Part Description

LP33084-2   Fatty acids.omega 3
Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids are essential nutrients that include eicosapentaenoate (EPA), docosahexaenoate (DHA), and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). They are made up of 18-22 carbon atoms with the first double bond at the third carbon from the methyl end of the fatty acid structure.[ http://www.dhaomega3.org/Overview/Structures-of-Omega-3-Fatty-Acids] EPA and DHA are found primarily in fatty fish including salmon, mackerel, tuna, herring, and sardines and in algae and krill. ALA is present in plant oils including flaxseed, soybean, and canola oils. [https://ods.od.nih.gov/factsheets/Omega3FattyAcids-Consumer/] There are many health benefits from maintaining a good level of omega-3 fatty acids including reduced inflammation, risk of heart disease, cancer, arthritis, and many more. Deficiency in omega-3 fatty acids can result in fatigue, poor memory, dry skin, heart problems, mood swings, and poor circulation.[https://www.umm.edu/health/medical/altmed/supplement/omega3-fatty-acids] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
