healthy, & as an Essential omega3, our brain can use it in ways to facilitate things omega-6 won't.
"Advanced chain" omega-6 GLA: contributes to skin & nails vibrancy, an asset lowering arthritis joint inflammation in similar fashion that EPA Omega3 will!
SDA Omega-3 for metabolic assistence, Hempseed has a small amount, AHI FLOWER- newly discovered concentrated source!
MCT coconut + Mono-unsaturated avocado & olive = great for energy + satiety.
FOR SURE: Partially Hydrogenated oils reverses BENEFITS!
Mercury in Fish can also CANCEL BENEFITS!
Heat degrades Omega-3 quality. Avoiding excess Omega-6 & Saturated fats while catching up on CLEAN Omega-3s comes with NOTICEABLE benefits you will FEEL. Enjoy a FABulous journey to Fatty Acid Balance!
Don't just work in Omega-3, avoid toxins that tank attention, IQ, & memory.

Omega−3 fatty acid and ADHD: Blood level analysis and meta-analytic extension of supplementation trials
Ongoing public and scholarly interest in the relevance of omega−3 fatty acid supplementation for ADHD mandates further study. Here, we followed up recent meta-analyses of supplementation trials with (a) a first meta-analysis of blood levels and (b) a refined and updated meta-analysis of intervention trials with a larger pool of studies and participants than previously examined. Study 1 found that children with ADHD, in fact, do exhibit lower blood levels of omega−3 fatty acids.

Supplementation with Omega-3 Fatty Acids in Psychiatric Disorders: A Review of Literature Data
A new application for omega-3 fatty acids has recently emerged, concerning the treatment of several mental disorders. This indication is supported by data of neurobiological research, as highly unsaturated fatty acids (HUFAs) are highly concentrated in neural phospholipids and are important components of the neuronal cell membrane. They modulate the mechanisms of brain cell signaling, including the dopaminergic and serotonergic pathways.

Improves Heart Health
Omega-3 fatty acids can stabilize Cardiovascular Disease risk in the following ways, research suggests:
decrease risk for arrhythmias (irregular heartbeat), which can lead to sudden cardiac death.
decrease risk for thrombosis (blood clotting), which can lead to heart attack and stroke.
decrease triglyceride and remnant lipoprotein levels.
decrease rate of growth of the atherosclerotic plaque.
improve endothelial function.
(slightly) lower blood pressure.
reduce inflammatory responses.

Plants For Clean Fats
Renewable & Sustainable: better for us & the planet
There's a lot of illegal fishing and ocean garbage threatening fish so even recommending "sustainable seafood" may stimulate demand for seafood in general, and we would not want to risk contributing to biodiversity loss or inflicting PAIN. It's not necessary to eat fish in order to achieve favorable fatty-acid balance profiles, so we stress reliance on PLANTS to live in harmony. By supporting greater reliance on plants, we nurture an ancient connection to the land that fosters local self reliance in the countryside. Just as seaside villagers deserve to not have their fisheries decimated by commercial trawlers, having robust plant promotion in land-locked areas ensures availability of Essential Omega-3s.

How to Optimize Your Omega-6 to Omega-3 Ratio
The thing is… Omega-6s and Omega-3s don’t have the same effects. Omega-6s are pro-inflammatory, while Omega-3s have an anti-inflammatory effect. Of course, inflammation is essential for our survival. It helps protect our bodies from infection and injury, but it can also cause severe damage and contribute to disease when the inflammatory response is inappropriate or excessive.
In fact, excess inflammation may be one of the leading drivers of the most serious diseases we are dealing with today, including heart disease, metabolic syndrome,diabetes, arthritis, Alzheimer’s, many types of cancer, etc. READ MORE HERE
