Recent studies on omega-3 fatty acids have shown that not only are there the fatty acids DHA and EPA, but also a whole family of omega-3s, a family of 8. Each fatty acid has a unique biochemistry and role in the body, although the fatty acids work synergistically together.
Why do we need Omega-3s?
- To support the optimal function of body tissues and organs: notably the heart, blood vessels, brain, nerves, eyes, skin, and joints.
- Naturally present in mothers' milk, they are crucial to the development of the infant's brain and eyes.
- They may slow the aging of the brain. Older adults who supplement their diets with EPA and DHA have demonstrated greater cognitive function when compared to those who don’t
- Omega-3 fatty acids may prevent asthmatic mothers from passing it on to their offspring
The USDA suggests all adults eat 2-3 servings of fish each week for optimal health. Unfortunately, most adults eat very little fish on a consistent basis and rarely meet this important nutritional need.
In a recent analysis of data from 2,500 children ages 1-5 years in the United States, 46% of children did not eat fish even once in the last 30 days.
People who do not consume enough fish can get the omega-3 fatty acids they need for optimal health from fish oil supplements
