The types of fatty acids found in the yolk of an egg are directly related to the types of fat fed to the chicken. Thus, adding products high in omega-3 fatty acids, such as flaxseed , marine algae and special oils to chicken feed can increase the omega-3 faty acid content in the egg yolk. This is good since the american diet tends to be low in omega-3 fatty acids, which are important for optimal development of an infant’s brain and eyes. These fats also have many other important benefits.
Benefits of Omega-3 Fatty Acids in Heart Disease and Cholesterol.
Omega-3 fatty acids are poly-unsaturated fatty acids. Studies show that diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids may help lower triglycerides and increase HDL cholesterol (the Good cholesterol). Omega-3 fatty acids may also act as an anticoagulant to prevent blood from clotting. Several other studies also suggest that these fatty acids may help lower high blood pressure.

DHA is the scientific abbreviation for Docosahexaenoic Acid. It?s an Omega-3 fatty acid, and an important building block for our brains and eyes. Before babies are born they depend on their mothers for DHA. Many international health organizations ? including the World Health Organization-recommend increased intakes of DHA.

Since flaxseed is high in Omega-3 you may be wondering why you shouldn?t just skip the eggs with Omega 3 levels and take flaxseed. You should actually do both. Flaxseed contains the Omega-3 ALA while the eggs contain the Omega-3 DHA. DHA is critical in depression and probably most critical in depression and pregnancy and postpartum.
By just eating the flaxseed alone your blood levels of DHA won?t increase since humans cannot convert ALA to DHA well. However our wonderful flaxseed fed hen?s can convert the ALA to DHA and thusly the DHA will be converted into the Omega 3 level eggs she produces.

Our all natural eggs are from hens fed a special DHA-rich diet. Three to four Saha Omega 3 eggs provide the same amount of DHA as a three ?ounce serving of salmon, Consuming just one serving of salmon a week has been associated with heart benefits. Incorporating Saha Omega 3 eggs into your diet will increase your DHA supply so you can enjoy the health benefits of DHA.
