The Importance of Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Omega-3 fatty acids like DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) are considered “healthy” fatty acids essential to your well-being. Omega-3 fatty acids cannot be made by the body, and therefore, must be obtained through your diet. Plant sources of Omega-3s such as flax seed do not contain DHA and EPA and the human body has very limited ability to form them from the Omega-3 oils in these foods. When made available to the body, DHA and EPA are incorporated into cell membranes (such as heart cells) and support a critical role in helping to maintain their fluidity.
In addition to supporting heart health, research shows that omega-3 fatty acids help support many other systems in the body including kidney function, the immune system, the nervous system, as well as help support your overall health.
