The Importance of Timely Nourishment
In today’s bustling world, we often disregard our internal alarm clocks, which remind us that timely nourishment is imperative for our diet and health. There are two common reasons why we ignore these signs of hunger.
First, our society is so task-oriented that we’re always looking for the next task to complete, which can be detrimental to our eating habits. In other words, we may not really be hungry yet, but since there’s nothing left to do, we eat our meals ahead of time. On the other hand, we can also be so preoccupied with our work that we choose to skip meals.
Eggs have many health benefits, among them being the fact they can be an excellent source of omega-3 oils that can promote better health in those that take it as a supplement. Hens fed on flax seeds are particularly high in omega-3 fatty acids, although eggs have many health benefits other than omega-3.
Most of the health benefits of Omega fatty acids are well known, although many more are being continually discovered as scientists research the uses to which the substances can be put in our bodies. Omega-3 fatty acids have long carbon chains that are polyunsaturated, i.e. contain multiple double bonds in the hydrocarbon chain. As opposed to saturated fatty acids with no double bonds. They are important components of our neurological systems and help to build up cell membranes, but are probably best known for their effect in protecting us from cardiovascular diseases. Omega-3 fatty acids can help us to maintain a healthy heart, and so enable us to live longer.
