Omega-3 is a component of fish oil. The omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil are Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA). It is the EPA+DHA content of fish oil which provide many of its therapeutic benefits. While omega-3 can be found in foods such as linseeds and wheat-germ, combined omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid are available in large amounts in deep-sea cold water oily fish such as salmon, anchovies, mackerel and sardines.
The average modern Western diet is generally quite low in omega-3 essential fatty acids so most people may benefit from increasing their omega-3 intake whether this is through consumption of oily fish or fish oil supplements.
Omega-3 from fish oil may be particularly beneficial for those wishing to support:
- Heart health
- Brain health
- Joint health
- Nervous system
- Pregnancy – foetal development
- Children – brain and eye development
- General wellbeing
