What are omega 3s?
Omega 3s are fatty acids that are essential to our health. The body cannot produce these essential fats, so we have to obtain them from our diet either as plant sourced alpha linolenic acid or as EPA/DHA sources such as organ meats and oily fish. If you are vegan, omega 3’s can be obtained by taking a plant-based vegan omega 3 supplement.
What do omega-3 fatty acids contribute to?
The long-chain omega 3 fatty acids, EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) are vitally important to health. DHA contributes to the maintenance of normal vision* and brain function.* Both DHA and EPA contribute to the normal function of the heart** and the maintenance of normal blood pressure.***
