The Beneﬁts of Omega-3
Omega-3 fats are an important factor for good health throughout life.
During a person’s early years, omega-3 fats are recognized as particularly vital for healthy growth and development. As you age, omega-3 fats, speciﬁcally DHA omega-3, may help to protect mental health(1,2), and because omega-3s are anti-inﬂammatory(3) they are increasingly viewed as essential for supporting immune health.Learn More
There are three main types of omega-3 fats in foods:
ALA is considered an essential omega-3. Most people get enough of this omega-3 fat because it is found in many plant foods, including walnuts, flaxseeds, chia seeds and canola oil.
It is especially important to focus on getting enough EPA and DHA omega-3s, which are found primarily in fatty ﬁsh such as salmon(4).
Dietitians of Canada suggest that healthy adults aim for a daily EPA and DHA omega-3 intake of 500 mg(5).
