Omega-3s are a family of essential fatty acids that play an important role in the body and provide several potentially life-changing health benefits. The two most important types are DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid). DHA and EPA occur in substantial amounts in fish such as mackerel sardines, salmon, etc, meaning it can be challenging to get the proven benefits of larger amounts of EPA and DHA in the diet.
Why do I need to take omega-3?
Omega-3 fatty acids are derived essential fats that are often in short supply in the diet, in contrast to Omega-6 oils that are in nearly all manufactured and processed foods. They are necessary for human health, if the body can’t make them you have to get more of them from your diet. For people who do not eat lots of the foods that supply the essential fatty acids, a daily Omega 3 supplement is recommended.
Most people take in far too many Omega-6 oils and hardly any Omega-3's, resulting in a nutritional imbalance that affects the functioning of the circulation, skin, organs, and glands, and most critically in the brain and nervous system.
Supplementing with Omega-3s is one of the BEST things you can do for your heart and whole-body health. Research approved by scientists of the European Food Safety Authority show that DHA and EPA play a significant role in helping to contribute to:
