Omega-3 fatty acids are healthy fats we get through our diet that boost our mind and body. To increase your levels, eat plenty of fatty fish, nuts and seeds

01 7 SIGNS shutterstock_528910711.jpg

1 Dry skin

One of the secrets to youthful and hydrated skin is omega-3 fatty acids. The more deficient you are, the drier your skin will be. Omega-3s also help the skin to absorb nutrients and expel harmful waste products, resulting in healthy-looking, glowing skin.

 

2 Lifeless hair

Omega-3s are found in hair follicles, making it an important nutrient for lustrous, glossy hair. The fatty acids are nourishing and encourage the growth of thicker hair. They also reduce scalp inflammation, which can lead to hair loss. 

 

3 Brittle nails

Soft, peeling and brittle nails are signs that something in your body isn’t right — possibly an omega-3 deficiency.

A study by Oxford University found that people with higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids experience better quality sleep. 

 

5 Poor concentration

Many people have experienced significant improvements in their concentration by ensuring they get a daily dose of omega-3.

 

6 Fatigue

Fatigue is a common symptom of an underlying omega-3 deficiency. Boosting your diet with these fatty acids could help.

 

7 Joint pain

Omega-3 fatty acids derived from fish oils are powerful anti-inflammatory agents, helping to keep the body’s tissues and joints in good condition.
