Omega-3 Fatty Acids are essential fats the body cannot produce by itself, thus they must be obtained through diet. Omega-3s are crucial for brain function, as well as normal growth and development. They are also known for their anti-inflammatory properties and potential benefits in reducing the risk of heart disease. The main sources of omega-3 fatty acids include fish (such as salmon, mackerel, and sardines), flaxseeds, chia seeds, walnuts, and certain plant oils. There are three main types of omega-3s: ALA (alpha-linolenic acid), found in plant oils; EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid), and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), both primarily found in marine oils.
