Description

Omega-3 is a family of fats that are essential for normal health, including the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels.

These fats come in different forms:

ALA (alpha-linolenic acid) cannot be made in the body so must be eaten in our diet.  It has important functions and is needed to make other omega-3 fats.  ALA is found mainly in vegetable oils, rapeseed and linseed (flaxseed), nuts (walnuts, pecans and hazelnuts) and green leafy vegetables.

EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) are long-chain fats that can be made from ALA in our bodies.  They have the most health benefits.
