Omega-3 Fatty Acids Explained

Omega-3’s are a type of fatty acid found in our foods. There are three main kinds: EPA, DHA, and ALA. EPA and DHA are found in things like fish, whereas ALA is found in things like nuts and seeds. These are very important for our health. Things like brain health, eye health, heart health, memory, and fertility are all impacted by Omega-3’s. But part of the problem with Western diets is that we have too much Omega-6 (which is found in things like processed food and fried foods.) This throws off the balance between Omega-3’s and Omega-6’s and this can lead to a predisposition for disease.
