Omega-3 fatty acids

Omega-3s are important fats that the body cannot produce itself. It is therefore imperative that humans take in this type of fat through food. Omega-3 fats are found everywhere in the human body in the so-called cell membranes. The most common omega-3 fatty acids are the following: Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which are found mainly in fish or marine animals, are often called marine omega-3 fatty acids. Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which is the most abundant in the Western diet, is found in vegetable oils and nuts as well as flaxseed. The human body uses ALA mainly for energy production and converts it only to a very small extent into EPA and DHA.
