Natural, Healthy, Necessary: Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Omega-3s are good fats! Omega-3s are highly unsaturated fatty acids that differ from the fatty acids in most vegetable oils. Our bodies cannot make these fatty acids so we depend on food sources. Omega-3s are found mainly in the oils of fish such as Alaska salmon, rainbow trout, sardines, herring, mackerel, young albacore tuna, and other fatty fish. Alaska salmon is especially rich in omega-3s.
