UK can up their omega 3 intakes with GOOD OIL

According to new results from a National Diet and Nutrition Survey (NDNS), the UK consumption of omega 3 is still too little. I think everyone is used to hearing this now, but what exactly does it mean?

Omega 3 deficiency can cause dry skin, dry hair, obesity, high blood pressure, behavioural problems and can ultimately lead to conditions such as arthritis and heart disease. No wonder we don’t stop hearing about it!

I’m sure no-one is a stranger to being told that they need to have more servings of oily fish. But fish is expensive and can contain toxins and dioxins, not to mention that some people simply don’t like the taste! Just 1 tablespoon of deliciously nutty GOOD OIL can boost your omega 3 intake to the full FSA suggested amount of 2 grams of ALA. Try it in salad dressings, drizzled over soups or to cook with. What can be easier than that?
