Eggs enriched with omega-3

For several years now, Balticovo has been offering eggs with special added value. One of them is Omega-3 eggs, which we pick in almost all store chains. They are definitely worth buying and included in the daily diet, because omega-3 fatty acids affect almost all processes in our body - especially the nervous system and eye health, hormonal balance, help maintain good memory, thinking. Omega-3 fatty acids are an indispensable part of an anti-inflammatory diet. Because prolonged inflammation damages the immune system, omega-3 can also be thought to have a beneficial effect on our immune system. Omega-3 fatty acids reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.

Omega-3 is added to Balticovo eggs by adding it to chicken feed. These eggs are rich in the omega-3 fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). This is the most common form of omega-3 in the brain and retina. In addition, eggs naturally contain minerals and vitamins, which will promote even better absorption of omega-3 in the body. In turn, omega 3 will again improve the use of vital vitamin B12, which is rich in eggs.

The body is unable to produce omega-3 fatty acids on its own, so they must be ingested. Best with natural foods instead of synthetic capsules. Eggs enriched with omega-3s are an easily available and tasty way to provide omega-3s to your diet, especially if the fish doesn't taste good.

Omega-3 fatty acids are especially needed:

for children and adolescents - for full growth and development,

during pregnancy

elderly people with reduced absorption,

increased omega-3 is spent in times of stress.

Just don't fry the eggs - it's best to cook them at a gentle temperature!

So how many such eggs do you eat to get the most out of it? It is recommended that adults take about 250 mg of the high-value DHA and EPA omega-3 fatty acids a day, but children:

100-150 mg in 2-4 years

150-200 mg in 4-6 years,

200-250 mg in 6-10 years and beyond as adults.

When eating two Balticovo omega-3 eggs for breakfast, about 40 mg of these valuable fatty acids will be ingested, which is very good and enough, because omega-3 fatty acids are also formed in the body from other products - walnuts, linseed, wheat germ, soybeans, tofu cheese , rapeseed oil, pumpkin seeds and pumpkin seed oils, they are well absorbed by fish. The key is not a specific figure, but the inclusion in the diet of valuable products that contain especially healthy DHA and EPA omega-3 fatty acids, or the products from which they are made.
