What are omega-3 fatty acids?

Omega-3 fatty acids are types of fat commonly found in plant and marine life. There are two types that are plentiful in fatty fish:

Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) an omega-3 fatty acid that is found in fatty fish. When people refer to omega-3 fatty acids in fish, they are usually referring to EPA.

EPA is a precursor to chemicals involved in blood clotting and inflammation (prostaglandin-3, thromboxane-2, and leukotriene-5). Fish do not produce EPA, they obtain it from the algae that they eat.

DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) is an omega-3 fatty acid that is a major component of the human retina (in the eye), sperm, and cerebral cortex (in the brain).

Forty percent of all the polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) in the brain consist of DHA. DHA also makes up 60 percent of the PUFAs in the retina and half of the neuron's plasma membrane weight. Additionally, breast milk is rich in DHA.
