Overview

  • Group size 40 people
  • Instructor Andrew Cox, CNHC

Do you know how many types of Omega-3's there are? Most people can name 2, some know of a 3rd, but there are 11 known types of Omega-3 fats. "Omega's Oh My" is a presentation about the important Omega fats. Andrew will discuss the role of Omega-3 fats vs Omega-6 fats and how important it is to have a proper balance between the two. He will dive deeper into Omega-3 fats looking at the different types, how they function, and where you can get them in your diet. Andrew will also talk about other beneficial Omegas, like 7 and 9. Omega's are critical polyunsaturated fats for our health. It can be hard to find quality sources of Omega-3's and other Omega fats, so we will also talk about taking supplements including what to look for in a supplement and how you can know you are getting a quality one. After the presentation Andrew is always available for questions, so feel free to stick around.
