Omega 3 description
Omega 3 fatty acids are essential for the proper functioning of the body, unfortunately the body is unable to produce them and therefore they must be brought in food.
It is counted in three major types of omega 3. First the a-linolenic acid or ALA more commonly, one must always be given to the body through diet because the body does not manufacture, so it is essential.
While the other two are eicosapentaenoic acid or EPA which is synthesized by humans from ALA (ALA consumption therefore very important). Finally, the last being called docosahexaenoic acid DHA itself is also made from ALA. Therefore it is important that the alpha-linolenic acid is brought in food.
