Why are Omega-3's so Important?

Why are Omega-3’s so Important?

You’ve probably heard of omega-3’s and that they’re good for you. But do you know what they are and how they help our bodies? What are omega-3s? Omega-3 fatty acids are essential fats. While they have many functions in our body and are important for good health, our bodies cannot produce them, so we must get them through our diet.

The three key types of omega-3 fats are:

  1. ALA (alpha-linolenic acid): Found in certain high-fat plant foods, especially flax seeds, chia seeds, and walnuts.
  2. EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid): Found in fatty fish, seafood, fish oil and algal oil.
  3. DHA (docosahexaenoic acid): Found in fatty fish, seafood, fish oils, and algal oil.

Why are omega-3s so important? Omega-3 fatty acids have been studied thoroughly over the years. Research suggests that they can positively impact many aspects of our physical and mental health, including:

  • Support the maintenance of good health
  • Support and maintain cardiovascular health
  • Reduce serum triglycerides
  • Reduce the pain in rheumatoid arthritis in adults when consumed in conjunction with conventional therapy
  • Support the development of the brain, eyes and nerves in children up to 12 years of age
