Not long ago, our understanding of fats leads us to a simple classification: saturated fats were bad fats and polyunsaturated fats were good fats. Today we know that this issue is much more complex. With fats, it is all about balance –in particular, the balance of two kinds of polyunsaturated fats: omega-3 and omega-6. In small amounts and with the right balance in place (a daily intake of 250mg), essential fatty acids (EPA and DHA) contribute to the maintenance of normal vision and normal brain function.
Your body also requires small amounts of beneficial fats in order to function properly. The typical diet supplies more total fat and saturated fat than we need, and not enough of healthy fats, such as fats from fish, nuts, olive oil and avocados. Fats are a very concentrated source of calories, which is why Herbalife Nutrition Philosophy recommends that you limit your fat intake to not more than 30% of your daily calorie intake.
Fish oil are normally associated with brain health. The main reason is that fatty fish –such as sardines, salmon and trout –have high levels of omega-3. Farm-fed fish including tilapia and some salmon have both omega-3 and omega-6 which are less desirable. The long-chain omega-3 fatty acids(EPA and DHA ) found in fish are a type of fat that is not produce efficiently by the body and we have to obtain them from food instead. Another benefits of Omega-3 fatty acid is that it helps to support heart health.
