Omega-3 fatty acids are one of four basic fats that the body derives from foods. Some of the other fats, especially too much saturated fat, can be harmful to the body. But Omega-3's are good far the body and especially good for the heart.
Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are not produced by the body, yet they are important to the health of our cells, heart, brain and body. Consumption of omega 3 fatty acids like eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)-found in fish oil-may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. The FDA evaluated the scientific data and determined that, although there is scientific evidence supporting the claim, the evidence is not conclusive. The body uses omega-3 EFAs as one of the primary components of cell membranes. When there is a shortage of omega-3s, the body uses saturated fat to construct the cell membrane, resulting in less elastic membranes.
