Consequently these fatty acids are really important for helping to combat feeling of depression and anxiety, poor memory, and to balance hormones and improve positive thinking.
In addition to supporting brain function, Omega 3 fatty acids are also beneficial for other body functions, such as keeping our arteries healthy and keeping the immune system working.
