What omega-3 fatty acids really are

The omega-3 name refers to a whole family of fatty acids. The best sources of omega-3 fatty acids are krill oil and fish oil that contain extraordinary high quantities of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). These fatty acids have a positive physiological effect that justifies regular omega-3 supplementation; they have the greatest health benefits. The most common omega-3 fatty acid is the alpha-linolenic acid, from which the body can produce EPA and DHA, although this is the least active substance biologically. Therefore, it is more appropriate to use omega-3 sources like fish oil and krill oil that contain high quantities of the biologically active forms, EPA and DHA. These two fatty acids are the most important omega-3 fatty acids for the human body. The omega-3 fatty acids are essential since the human body is unable to synthetize them, therefore we have to provide them from natural sources to our body.
