Omega 3 is one of the beneficial polyunsaturated fatty acids. This means that the body cannot create them itself, but we must get them via our diet. They are therefore important for good health. Omega-3 fatty acids are often divided as follows: DHA (docosahexaenic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid). Omega 3 fats are found both in fish and in the plant kingdom, but the body much more easily absorbs the animal variant. Fish contains a lot of these beneficial fatty acids, and the reason for that is that fish eat algae containing omega-3. After all, a fish eats other fish and thus imbues even more fish fatty acid. It is usually recommended to eat fatty fish (mackerel, herring, sardines) 2-3 times a week to meet the need for omega 3 fatty acids. If you do not like fish, you therefore need a supplement like Be Smart Omega 3. The capsules contain 1000mg and Swedish Supplements Omega 3 contains natural fish oil perfect for those who rarely or never eat fish. Omega 3 fatty acids DHA and EPA contribute to normal heart function. The animal form of omega 3 fat is taken up better than vegetable alternatives.
