Omega-3 fats are unique polyunsaturated fatty acids. There are two types of Omega-3 fats:
- Long chain omega-3s such as EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) found mainly in seafood.
- Shorter chain omega-3 ALA (alpha-linolenic acid)
Seafood, particularly oily fish like Salmon, Sardines, Mackerel and Herring – is one of the richest natural sources of omega-3 EPA and DHA. Better still, the omega-3 fats found in seafood are in a form readily used by the body.
