Diets seem to be all about omega-3 levels these days. People are always looking for new ways to increase their omega-3s. The most common way is through fish like salmon. Meat is often overlooked as a viable source of omega-3. Although steak does not have the same level of omega-3 as salmon does, it has a different type of omega-3 that cannot be found in fish. Red meat, such as steak, has alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) instead of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) which are found in fish. Omega-3s are known to lower blood fat content which help to lower the risk of heart disease. Studies are currently showing that omega-3 helps with arthritis, ADHD, and Alzheimer’s disease. It is also believed that they are critical for brain health and development.
