5 Symptoms of Omega 3 Deficiency

What are Omega 3 Fatty Acids?

Omega 3 Fatty Acids are key nutrients that the human system needs from diet to build and maintain healthy working cells. They are also an energy source and play a role in the functioning of many different systems including brain, sleep, gut, eyesight and more.

These are 5 Symptoms of Omega 3 Deficiency

1. Fatigue & Trouble Sleeping

Omega 3 deficiency can affect the overall homeostasis and holistic balance of the body. With that comes an increase in inflammation and a cycle of poor sleep, reduced energy levels, irritability and potential chronic fatigue. 


2. Poor Memory, Concentration & Attention

Omega 3 is arguably one of the most important nutrients involved in the healthy functioning of the brain. Cognitive functions including focus, memory recall and problem solving all rely on chemical balance in the brain. Brain fog and inability to sustain focussed thinking for long can both be symptoms of a deficiency in Omega 3.


3. Poor Circulation - Joint Pain & Leg Cramps

Omega 3 plays an important role in muscle and joint function. A lack of Omega 3 in your diet can reduce the functioning of your circulation and result in pain, stiffness, swelling, redness and even cramping.


4. Dry Skin, Allergic Symptoms, Rashes & Irritations

Omega 3 has been shown to improve skin health. Diets rich in Omega 3 improve skin health. Skin conditions such as psoriasis & eczema can be improved with an uptake in Omega 3 fatty acids.


5. Heart Problems - Cardiovascular Concerns

Your cardiovascular system consists of the heart and the many associated blood vessels (arteries, veins & capillaries) that carry blood around the body. Omega 3 has been shown to reduce symptoms of heart disease, strokes, arrhythmia (irregular heartbeats) and more. Omega 3 has been shown to reduce the level of triglycerides – a type of fat in the blood. A build up of this fat can lead to many heart complications. 



You need Omega 3 fatty acids to live well. One way to address this Omega 3 deficiency in your system is to incorporate Omega 3 rich supplements and food into your daily routine. One tablespoon of The Brothers Green Nutritional Hemp Seed Oil per day is an easy remedy. Shot it straight, use it as a salad dressing or mix it into your smoothie!
