Omega 3 is a fatty acid that originates from certain fish and plant-based sources, such as vegetable oils, nuts and seeds. Oily fish, such as sardines, salmon and mackerel, contain the most Omega 3. White fish and shellfish also contain Omega 3 but in smaller quantities. There are several types of Omega 3, with the three most prominent ones being alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). ALA is essential for fundamental health but it can�t be produced in our bodies, therefore we rely on consuming the fat through our diet. EPA and DHA are both long-chain fatty acids that are created from the ALA in our bodies.
Benefits of Omega 3
Omega 3 contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels and normal functioning of the heart. It is well known that Omega 3 can help to reduce triglycerides, a fat that enters out blood after we have eaten, reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease. Maternal intake of Omega 3 also contributes to the development of the foetus� eye and normal brain development of both the foetus and breastfed infants.
