Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids

What are Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids?

Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are nutrients that are considered “essential” because they are required for optimal health but cannot be produced by the body, and must, therefore, be obtained from diet or supplementation.  Research has shown that the two most important EFAs are the omega-3s EPA and DHA. EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) are crucial building blocks of child development, playing important roles in every aspect of health, from hormone regulation to brain development.
