Updated: Jul 8
Omega 3 fatty acids are fats which are essential for a healthy body and mind.Dietary sources of these essential fatty acids are limited to foods like fatty fishes ,nuts and seeds .
There are 3 different types of Omega 3 fatty acids :-
1. Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)
2. Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA)
3. Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA)
DHA and EPA are mostly found in fatty fishes like sardines,tuna,anchovies .DHA are seen in high levels in eyes,brain and sperm cells.Some studies show that EPA may aid in reduction of inflammation in the body.Hence ,it is ideal to include non fried oily fishes at least twice a week in your diet.
ALA are found mostly in rich plant sources like seeds(Flaxseed) and nut(Walnut).ALA is broken down into DHA and EPA in the body but the conversion rate is pretty low.Therefore ,it is ideal to take these Omega 3 fatty acids in supplement form,if one isn't getting enough from the diet.The Omega 3 supplements comes in 2 types.
