Essential Fatty Acids: Omega-3
Omega-3s are essential fatty acids our bodies can't produce, and for that reason, we need to make sure we include a source of this nutrient in our diets. These fatty acids help support our heart and brain health, and they work to keep our overall nervous system and cellular health in check. Furthermore, omega-3 has been linked to an improved inflammation response, better eye and joint health.

There are several sources of omega 3-fatty acids: fish oils, krill oils, and plant-based oils such as flax oils, algae, and more. Foods such as walnuts, chia seeds, and flax seeds are all sources of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which helps in the formation of the essential fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).

Before starting any new supplement regimen, you should consult with your doctor, especially during pregnancy or if you have a serious medical condition.

Fish & Krill Oil

Fish oil is a well-known source of the essential fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Fish that are especially rich in these fatty acids include mackerel, herring, tuna, and salmon. Krill, a small shrimp-like crustacean living in all the world's oceans, is another popular source of omega-3.

If you consume 1–2 portions of fish per week, you may be getting enough of these vital nutrients through your diet. If not, you have a variety of convenient supplement options right here at PureFormulas. And, don't worry—gone are the days where a fish oil supplement comes with an undesirable fishy after-taste!

Plant-Based Omega-3

Whether you follow a vegetarian or vegan diet or you just don't like the idea of consuming a fish-based supplement, you don't have to live without this essential fatty acid in your diet. Nuts and seeds as well as nut and seed oils are popular plant-based omega-3 sources. So are algae supplements. Algae is the food source that supplies marine life with this essential fatty acid, to begin with. So why not go straight to the source?

Other Essential Fatty Acids

While Omega-3 is the most commonly known, there are a few other important omegas to consider.

Omega-5, found in pomegranate seed oil and macadamia nuts, is rich in nutrients and works to diminish cellular damage. It also supports a healthy inflammation response and your body’s insulin sensitivity.

Omega-6, known as GLA, comes from plant-based oils that can reduce inflammation and promote heart health. Borage Oil, Black Currant Oil, Evening Primrose Oil and Blue-Green Algae are sources that can potentially lower your risk of heart disease, help manage cholesterol levels, and reduce inflammation.

Omega-7, found in sea buckthorn and dairy products, help support overall heart and muscle health while working to lower LDL ("bad") cholesterol. They also promote skin health and aid in weight management.

Omega-9 is in cooking oils such as safflower and canola, avocado and nuts such as almonds, peanuts, and hazelnuts, supporting cardiovascular, neurological, and cognitive function when supplemented moderately.

Choose omega blends to combine the power of these nutrients in one convenient supplement.
