Fish Oil Briefly Explained

Fish Oil contains the Omega 3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. EPA is short for eicosapentaenoic acid and DHA is short for docosahexaenoic acid. Good reasons to us the abbreviated names!

Read about Fish Oil at Wikipedia.

EPA and DHA are essential fatty acids, which means the body cannot produce these, so they are “essential” to your diet. Your body can produce, or “synthesize” most of the fats it needs from the foods you eat. there are 2 critical  fatty acids, linoleic and alpha-linolenic, that cannot be synthesized and must come from diet or supplementation.

Lineolic acid a key component of Omega 3 acids and alpha-linolenic acid is a component of Omega 6 fatty acids. Omega 3 can also come from ALA supplements or Alpha Lipoic acid.

These essential fatty acids must be included in a healthy person’s diet, as deficiencies can cause a long list of health issues.
