Omega-3 fatty acids are essential nutrients for our health and development and support the functioning of nearly every aspect of our bodies. Of the Omega-3s acids EPA and DHA are two of the most beneficial – together they’re responsible for a number of unique health benefits. EPA supports the heart, immune system, and inflammatory response, while DHA supports the brain, eyes, and central nervous system. The catch? Omega-3s can’t be synthesized by our body and instead must be obtained through dietary means. (Cue frantic googling.)
Unfortunately for most Americans, our western diets are intrinsically low in Omega-3s. In fact, the majority of us don’t consume enough DHA or EPA and should seek some form of supplementation.
