Omega-3 fatty acids are essential cornerstones of human nutrition. They are deemed “essential” because we need them for proper health, but cannot produce them on our own. We must consume these fats through diet or supplementation.*
Omega-3 fatty acids are required for a number of body functions, from proper blood flow to brain development. These long-chain fatty acids are integral components of tissues and organ systems throughout the body, including the heart, skin, joints, eyes and immune system. In nature, omega-3 fatty acids occur as alpha linolenic acid (ALA), found mostly in plants, and as long-chain EPA, DHA and DPA, which primarily originate from cold-water fish. The body is able to slowly convert the shorter chain ALA to the more active long-chain, EPA, DHA and DPA. Conversion is limited in humans, making a higher dietary intake of EPA, DHA and DPA necessary. In addition, major changes in modern diet, both in adults and children, over last century have led to a decrease in the general consumption of omega-3 fats, and a dramatic increase in the dietary ratio of omega-6:omega-3.*
Since omega-3 fatty acids are known to benefit a healthy brain, cognition, vision and inflammatory response, achieving the proper balance of omega-3s has become an important health strategy. This requires supplementation for most people.*
