What it is
Omega-3s are 'essential fatty acids'. They are important for your health, but your body cannot produce them... you have to eat them. Whilst there are a number of vegetable sources of omega-3 that provide a form of omega-3 called "ALA", two other types of omega-3 ("DHA" and "EPA") are thought to be a more direct source of omega 3. You can get DHA & EPA from marine sources such as seafood, krill oil and calamari oil.
