Omega-3- How It Can Benefit Your Everyday Health

A recent study published in the British Medical Journal  found that people with higher consumption of alpha-linolenic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid commonly found in seeds, nuts and plant oils may have a 10% reduced risk of all-cause mortality, an 8% reduced risk of death from cardiovascular disease, and an 11% reduced risk of death from coronary heart disease, compared with people with lower consumption.

See below for an awesome way to incorporate autumn and Omega-3 into your diet!
