We have used a table spoon of this oil each morning, drinking it on an empty stomach to cleanse the system. Unlike cod liver oil, this has no odour, but a mild and pleasant nutty flavour. This is a delicate oil and unlike olive oil, which we also love, would not make you feel as if you’ve ingested a ton of calories at the start of the day. By all means, use it on salads and the like, but drinking on its own is a perfectly palatable way to get your Omega 3 even if you don’t like fish. The fact is, with a build-up of mercury in the oceans, we are not even sure fresh fish is always the better source, anyway.
Chia seeds have been hailed as the “new” miracle food product that the ancients knew well for its health benefits. The seeds are rich in Omega 3 oils and can be used to thicken soups or desserts. The oil extract itself is an excellent way to get your daily requirement of plant based Omega 3 ALA. Omega 3 is an essential fatty acid, this means it cannot be produced by the body and must be obtained through the foods we eat.
