Omega-3 is considered as ‘essential’ healthy fats and they are absolutely important for a recovering postpartum mum.
We highly encourage you to regularly eat food that contain omega-3 fatty acid such as fish, seafood, and algae, or even in foods with plant origins such as canola oil, soybeans, and walnuts.
Experts recommend eating fish at least twice a week as it is beneficial for overall health and also helps you to lose baby weight. Plus we have included fish oils in our Healthy Mummy weight loss plans
There are so many great elements in omega-3 and there is an endless list of its health benefits to our body. So, we have narrowed it down to 3 main benefits especially for the post pregnant mummy.
Weight loss
A recent study from the University of South Australia revealed that the effects of fish oil combined with proper exercise and diet are important attributes in helping with your lose baby weight plans.
It is also mentioned that omega-3 oil improves the blood flow in our body to the muscles during exercise. Most importantly, it also stimulates enzymes that carry fats to parts of our body where it can be used up for energy. Omega-3 fish oil also helps to increase our metabolism which will then increase our body’s ability to burn fat.
Joint health
This is important to post pregnancy mums as a lot of women feel joint aches and pains after giving birth. Omega-3 fatty acids are a type of anti-inflammatory food that reduces joint tenderness and stiffness that can cause arthritis in the future. Healthy joints will allow us to be highly active in our daily tasks and lets us conduct our post pregnancy exercise plans with ease.
Preventing postpartum depression
In the most recent review by the University of Montreal in Canada, it is strongly suggested that there is a link between postpartum depressions (PPD), the intake of omega-3 fatty acids, and the chemical reactions that enables our brain to produce serotonin that helps us to keep up our spirits and make us feel good.
On top of that, omega-3 fatty acids can also help you improve cholesterol levels, prevent heart disease, cancer, high blood pressure, diabetes, osteoporosis, menstrual pain, and many more. The benefits of omega-3 are endless!
Besides eating food with high levels of omega-3 fatty acid such as salmon and tuna, you can also opt to consume our Healthy Mummy omega-3 fish oil capsules regularly.Combine this with our 28 Day Diet & Exercise Plan and you will be on your way towards getting back into your pre-maternity jeans.
