What is Omega 3?
Omega-3s are essential polyunsaturated fatty acids. The human body can not synthesize the Omega-3s from other substances, so you must get these important nutrients from the foods you eat and supplements you consume.
Omega-3s are essential for overall health and wellbeing.
What Are The Benefits Of Omega-3s?
As we know, omega-3 fatty acids have been linked to healthy aging throughout life! Over the years, fish-derived omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA have been associated with foetal development, cardiovascular function, and Alzheimer’s disease.
So, it’s important we have a healthy amount of omega-3s in our diets.
Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA): This 20-carbon fatty acid’s main function is to produce chemicals called eicosanoids, which help reduce inflammation. EPA may also help reduce symptoms of depression
Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA): A 22-carbon fatty acid, DHA makes up about 8% of brain weight and contributes to brain development and function
