Let’s Talk Food: Omega-3 fatty acids

Omega-3 fatty acids are the structural materials in almost every cell in our bodies. The three main types of omega-3 fats — EPA or eicosapentaenoic acid, DHA or docosahexaenoic acid, and ALA or alpha-linolenic acid — are healthy fats known as polyunsaturated fats. These fats are best known for heart health benefits but the three together are great for brain, eye, skin and hair health.
