In the USA, men and women get 50% or less of their daily recommended intake of omega-3. It is important to balance our omega-6 with omega-3 in our diets.
With 11 types of omega-3 fatty acids, the three most important ones are ALA, DHA, and EPA. The infographic by AuthorityDiet.com below shows where they can be found as well as their health benefits.
In short, ALA can be obtained from plants and converted to DHA and EPA in our body. DHA and EPA can also be found in animal sources such as fatty fish.
Together they are anti-inflammatory, providing benefits from heart to eye health.
