What Are Omega Fatty Acids?
There are several types of omega fatty acids, but the one may Australian’s are not getting enough of is omega-3. Omega-3 is an essential fatty acid because our bodies can’t make it, so it’s essential we consume enough through our diet.
Omega-3 is made up of EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid), DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), and ALA (alpha-linolenic acid). EPA and DHA are generally found in algae and animal sources, whereas ALA typically occurs in plants. Once consumed, ALA is converted into EPA and DHA for the body to use.
Some of the best sources of omega-3’s are fatty fish such as salmon and sardines, flaxseeds, walnuts, hemp seeds and chia seeds.
Omega-3s are essential for a number of mechanisms within the body. Optimal levels support a healthy cardiovascular system, eye health, maintaining cognitive and brain function, maintaining joint health and supporting our skin structure. This one fatty acid really punches above it’s weight!
