Omega-3 is a family of essential fatty acids that plays a crucial role in human diet. Human body cannot produce omega-3s on its own. The three most common omega-3s are DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), ALA (alpha-linolenic acid), and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid). ALA is mainly derived from plant sources, while EPA and DHA can be found in algae and animal sources. Food sources which are rich in omega-3 fatty acids include fatty fish, fish oils, salmons, sardines, soyabeans (roasted), walnuts, chia seeds, flax seeds, and canola oil. People who have dietary restrictions are recommended omega-3 supplements such as algal oil and fish oil.
